Whachu Talkin’ About Good Buddy?

Virginia State Police are dropping the well-known “10 codes” and switching to plain English. Instead of 10-4 they’ll say “Affirmative,” they’ll replace 10-20 with “Location,” and the stiff will be a “Dead body” rather than a 10-82. To help make the transition they’rv been given a list of approved terms to use. “You don’t want to say ‘dead skunk in the road’,” a spokesman said. “You want to say, ‘There’s an animal carcass.”‘ The old “stinky 10-82” was much simpler. And that’s a big 10….uh, big affirmative, Good Buddy.
