STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Emily Midling did not buy the fanciest car. It was a beat up Ford Explorer. And she wanted the car to stand out in Kalamazoo, Michigan, which is why she had official-looking emblems put on each side of the SUV. They read: Kalamazoo County Department of Zombie Removal. And, of course, according to the Kalamazoo Gazette, the cops pulled her over. They wanted to get a closer look at the zombie emblems on the side of the car and to admire them.

It's MORNING EDITION.
