In the movie The Longest Yard the inmates played the officers in a game of football.  Ultimately, the inmates prevailed.

But, in real life we know that could never happen.  There is no sport or competition for the inmates to become victorious over the officers or law enforcement in general.

Until now.

The decals on the side of the Vermont State Police troop cars are actually made in prison.  They're actually made by inmates.

And that's where the trouble begins. 

Presumably, some clever inmate got an idea to have a little fun with law enforcement. 

The decal used by the Vermont State Police contains the official state seal.  In the seal a peaceful scene is depicted complete with some trees and some mountains and a happy little cow. 

This past week a Vermont trooper took a closer look at the happy little cow and noticed that one of the cow's happy spots looked a bit off.  Further examination revealed that the spot was no spot at all: it was a pig.

So, an inmate with a bad sense of staying out of prison but a good sense of humor actually pulled off getting a pig placed on a bona-fide police cruiser. 

It gets better.

The decals actually made it on to thirty police cruisers.  Apparently, this began a couple of years ago.

Some are laughing, some are not.  The estimated cost to replace all the stickers is about $800.

But, they might not be replaced at all.  As with anything today, one person's insult is the next person's cause. A movement has been created to keep the pigs on the cars.  Titled the Save the Vermont Pigs Facebook page, members are uniting for this most worthy effort.

Which side will you be on?

A close-up of the decal is provided below.

Stay tuned, and share your comments below.
