Emily Midling wanted her beat-up Ford Explorer to stand out in Kalamazoo, Mich. That's 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 to get a closer look.

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.
