As the middle-aged couple walked toward the intersection of Hollywood and Highland, two women, dressed in mini-skirted police uniforms, yelled out to the man, "HEY, handsome, we're going to have to ah-RREST you!" The husband and wife hurried on, not even reading the famous names on the stars on the sidewalk, and managed to catch the walk signal before it started its blinking orange countdown. Slowing the pace as they reached the opposite side of Hollywood Boulevard, with Disney's El Capitan Theatre in sight, the wife remarked, "Well, that was interesting!"
The husband, with the blank stare of confusion, asked, "What was interesting?"
"Didn't you see those women dressed as police officers who threatened to arrest you?"
"No; I was too focused on getting to our destination."
