Ah, the good old police force. We look to them for protection, to keep the peace and we also enjoy that faint odor of bacon that accompanies them everywhere they go. Sure, we mock them now and then by joking about their love of donuts (when in reality, we all know they prefer Twinkies) and we curse them when they pull us over for going five miles over the speed limit (when in reality it was more like twenty), but all in all we’re glad to have them out there watching out for our safety and well-being.
