Twitter followers in Prince George’s County, Maryland, were baffled on Saturday after a woman posted a picture of a Prince George’s County school bus in Munster, Germany.
The tweet quickly began trending among local social media users, even catching the attention of the D.C. City Council:
So, let’s see if I am following this:
— if a PG County school bus is in Germany
— and zebras are in PG County
— then, via the transitive property, it must be Oktoberfest in the grasslands of southeastern Africa https://t.co/BuXh1XSyWh

One social media user said they had seen a Prince George’s County school bus in Düsseldorf, Germany:
Saw it in Düsseldorf a couple years ago!

Another joked that the vehicle was the titular vehicle from The Magic Schoolbus:

Some users took particular note of the vehicle’s customization:
