i could use a donation like this

If there is an increase in police officer candidates in Italy, I’m pretty sure this is the reason.

Can you imagine driving along the highway and seeing this in your rearview mirror?

  1. Ah, the Polizia… I miss those guys, their cute pants, and their funny little lollipops of death. That was the first thing the military told me before I moved there with my family when I was a kid – if you see a policeman waving a lollipop, that means he can legally shoot you. Gotta love those Italian coppers, they’re so cute. :)

  2. I hope they get free maintenance with the car. I couldn’t afford an exotic car if they donated it to me due to the service and insurance costs.

  3. From what I’ve heard about Italian rodes and driving, I give the car a week before the mirrors are ripped off by a passing car. Heather, do you think the cops will wave that lollipop before shooting at the guy that does it?

  4. Heather: That lollipop thing is funny and scary at the same time. What about people who don’t know about the littly sugary treat of death?

    Levi: That’s a good point, although I don’t expect a brand new car would need all that much for the first year or two.

  5. Jason – What you’ve heard about Italian driving isn’t quite accurate – Italian drivers are some of the best in the world, right up there with the Germans. They’re fast, but they’re cooperative. Only in Italy can a two-lane road instantly become a three-lane road simply because one car wants to pass another. Everybody just gets along.

    Dan – The Polizia can usually instantly tell if you’re a stupid tourist, especially Americans. They tend not to shoot those people. They just wave the stick and say, “Stupido Americano!” (I heard that a lot there.)

  6. Well that’s not too bad. I prefer being called a stupido Americano as opposed to getting shot.
