Police Vow To Target People Who Keep Chocolate In The Fridge
There's not much that provokes outrage quite like the debate around where people keep their food. It's one of those deep discussions that can tear families apart, cause irreparable rifts between friends, and even - if you're Cardi B - inspire fury among your seven-million-strong fanbase.
This time it's an Australian police force that has caused havoc, after saying that they're on the hunt for people who keep their chocolate in the fridge.
In a post on their Facebook page, New South Wales Police Force wrote: "People who put chocolate in the fridge are the same people that don't keep left unless overtaking. We're now targeting both."
Of course, they're messing (I think). You shouldn't worry too much if you are one of those strange types who keeps their chocolate cold. If you don't keep left unless overtaking, though - or the right for our American friends - then you should probably take them a bit more seriously.
In any case, it wasn't long before people clocked onto the force's dramatic promise. Within less than a day, the post has racked up more than 29,000 likes, with over 20,000 people commenting to offer their views on the all-important discussion point.
The pro-fridge crew were quite certain of their decision, standing firm despite the police's threat to hunt them down.
One user said: "How can putting chocolate in the fridge NOT improve it? Amateurs."
Another posted: "Sorry not sorry. Chocolate should be hard and cold and gradually melt in your mouth. Room temp chocolate is just WRONG.
"Keeping left on the motorway though? That's a different thing entirely! So many lane hoggers in NSW!"

And then folks on the other side of the coin had their say - and believe me, they did not take it lying down.
One anti-fridger wrote: "Full flavour when not put in the fridge. I'm very suspicious of people who refrigerate their chocolate! Not enough flavor. Look out!"
And someone else put: "About time someone did something about the actual monsters who refrigerate chocolate."
One brave lady tried to claim game, set and match, commenting: "People who like lukewarm chocolate/half melted chocolate are the same people who are bullied relentlessly and become police officers to desperately clasp at straws for respect."
But then the police got all sassy, adding: "Everyone saying 'BuT wHo EaTs MeLtEd ChOcOlATe' - calm down, you live in NSW, not the Simpson Desert."
Their Facebook game really is spot on.
To top off the debate, another prankster added: "I keep chocolate in the freezer and use both lanes at the same time."
There's always one, isn't there.
