Some of the officers at the Kansas City Police Department can be a colorful bunch of people with a sense of humor.
And a birthday prank they played is getting a lot of attention on social media.
On Tuesday, they covered an officer's police car with 4,000 sticky notes to mark his 50th birthday.
It was even color-coordinated: yellow body, blue doors and pink tires.
Officer Stuart Littlefield took it all in stride, "They got me good this time. This was supposed to be a low-key birthday. When you're 50, you don't want anyone to know about it. And that kind of blew up in my face."
The police department points out all of this was done off the clock and workers paid for the notes themselves.
Officer Littlefield says once he figures out which exact officers were involved, he will get them back with a practical joke of his own.
