Get it? Because cops are dirty dick-lickin' pigs! Ahhh, classic inmate prank. In all actuality you've got to hand it to these cell-dwellers; the way they incorporated the pig was pretty clever and seamless. If you're looking at the decal -- wondering where the hell supposed pig is -- look at the spots on the cow. The pig is a spot. The spot is a pig. And the prank lasted an ENTIRE YEAR. Such a victory.
According to Reuters:
Inmates working at a Vermont correctional unit's print shop managed to sneak a prank image of a pig into a state police crest that is emblazoned on police cars, and 30 cruisers sported the design for the last year, officials said on Thursday.
The official crest depicts a spotted cow against a background of snowy mountains, but the inmates' version featured one of the cow's spots shaped like a pig in an apparent reference to the pejorative word for police, state police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro said.
"It dishonors the memory of those past and present members, especially for those who have lost their lives in the line of duty," Dasaro said.
Dishonors, Shmishshmonors. Sorry, police spokeswoman Dasaro, but if you think a bunch of hardened criminals give a bloody shit about anyone who is a cop or died on duty you're delusional. These inmates are practically your screen-printing slaves and they bested you, for an entire year no less. Good for them. Your cavalier editing process and gross lack of detail is what's really at fault here.
