Humor is a great shelter during the most challenging times, and it explains why the coronavirus pandemic has sparked so many jokes and memes all over the internet.

The Lawrence Police Department has also proved that having a laugh is no crime. In fact, it might be all we really need. Their Twitter account has a staggering 170.7K followers who get updated with practical, humorous advice on living through the virus daily. “Return your TP to the store,” “2 pounds of ground beef is enough,” and “don’t crime” are among the department’s wisdom nuggets. When police are saying “we’ll rock this together, but apart,” they really mean it.

And some laugh-induced and stress-relieving endorphins are a big luxury these days. Pandas, don’t forget to show your support to the amazing Lawrence Police team and upvote your favorite tweets!

Go hard or go home

It’s not the first time the Lawrence Police Dept. has been praised for their sense of humor. After their tweet about a Tostito’s bag which served as a breathalyzer went viral with 132K likes and 74K tweets, the department was now part of the big game. The man behind the account, public affairs officer Drew Fennelly, has managed to create a bridge between law enforcement and millennials. “What we have found is that using humor generates a lot more interest because people don’t expect a police department to be funny,” Fennelly explained.

Easy enough to diagnose: cr@p for brains thinks they can profit off of others in a crisis.

However, it may be hard to keep one’s spirits high while the coronavirus crisis is in full swing. It’s been reported on various media channels that there’s a great shortage of coronavirus tests in the US—only 14K tests have been conducted nationally in comparison to 20K tests run daily in China.

Health care experts are worried that the country isn’t prepared for a pandemic. Dr. Eric Toner from John Hopkins Center for Health Security said that “We’re not prepared, nor is any place prepared for a Wuhan-like outbreak.” If people were able to access the needed intensive care, the doctor is convinced that “we’d see the same bad outcomes they saw in Wuhan—with a very high case fatality rate.”

It’s foolish to hoard food that doesn’t keep. Unless you have a big freezer – or a large, hungry family – that ground beef will go bad long before you can eat it all.

I don’t know how expensive a DUI is, but compared to the risk, it’s not expensive enough. It should be considered attempted murder.

Wouldn’t know. Around here people don’t need guns to celebrate New year. And this year all fireworks imitating guns, rockets and canons will be banned. No “BOOMS “KABANGS” and “Ratatatatatatatat” this year.

Some people live under the impression that road signs and traffic laws do not apply to them. It’s usually the same people that drive trailertrash tractors. Or as Lawrence Police calls them: “Suburbitanks”
