Nothing made Gothamist laugh more this morning than this Times story about partying teenagers in Rye. The kids were having a party and a neighbor called the police to complain about the noise. In anticipation of the police visit, the teens, perhaps well-schooled in police procedure (police can't enter without a search warrant during noise complaints), turned off all the lights in the house and laid low, in hopes that the police would leave:

The police could see the partygoers inside as they shined their flashlights through the windows, and parents were summoned one by one as the officers traced the license plates of cars parked near the split-level on Fulton Avenue. But even the parents could not coax their children from the house.
"It was strange," said one parent, who spoke on the condition that she not be named. "The kids wouldn't let us in. It was a scene with parents knocking on the windows, saying, 'You'll never drive again,' threatening to get them out."
Finally, at 3:15, one of the partygoers opened the door and the police and about two dozen parents entered to find 50 juniors and seniors from Rye High School and empty beer cans and liquor bottles in every room, said Detective Lt. Joseph A. Verille of the Rye police.

There's nothing like overprivileged suburban teens and their parents. Then, to prove that even though Dawson's Creek has ended, the tradition of precocious, SAT-word-throwing-around kids still exist, the Times notes that a senior at the teens' school called the plan "somewhat nervy and audacious," but she's probably annoyed she wasn't invited.

It turned out the parents of the kid who threw the party were out of town. Typical. For more about teenagers who throw parties when their parents are out of town: House Party, Kids, Risky Business, Pretty in Pink, Drive Me Crazy, Say Anything, and Teen Wolf.
