Green Police... Not Just in Germany!
As you may know, the police in germany wear green uniforms.
Unusual in an international context, it presumably has to do with historical reasons of wanting to avoid black, brown, or even red or blue...
In any case, given the particular attempts in Germany (and individual German states) to clamp down on incandescent sales as posted on before, the "green" uniform may come to carry a new significance.
See the Germans Dim View of Light Bulb Inspections from last month.
And not just green police in Germany...
While this video has been around a while, it seems to be becoming particularly relevant, with recent bans on incandescents, plastic bags etc in various countries and states.
So the video is about green police going around and arresting people for not living "green" enough lifestyles, including using incandescent light bulbs.
An Audi car commercial, as it happens...
The mentioned previous post had plenty more ironic images covering the theme, and the below video from the American Free Our Light campaign.
Bulb pushers likened to drug pushers
“Hey man wanna buy a light bulb?!”
