Too bad this is a photoshop. It does no credit to the guy who made it up, either.

Correction: When I posted this originally, I wrote this caveat: "Received this in an email, but since I don't subscribe to AP, I can't verify its authenticity. Besides, it's Greek, not Latin." Turns out it is a photoshop, and the moron who did it doesn't even know the story enough to discern Greek from Latin.

Sadly, looks like a 'shop. This is probably the source of the original image : http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/02/presidential-seal-recovered-from-philly-freeway/

It's a shop job. The real pic is of a secret service agent reattaching the seal to the door of the limo. The seal that is over on the right in the pic you posted. Google search President limo loses seal and you will see the original pic.

Aw, I've been suckered! Sorry I sent this to you without verifying, Mike - I've never been that good at looking at a picture and knowing it's a photochop job (unless it's just ridiculously obvious). Well, the pic gave me a chuckle nonetheless.

Does anyone really believe that you can get any where close to Obama's car. Just try it nd see what happens.

"moron who did it doesn't even know the story enough to discern Greek from Latin." Actually, that was one of the details that made it persuasive; it's something an AP reporter would write.
