Mad Friday comes but once a year, and this year South Yorkshire Police force offered some tongue in cheek advice to those commemorating the day.

For those not in-the-know, 'Mad Friday' is typically one of the busiest days of the year for pubs and clubs in the UK.

This year, the London Ambulance Service said it was preparing to attend an estimated 700 alcohol related incidents.

Ahead of the day, South Yorkshire police tweeted the following tongue-in-cheek top tips:

  1. No. You cannot wee in our helmets. Whether you are pregnant or otherwise.

  2. Please do not be offended if you ask us for a selfie and some of us say no. It's not you. It's us. Some of us are extremely shy and some of us definitely aren't photogenic. Honestly.

  3. Please don't ask us for a lift home. The reply may offend you if it isn't for a genuine emergency.

  4. If you come up to us with your arms out saying 'arrest me', we probably wont. But thanks.

  5. If you point to your mate and say 'he's here. He's here. Arrest him', again, we probably wont. And if we don't look amused, it's because I guarantee, you wont have been the first person to have said it.

To be fair, put these requests into your work environment on any given Friday, and they seem pretty damn reasonable.

Here's hoping it worked.
