A Mod Squadist Proposal

As I was driving to work today, I saw a police car heading in the opposite direction. I commented on how I thought it would be difficult for him, had he seen me doing anything wrong, to turn around in traffic to pursue me. That may seem like a strange comment to make but my car, my rules. One of my passengers then said "the po-po won't shut you down." He followed that pop culture reference with another, mentioning how I shouldn't worry about "Five-oh." I suddenly realized that the cops in New Jersey shouldn't be called the 5-0. I think that, following in the tradition of the great state of Hawaii, each state's police force should be known by the number of that state's admission to the union. So when I see a state trooper on the NJ Turnpike behind me, I can say, "Uh oh. Gotta watch out for the 3."

For the nick name for your state's police force, please consult http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0763770.html

and let's make this happen. I'm counting on you.

  1. So in Israel, would the mishtara be 5-1? Or is that Canada?
