Montreal Artist Pranks Police With Fake Car Made of Snow

Montreal artist Simon Laprise spent four hours sculpting a false vehicle in a snow removal zone.

Amused by the fake car, officers left a ticket which read "You made our night!! Hahahahaha :)".

Laprise's car was unfortunately demolished in the morning by removal crews.

Maybe I should have just made a catch-all title, like "Weird shite in Canada" or something.

Next up we have: https://www.buzzfeed.com/ishmaeldaro/my ... .cxX0YxrDm
Someone Has Been Anonymously Sending Tons Of Sex Toys To Canadian Universities

...For months, mysterious Amazon boxes have been showing up at dozens of universities and colleges across Canada containing sex toys, electronics, and other items. The shipping boxes were sent to the schools' student unions with no return address, no bill of sale, and absolutely no explanation....

...Finally, the reps at Lakehead contacted the RCMP, who looked into the matter. After speaking with Amazon, Ching said the RCMP told her that some ambitious Amazon sellers were trying to inflate their sales numbers on the website by sending the unsolicited items out en masse.

An Amazon spokesperson said the company investigated and suspended the sellers....

...The free swag stopped showing up about two weeks ago. How exactly the scheme worked, or how the recipients were chosen, is still a mystery, though....
What...the hell??

Step 1: Send out free stuff to random universities and inflate your sales numbers.
Step 2: ?
Step 3: PROFIT!
