What's a police department to do when the roads get icy and the drivin' gets dicey?

Why, they get down with their funky selves and launch a rap battle!

That's what happened this week when staff at the Kindersley RCMP detachment posted a reworked version of Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby'' to their Facebook page.

The witty ditty warned drivers to take extra caution on the slick highways with lyrics like: "I rock winter tires like a toboggan; Put your seatbelt on so you don't hit your noggin'.''

Alright stop! Collaborate and listen, Snow is back and these roads are glistenin'The snow grabs a hold of me...

Not to be outdone, the Edmonton police department posted its own take on "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.''

"Now this is a story all about how

My car got flipped — turned upside down

And I'd like to take a minute

Just sit right there

I'll tell you how my car spun out of control in mid-air..."

Edmonton Police Service just dropped the mic on us. Way to go! ^mm

Awright, awright, awright, thought the officers of the Calgary police department, who turned to Sir Mix-A-Lot's classic "Baby Got Back'' for rebuttal.

"I hate winter and I cannot lie

You other drivers can't deny

When a storm blows in with an icy, snowy glaze

And a snow pile in your way ..."

I think we just got owned by CPS's own version of Sir Mix Alot. Do you think we can top it? ^mm

And lest the battle be confined to police, the fire department in the tiny community of Millet, Alta., chimed in with their own version of B.G.B.

"I like big trucks and I cannot lie

You highway drivers can't deny

That when you only leave an itty bitty space

Things could blow up in your face..."

Kindersley RCMP, Edmonton Police Service our members come from the same generation. Meet officer mix a lot.I like big...

But back to the police and the Regina city department, which went the route of Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk.''

"This weather, that ice cold

Chief Hagen, that white gold

This city got slipp'ry streets

And speedy drivers

Crashin' cars to pieces..."


With the battle in full gear, the Kindersley detachment pulled out all the stops and decided to tell the public what it really, really wants in a second entry, to the tune of the Spice Girls' "Wannabe.''

"I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really, really, really wanna put my seatbelt on...''

And with that, the mic was dropped.

DJ Mountie hits it one more time!Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want, So tell me what you want,...
