I often encounter with some strange words and abbreviations, and just don’t know what exactly do they mean. Well, that what was happened to me when I heard R.I.P.D. for a first time. The last two letters means nothing but Police Department - that was what I thought. And first two means .. Rocky Indigo or maybe Real Idaho? I was wondering about it for a few days and suddenly I did something (I went to watch Prisoners online, in fact), and then my curiosity has taken me over and I googled it. Rest In Peace Department - that is exactly what it means!
Of course, it was just some unusual and I looked further. I knew that this is a movie, but it was just a time when nobody knew what this movie will be about, and there wasn’t even trailer for it. But I didn’t give it up! I keep on my searching and find a comic book, not so popular, but in one row with another names that was in my hearing. It was kind of strange. And then I got the answer - it’s just a word game, combining R.I.P abbreviation with L.A.P.D. It’s because this comic (and movie, obviously) telling us a story of special department made by dead people to protect the living world from those who died and wants to go outside just for a bit of walk. Funny name for a department, and now I can tell you some funny R.I.P.D spoilers in addition to this little story, if you want. Don’t be shy, go on and read it!
