The Importance of Spelling

Colombia’s security forces have foiled a plot by Marxists rebels to assassinate the country’s defense minister, in part because the guerrillas had misspelled “policia” on their repainted police motorbikes.

Ten rebels had disguised themselves as policemen and painted two motorbikes in police colours. Unfortunately, they managed to stencil the word “Policia” back to front on the bikes’ fuel tanks.

I can’t be the only one to have been reminded of this scene from Take the Money and Run.
