Cops go for ride on giant slip-n-slide

Someone called the cops in Asheville, N.C., over the weekend because some people in a neighborhood built a home-brewed slip-n-slide in the street, which should immediately lead most of America to exclaim “why didn’t I ever think of that?”

They were having a block party for the 4th of July weekend and someone apparently didn’t like the “noise” of kids having fun.

There’s always someone to ruin a good time. But on this day, it wouldn’t be the cops.

“Once we realized no laws were being broken and everything was fine, we decided to mingle a little bit,” said Officer Joe Jones.

    That is a long slide. Pretty cool. We used a camper tarp in my day.

    If the kids are having too good a time, better call the cops.

    Find the people who called it in and arrest them

    Rats! I missed this by a couple days. We went through Asheville on Friday and I can attest it was hot.

    It feels hot enough here to have one.
