  1. ^^ I can agree with that, but, I bags you get to explain it to the cops if we get pulled over.

  2. Great quote. Have to admit it reminds me of the general message in Pratchett’s Discworld when he talking about recruiting the police, etc., to some extent. Would at all surprise me if it’s inspired partly by that quote.
