    Vermont inmates hide pig in official police car decal

    Thu, Feb 02 21:45 PM EST

    By Zach Howard

    (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.

    Vermont contracts with correctional facilities employing prisoners to make some print products, including the cruiser decals. Police said someone who works at the print shop changed the emblem from the officially sanctioned design.

    A police employee noticed the prank on Wednesday and reported it. Police said the 60 16-inch door decals would be removed as soon as it was practical.

    The "source and timing" of the change to the design is under investigation, Dasaro said.

    "While some may find humor in the decal modifications, the joke unfortunately comes at the expense of the taxpayers," Police Major Bill Sheets said in a statement.

    Yeah, that is kind of funny. Who is the idiot that decided to let the imates work on the decals without checking their work?

    Heck, if they think they have to do something about it, just get a little paint and make it look like a blob insted of a pig. But that would be too easy, simple, and would prevent spending more of the taxpayer's money.:D

    Well gee whiz. That ain't so bad. Only a pig would notice it! On the other hand those other figures off to the left appear to me mocking me.

    Seriously? How many people noticed this and how many of them have a sense of humor?

    If the Police Department doesn't want to look stupid they shouldn't ask prisoners to design their decals. Duh!

    That reminds me of a long time ago whenever one of the artists for the Disney movies would draw something perverted in the backdrop on the movie covers..like the little mermaid, the cover used to have a castle in the background,and one of the towers was a big long penis..there was supposed to be something dirty on almost every movie cover,but had to look really close to find it.

    I also wondered what those weird little mushroom/skeleton critters by the cow were actually supposed to be. It would be soooo cheap to print out 60 tiny little beige decals of a different spot shape and stick them over top of the existing ones compared to redesigning, printing, and removing/installing the old ones.
