  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?

  3. Bob Miller says:

    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.
