I might have mentioned it before, that I work as a police officer. Two days ago I stopped a car to conduct a sobriety test (just a routine thing). The driver spoke with a small accent that I didn´t recognize. When I explained how to blow into the instrument, he asked me to tell it in english instead. I didn´t understand why, as I thought he was from Sweden. He then explained that he had been living and studying in Sweden for one year, 71-72. This was his first time back, showing this country to his wife. Unbelievably good at speaking Swedish! Now, I asked where he lived in the US, and he told me Washington DC. Well, you know, I HAD to mention The Great Zucchini... He and his wife laughed and looked properly puzzled and told me that, yeah, he is quite a celebrity in the area. They lived near the Avalon theatre where they knew TGZ sometimes performs.

Hawkan, I should have thought of this great practical joke first.

Those two people may run into Zuke and tell him about their encounter. Maybe yes, maybe no........ but they could, you never know Smile
So, PM Zuke with the city you were in, the make, model, and color of the car, what the two were wearing, and the weather conditions. You're a Polisen... you should remember all that Smile

Now... think about how funny it would be if two strangers ran into Zuke and told him about their encounter and he responded with... "Yes, It's coming to me". " You were driving a _color_ _model_ and wearing a _color_ _style_ (of clothing) and it was _ ?_ degrees that day" .... "Yes... my psychic powers still work"

IF that was to happen... the look(s) on their face(s) would be priceless.

Jay: that would have been a great idea, but I have a lousy memory. The man could stand right in front of me now and I wouldn´t have a clue. And no...I am sure they wouldn´t know me. Sweden is a small country, but not that small.

Dynamike: I have to confess I don´t know what that means Smile
