Photo: This will probably be the happiest image you see all day


A picture is worth 1,000 words. We won't use that many to describe this. But it's a great example that true joy can happen for anyone, anywhere, doing any job.

A Swedish police force (Polisen Västra Skaraborg) shared the above photo on its Facebook page.

According to a Reddit thread, the officer borrowed the sled from some neighborhood kids, and went on a (quite fun, apparently) trip down the hill.

The police department offered an explanation (in Swedish, of course). Here's part of it, via Google Translate:

"Today is frozen on the roads and actually snow in some parts of our area so watch out for the treacherous slippery . Slipping may, however, be of great joy when one of our officers offered himself and went sledding with some children in Grastorp. ... Drive carefully and a call to all adult rides more sledding life is more fun when .// Morgan"

Not a perfect translation, but the point remains: Life is more fun when sledding.
