A tweet from a Kansas police department has gone extremely viral for its hilarious response to a young person who failed horribly at mocking them.
It began when a person by the name of Blake Albert tweeted a short video of himself vaping near a city utility vehicle to appear “gangster.” He tweeted the video at the Lawrence Police Department, presumably because he thought the car he posed in front of was a cop car.

But it wasn’t — and Lawrence PD was quick to inform him.
“I’m sorry Blake, this is awkward, but that’s not a police car. You vaped in front of a water service vehicle. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯,” the police department tweeted.

The tweet was so popular that it has garnered more than 100,000 retweets and 300,000 “likes” in less than one day, a feat that most tweets never achieve.
But the replies to Albert were just as hilarious:
Do you do requests, Blake? Maybe a fire truck, next … or perhaps a municipal land tax assessor vehicle
