Police that are mimes
  [vote for,

We have police-women, police-dogs, why not police-mimes? Imagine looking down the barrel of a 9mm Glock at the stone cold painted face of a police-mime motioning for you to drop the weapon and step away from the vehicle? Nothing strikes fear into mortal men like the piercing stare of a mime with a gun. It's guaranteed surrender every time.

       They would need silencers.

       Ftlog, NO!   

       (Not that I'm currently planning any crimes, of course, but widespread deployment of mimes might tip the balance.)

       Deployed in conjunction with Clown Strips, this would be a very effective deterrent. Or it may violate international law.

       A mime with a gun? Surely that should be an invisible gun, for the sake of tradition.
my face your, Jul 23 2003

       It would take them absolutely ages to get anywhere, running against the wind all the time. And that's assuming they could get out of that blasted invisible box first.

       You have the right to remain silent...

       Mimed-cuffs are user friendly.

       i wonder what invisable doughnuts taste like?

       Very easy to counter indoors. Just open a window and walk away at a leisurely pace while the mime cops are blown out of the door by imaginary wind.
