When some Canadian teens posted an invite to their “frosh” party on social media and the police RSVP’d, they didn’t think the cops would actually show—until they did.


After seeing the party’s invitation on Facebook, according to the Independent Journal, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police replied to the soirée-hosting kids in a town called Lumsden:

Thanks for the invite to the underage frosh party in the #Lumsden area on Saturday night.

Lumsden #RCMP will bring chips and salsa and a choice of possible charges for the party goers, including:

• Open liquor – $250

• Underage drinking – $360

• Littering – $250

• Providing liquor to a minor – $1050

Or you can make the smart choice and avoid meeting our officers!

Stay safe. ^mm

The kids were like “Sure man, whatever, eh” but then the RCMP did come, with snacks like Doritos and salsa. It turned out that the frosh party is a chaperoned event held each year and even provides designated drivers. The legal drinking age in Alberta, Manitoba, and Québec is 18, and it’s 19 everywhere else in Canada. The teens seemed thrilled at the cops’ arrival, as well as their gift of snacks—and no one was ticketed, and everyone took photos and had a great time.

We should all move to Canada.

We should all move to Canada.

Wait until we’ve ousted our wingnut dictator in a month. If the ousting fails, shit’s going to get fucked up here. A fourth mandate will obviously go straight to his head. The third already threw out most of his sense of subtlety. I’m afraid what he’ll do if white supremacists and rich assholes manage to get him through again.

His party’s been convicted of cheating all three times. He seems really nervous now, if the vehemence of his attack ads is any indication. People are calling for UN oversight for the election.
