Have you noticed that there’s this whole new phenomenon of local law enforcement “having fun” on social media? Surely you’ve seen the police doing the Harlem shake or pulling people over to give them ice cream (not actually fun, guys!) or some such nonsense.

I’d argue that this post from JeffCo is one of the more refined entries in the genre. They get one point (out of one) for a quality visual gag that does not reflect any meme-thirst whatsoever.
