Five young Swedish men decided to have a bit of fun on the job, and photographed themselves nude in their workplace. Unfortunately, their workplace was a slaughterhouse in the Borås area, and on Tuesday they were charged with breaking food hygiene laws.

The men worked as cleaners at the abattoir, reported Swedish Radio Sjuhärad. But what was meant to be their private little joke among the carcasses and entrails got out of control when the pictures were spread on the internet.

It wasn't long before the matter came to the attention of the police - and the National Food Administration.

The problem was not, apparently, the nakedness itself, but the fact that they were prancing around without protective clothing.

"It seems like they didn't follow hygiene regulations," said the Administration's inspector, Martin Lindblom, to the newspaper Borås Tidning.
