With the start of the school year inching closer, the Gilbert Police Department decided to share some helpful advice.

And by the looks of the online response, the internet approves this message.

The department took to Twitter to share their sage back-to-school shopping advice and warn parents about some questionable items for chemistry class.

Since it's posting, the tongue-and-cheek message has received more than 40,000 retweets and 60,000 likes on Twitter. Even actor and comedian Seth Rogen thought it was funny enough to deserve a retweet.
