As an inside joke, the officers decided to have the cake decorated in police-blue ribbons and sugared bees (for a “sting”).

The band, led by a city police officer, announced themselves as a weed-loving group named S.P.O.C, which stood for ‘Somebody Protect Our Crops.’ In actuality, it was just COPS spelled backwards.

They played the song ‘I Fought The Law (and the Law Won)’ as a signal to begin the bust.

“Let’s have some fun,” an officer shouted. “Everybody here that’s a cop, stand up! Okay! All the rest of you motherfuckers put your hands on the table, because you’re under arrest! This is a bust!”

And yet, somehow I still feel like I’ve been to receptions that were worse for me than this one was for that guy…
