Saanich chips

The video of a police sergeant describing drunk university students stealing Zellers barbeque-flavoured chips from an open garage in Saanich, B.C. created buzz that just refused to die. After originally making the viral rounds when it first aired in June, the story was picked up in the United States and had a second life north of the border in July as well. Just as tipsy teens can’t refuse tasty treats, we can’t get enough of a funny story.
