Wisconsin Man Holds Up Intruder Covered With BBQ Sauce

Here's fodder for those looking for one more reason why Minnesota is better than Wisconsin. No paranoid whistling burglars using barbecue sauce for camouflage here.

According to local television news WWMT Channel Three, an Appleton, Wisconsin couple called police after finding a man in their basement covered from "head to toe" in barbecue sauce.

He called the outfit "urban camouflage."

The homeowners say they woke up to whistling sounds. The husband grabbed his shotgun and headed toward the basement where he found the sauced-up intruder. He held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

The guy told officers he had covered himself in barbecue sauce because he wanted to hide from the government.

He now faces burglary charges.
