A news story that comes along every once in a while is just so wildly on-brand for our group of friends that we immediately think: “OMG MY FRIENDS MUST SEE THIS!”. Well, this is one of those stories.
Four Minnesota women took a unicorn float out on a lake over the weekend, and they ended up getting stuck. The police were required to come to their rescue, and it’s one of the funniest stories of 2018 so far, because it can absolutely happen to all of us.
The women were floating along on a unicorn float in Chisago County Lake, but got tangled up in a bunch of lake weeds. Fortunately for them, Chisago County sheriffs just happened to drive by and see their “watercraft”, so went on to help them. To make things better for everyone (well, except maybe the women stuck on the unicorn), they recorded this golden video that went absolutely viral!
Driving by a local lake we observed a bunch of women in a 🌈🦄 stuck in the weeds…Yes a rainbow unicorn… With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills they were pulled back to the dock! #wherestheglitter pic.twitter.com/qCyhfJqAa9

A sheriff using the term “mad rescue roping skills?” It’s time to move to Chisago County!
So they literally lassoed the laughing women and their mystical floating creature and pulled them to safety. The department also has incredible sense of humor about the whole thing.

It’s OK ladies, it sounds like we have a backup, just in case of emergency on the high seas. All you need to do now is gather your gals, blow up that unicorn, and set sail!
