Sorry 'bout that

Wrong image; I didn't know how long it would take me to make the right one so I deleted that post. But here it is again (with the right image):

Just goes to show; we can all be cheated by our very own eyes. Now for something completely different:


It is! -a speed trap that won't ruin your car!
Our shocks can't handle frost heaves of that magnitude!

Thanks for clearing that up Locutus! -You must really have been bored…

But tell me; how does one go about searching for an image -or rather- an original image? -I've been trying that on many different occasions but only been able to find obvious 'fakes' or copies without any mention of who made them originally.
There's no special technique or anything unfortunately (that I'm aware of). I remembered that the rally where that picture had been taken had been held in San Francisco, so I just tried a couple variations using Tibet Rally San Francisco Olympics Nazis in Google Image Search until I found some blogs that were discussing it. One of those blogs had a link back to the Flickr album the picture originated from.

I did that too. And then I thought I'd write it all out, but then I got bored and wrote out the small version so I could get some chicken.

And I didn't want to point out the facts because well....it was Spiff's sign.

I think it's a Joe The Plumber joke.

I'm thinking it's probably a Mormon joke, although I'm not clear on the details.

ITL got it. No plumbers in Medieval times so I figured a smithy would be the next best thing.
