We all joke about wanting to ride a unicorn over a rainbow, but five women in Minnesota got stuck while riding their rainbow unicorn over the weeds.
While having a girl's day out on a Chisago County lake, their unicorn float got caught on some weeds in the water. Despite having paddles, they were effectively stuck. The raft's large size and the weeds' thickness made it impossible to move, but the women decided to wait for help before clambering into the muddy water.
This left them stranded until two Minnesota police officers spotted them. Police initially pulled over to ask the group for a photo, but the women were happier to see them than they were to see the rainbow unicorn. They waved the deputies over to ask for help, and the photo-op quickly turned into a rescue mission.

There's pranking your boss, and there's drawing giant penises in the sky with airplane exhaust. Recently, five peeved pilots decided to do the latter in an attempt to annoy their boss. The NYPD pilots used a $4 million spy plane to draw the aerial mural, and their message was quickly received.

The demonstration was in response to a feud the pilots had with Inspector James Coan. As the head of the Aviation Unit, Coan had a large say in what they pilots did.
