  1. That is very obviously Noel, dressed as a priest, calling in his latest crazy prank. 😉

  2. Noel Black says:

    What pranks? The cop looks like he’s made out of wax and what kind of priest wears cop glasses?

    Obviously an undercover operation back in the 70s, almost ’60s… Obviously the Clergy member is using a maniquen in the driver’s seat to avoid attention/apprehension while using the HOV lane.

    Noel noticed the cop glasses, one might also consider the cop haircut of the person holding the old school Motorola Micro-phone; not quite Howie Long style but close, given the 40 year or so gap.
