    Just wondering

    Is the use of caution tape here a little extreme?

    The wonders of photoshop...

    For those of you slow on the uptake, this is in fact a joke. A funny one at that!

    Hey, we tape like that... What, the rest of you don't?

    hell, I have to make sure I have ten rolls of tape in my car before each shift. It is the LE version of TPing a house (umm... dead body in front yard being a slight variation from the teenage version of this prank).

    you guys DO realize that this is a joke, right?

    Believe me that is a joke to the extreme. That is our goofy uniform, you can tell by the hat a mile away. We probably use the least amount of tape. Granted we use yellow for the outer perimeter and red for the inner. Besides that the only ones that have tape are the working coppers and the sgt's.

    The best joke is to tape a house wait for the wife or husband to come home and say do you live here? they yes and then reply do you have spouse who lives here? Watch as they start to freak out, then say something like do you know where they are right now? The person then starts to lcompletly lose it. I know it's sick and I would never do it, but as far as dark humor goes it is funny.

    I figured he was just covering the bases since in case anyone skipped my post because I lack a Verified tag.

    That's why I posted the source instead of just the picture. The Onion is notorious for a little dark humor. I just thought it was funny.

    And I thought I was a sick son-of-a-bitch... But I think you've got us all beat! Remember never to let me have you plan my surprise B-day party or anything like that...
