One of my favorite subplots in The Simpsons episode "Bart the Mother" involves giant lizards who go on the run and start eating pigeons. Everyone's happy with this, because no one likes pigeons. When Lisa complains about the infestation she's told to chill because they'll send in Chinese Needle Snakes to kill them. Then, they'll let loose snake-eating gorillas. And then "when wintertmine rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death." It's a great, government-sponsored solutions to some problems and not dissimilar from Lawdog's view of the booted Louisiana State Trooper.

This is right on so many levels. Forget about how the cop thinks being a cop means he's above the law. What I love about this picture is the twisted stupid government logic behind it all. See a car parked in a fire zone? BOOT IT! Sure, it will make it more difficult for the fire truck to push it out of the way. Sure, little Timmy might die in a fire, but we'll damn sure get our $100. And we can put that $100 towards saving other little Timmy's by buying 3/4 of a tank of gas for one our manly totally hetero SUVs driven by one of our upstanding state troopers who was definitely not picked on in high school.
