Okay, it’s not on spring break – hell, it’s not even in America – but there’s something about a drunk dude in the back of a police car belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”…
Now that’s some funny shit. [h/t Balloon Juice]

He has no voice and the drunken state doesn’t help like it does with most at a karaoke bar. Whatta ya want from a Canook, eh?
You have to be impressed with his determination, though.
Drunk? I hope he refused the blood test. lol
Beelzebub does indeed have a devil put aside for him.
Do you think the guy does requests?
Wouldn’t it be funny if the troopers had asked him for one?
Funny? Some gallows humor about the Mounties. When speed traps are set up, those guys are on foot. They wear an “X” across their chest that looks like a school crossing guard. Their setup is like a sextant and they sight in on you approaching. They read your speed and jump out in front waving their arms and signal you to pull over. Doesn’t work so well in the winter with icy highways. Three Mounties were killed inside three months from speeding cars skidding and failing to halt in time while I lived in the Edmonton area. That was the toll only in that area. The Mounties also gave classes (free of charge) to drivers on how to control a skidding car on ice in trying to cut down on the attrition to their ranks, but they didn’t stop the practice of jumping in front of approaching cars. Wayne’s World, indeed.
My son was driving in the area at twilight and this glow-in-the-dark “X” appears with glowing hands on a bridge. He was signaled to pull over , braked immediately and at the end of the bridge turned right onto the street where sawhorses were set. As he was proceeding down the street paralleling the River, imagine his surprise when he was pulled over by a cruiser who cited him for fleeing the stop. He thought it was a Detour what with the motioning and the sawhorses. He was cited for fleeing the scene as well as going 63 kph in a 60 kph zone. That translates to 38 mph in a 35 mph zone. On my advice , he appealed the fleeing the scene because he still was traveling slow and trying to figure out where the next detour sign might be to get him back on the road. The Mounties said, “No!”, ignorance of the law was no excuse and he was guilty of both crimes even though the circumstances showed plainly that he wasn’t fleeing the scene (which carried a heavy penalty). He appealed to a judge and was also turned down. He was leaving Canada to go back to Cal Poly soon after appealing. He left without paying a fine or appearing before the judge and with my blessing. That’s why he has a warrant on his head if he ever goes back. Excuse my scofflaw attitude, but I concurred. We had had enough of the school crossing Mounties and their wanting to be different from their southern neighbors to the extent that they risked their lives jumping in front of cars. Being a stickler with guests didn’t set too well, either.
Putting his glasses on when he’s finished is classic and a great topper.
I suggest a post spring break drug test for this guy.
Truly a poor man’s Jeff Bridges …. “BRANDED!!!”
And a good day to you sir!!!!!
1) I don’t know how the mounties didn’t crack up in the beginning, and
2) now he’s confessed to killing a guy.
This is a UGA recruit for DB, right?
It’s only our citizenship requirement that’s stopping us.
The best part is what he says at the end
If it had been Nickelback we might’ve seen some good ol-fashioned police brutality.
