Florida Sheriff’s Panties Ruffled After Discovering His Rug Says ‘In Dog We Trust’
It’s too early to know for certain that this was all a grand scheme from the liberal, hippie, apetits agenda in order to strike God out of all places of Capitalistic worship, but what we do know is that one sheriff in Florida was pissed to find out his $500 rug paid homage to our canine lord and savior.
The Washington Post is reporting that the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office displayed the rug in-office for several months before discovering the typo. “In God We Trust” is emblazoned upon the great seal of the even greater state of Florida, but somehow this rug was made with “In Dog We Trust” as seen below:

Department spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda told the Associated Press a deputy noticed the mistake on the forest green rug placed at the entrance to the office after a couple of months. WFTS-TV reported the $500 rug was in the lobby for only a couple of weeks.
Barreda said the mistake was made by rug manufacturer on only one of the two rugs the department ordered. Maybe the company didn’t spell-check its rug. Or perhaps the problem was that it did. In any case, the rug is being replaced by the manufacturer, and the misprinted rug has been removed from the lobby.
As a native Floridian I’m in no way shocked by this, because down South in the Sunshine State we’re dog crazy. We’re likely to take more offense to someone harming a dog than a homeless person, because dogs > people in the eye of a Florida Cracker. It’s the sad truth.
