It’s been a red-letter past few years for both teens and sexters alike. So it’s not surprising that, today, we find ourselves in the era of the sext-addled teen. But the Ontario Provincial Police think they might be able to stop teens at the source with a potent combination of app-based sarcasm and “keep calm and carry on” jokes. Bless their hearts.
The app being promoted by Canadian police, dubbed Send This Instead, boasts 57 “humorous and sarcastic” potential dick-pic-responses that, as you might have guessed, teens can “send instead.” While some might argue that responding with the sort of message even Nancy Reagan could get behind would only provoke deviant sexters more, the Ontario Provincial Police say go for it.
