Government proofreading

Kane County, Illinois, cops drove this car around for a week before an officer noticed the message written on its passenger side. Seems the county sheriff’s department orders plain white patrol cars, then has a local company apply the graphics. This message was applied by an employee celebrating his last day before retirement.

Simon Jester lives!

Much as I'd love to believe that, there's no link to verify the details recounted in the story. Surely there'd be at least one news item on a blunder of that magnitude! Also, the larger picture at your other blog appears to me to show evidence of manipulation.
