What do you send cops when you want to thank them for finding, say, $80,000 worth of stolen musical equipment? Sure, a long, rambling note is a good step. But we think dozens of doughnuts from Bake For Me! Bakery & Café really drives the point home. After the department tracked down the band’s stolen touring van and equipment, Portugal. The Man sent “dozens” of the sugar coated pastries to the Homan Square police station yesterday. Why send doughnuts instead of something else? As the band explained on Facebook, “Doughnuts are delicious and sending cupcakes is a little to mamby-pamby for the sissys you most certainly are not. All respect.” Check out the rest of the thank you note below.
Thank you Chicago PD and don’t be offended when we send a pile of doughnuts over. We are understanding in its simplicity. Its like a marathon runner eating a stack of pancakes before the run. It is much needed energy in your long days of crime solving and we appreciate this because, well, doughnuts are delicious and sending cupcakes is a little to mamby-pamby for the sissys you most certainly are not. All respect.
