Like a young woman descending into a creepy house’s dark basement to check out a noise, following a line of doughnuts into a storm drain probably is not a good idea for a police officer.
Playing off the stereotype of cops’ penchant for sweet pastries, the Lincoln Police Department posted this photo of four officers following a line of doughnuts into a storm drain – with a red balloon, the tell-tale lure of the killer clown in Stephen King’s “It.”
The department posted the viral photo with the caption:
“Ok, Gainesville had the ‘hot cops’ and Loudon had the ‘cop on a bucket’ so the Lincoln (CA) Police Department decided to join the fun.
Clown – ‘Hey guys, I have donuts down here!’”
Doughnuts float, too.
