A Florida man who planned to propose to his girlfriend while naked went to the wrong house and ended up getting tasered and arrested.

Thomas Edwards, 22, claimed he pulled the stunt because his girlfriend told him to propose in the nude. It was 3:45 a.m. on Sunday when he knocked on the wrong door in Casselberry. Homeowners called the police, who had a bizarre and ill-tempered confrontation with the nude man.

Evidently, 22 is too young to get married.

Not quite as bad as proposing at a sporting event and it is on the Jumbotron and/or TV and she says “no.”

That has to be worse than being tazed.

Florida. Not Like The Rest of Us.

Sounds like the dude was seriously drunk. How can he not know which house is his girlfriend's? Surely he'd been there before.

Bigger question is does a taser cause shrinkage?

Proposing in the nude at 3:45 AM on a Sunday because girlfriend told him to but finding the wrong house?

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Then he decided he just wanted to go to jail and spat on the cop to make it happen. He must really must have needed some rest.

Neither. They reported a naked guy at the door yelling that he wanted to Cialis.

He’s lucky his “hose” didn’t get tased. That would have left a mark!

“How can he not know which house is his girlfriend’s?”

The previous sentence you posted answers your question.

“Sounds like the dude was seriously drunk.”

Some guys can’t handle their liquor.

If you have to get that drunk to propose,maybe he should rethink the whole deal.

LOL!!!!!

This is what he gets for thinking his hose is her hose.

At least it wasn't pantyhose he got mixed up about.

Does she use the hose to throw cold water on his (ahem!) 'indecent proposals'?

He should have paid more attention to the address, and less to the hose.

Precisely where doth one bear the ring for proposing when all is bare?

All’s bare in love and war. At least, if you’re this guy...
