Kicker: A loss of precious pastries

NICK EICHER, HOST: Police in Brookhaven, Georgia lamented a terrible mishap. It happened on Atlanta’s Peachtree Road.

Now, nobody was hurt. But the cargo—oh, that was another story. It was scattered all over the road. Police called it a total loss.

We’re talking about Krispy Kreme donuts here, and the Brookhaven police, very self-aware, indulged in some self-deprecating humor.

You know, cops and donuts.

On Facebook, the police reported: “As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time, and the … loss of these delicious pastries has deeply affected all of our officers.”

But in true holiday spirit, the Gainesville, Georgia Police Department sent them a batch of sympathy donuts.

Such a brotherhood!
