Please keep your couch indoors

A Minnesota city isn't taking the issue of couch porches -- sitting down.

The St. Cloud City Council has voted to ban outdoor upholstered furniture.

The ban wouldn't apply to couches and the like that aren't visible from the street.

The St. Cloud Times reports violators would get a warning for a first violation, with a $100 fine on the second offense.
