Facebook funnies: Queensland Police's top 10 hits

SOMEONE at the QPS had to think of a way of reporting the hunt for criminals without being perpetually glum.

The solution - a long stream of dad jokes.

1. This State of Origin thing needs to stop.

Please stop calling we cannot arrest Hayne for his performance last night. Either one. #oneinarow #iminaglasscaseofemotion #whatisthisfeeling?

2. Who said pop stars and dad-lebrities can't be part of a positive message?

Take it easy on the wet roads this morning. Possibly being added to from the tears of One Direction and Top Gear fans #BNETraffic #1D

3. Probably the one time someone's said 'YOLO' without hurting themselves immediately afterward.

Don't drive through flooded roads because #YOLO. If you hold up your end of the bargain, we'll never, ever use #YOLO again. Deal? #bigwet

4. If Nickelback's good enough for our Federal Treasurer it's good enough for people who drive through floodwater.

Our unwanted Nickelback CD is still floating around the office somewhere. We reserve the right to 'gift' it to the first...

5. Not sure if body-shaming or somebody at QPS hates Valentine's Day.

Q: Why did the banana go out with the prune?A: Because it couldn't get a date.#lovethepruneyourewith

6. Someone gave dad the Facebook login.

Truck carrying bananas has rolled on Paradise Rd, Larapinta. Don't go ape if you can't get through. Split in another direction.

7. No word on how the cows could afford the car in the first place.

No bull. Cows on the Gateway M'way following traffic crash at Nudgee exit. Grumpy cows are moo-dy #bnetraffic

8. Fortunately they were arrested under the VLAD laws.

Two cows and a calf plan a late meeting - “Where should we go tonight?” “The Gateway at Boondall looks nice.” #gatewaycows #bnetraffic

9. The cows have magic now. Buckle up.

#PROTIP: If you do have to be out on the roads, PUT YOUR LIGHTS ON. Invisible is cool in Harry Potter, not on the road.

10. They're like the beatles but without the talent or longevity.

Don't be concerned if you hear that traffic is heading in One Direction to the Suncorp Stadium tonight. Be more concerned if you've agreed to go along...#BestDadEver #OneDirection #bnetraffic
