Since July of 2009, those behind the popular @ScanBC Twitter account have been actively tweeting out the happenings of emergency service crews throughout the province in a raw and unfiltered fashion.

For the most part, the tweets touch on serious subjects like assaults and robberies but, on occasion, they showcase some of the ridiculousness that happens in Vancouver on a daily basis – in a hilarious way.

2014 has been a busy year so far for @ScanBC. With that in mind, we’ve decided to highlight some of the more amusing tweets of the past five months.

Without further ado and in no particular order…

20. I wonder if they used the STOP or SLOW side of the sign…

 

19. “Meet me at the swingsets at recess! You’re going down!”

 

18. Pretty sure their parents should be handling this kind of policing.

 

17. “Santa sure doesn’t look quite like I remember… And he’s seven months early…”

 

16. Most men can’t wait to get away from their ex-wife. This guy? Not so much.

 

15. Say it ain’t so(il)!

 

14. Be honest, how many of you went inside after seeing this one just in case you were next?

 

13. Michelangelo, is that you?!

 

12. #firstworldproblems

 

11. The girl’s parents from #12 could probably use some parenting lessons like this one.

 

10. This is what prolonged exposure to public transit can do to a person.

 

9. The “Dine and Dash” strategy doesn’t work so well when you order to your front door…

 

8. I’ve heard of the Masked Crusader, but never the Maskedurbator…

(h/t @anothermutterer)

7. Must have been a tough day at the office for ex-Canucks GM Mike Gillis.

 

6. We’ve all daydreamed about doing something like this while stuck in rush hour, but this guy actually followed through. Respect.

 

5. Someone has been playing way too much Grand Theft Auto.

 

4.  January 1, 12:01 a.m. : “This new year, my resolution is to not get stranded on a log in False Creek!”

January 1, 3:53 a.m. : “Damn it…”

 

3. They must have been hop-ping mad with each other! Get it? Cause beer has hops? I’ll see myself out…

 

2. The way this one is worded, I’m not sure whether it’s the two parents or their kids who are stuck in the high chair.

 

1. I’m not sure what’s a bigger robbery; what this guy did or Starbucks charging almost $5 for a coffee.
