Okay, so I know that getting steroids off of the street is (somewhat) important, even though there are a few juicehead gorillas who'd disagree with me, and I commend my local police force in its efforts.
How are we supposed to fear and/or respect the police when they choose to name drug-take-down-operations after candy?
Yes, it's true.
Operation JELLYBEAN is what the Fredericton Police Force named their two-year investigation into a local drug trafficker.
Who came up with that beauty? How could officers say it with a straight face? I'd be in the middle of a briefing, see the word jellybean and totally start laughing. Mostly because it's funny but also because not laughing at something I want to laugh at just makes me laugh more.
I mean, seriously, they might as well have named it Operation Sunshine and Rainbows.
That being said, Operation Shrinkage-Not-In-A-Pool would probably have been too obvious. As would Operation Back-ne. And Operation Hulk.
All right, all right. Maybe Operation Jellybean's not that bad...
No wait. It is.
