Someone Set a Hilarious ‘Trap’ for the Texarkana Police Department

There’s no doubt that the United States has entered a crucial time in our social history. We are, seemingly, as divided as ever across all sorts of lines. Sometimes what we all need is a good laugh and that is exactly what happened to the Texarkana Police Department on April 20. Playing up the cops and doughnuts stereotype, someone decided to set a little trap for the local police.

The culprits (I like to imagine it was a group of good-hearted jokesters) hung doughnuts from a tree on W 7th Street where the officers typically park for traffic enforcement duties.

The Texarkana Texas Police Department shared the photo on their Facebook page with the caption:

OK… We can’t stop laughing. Someone left these for us on W. 7th Street where our officers occasionally park to work traffic enforcement.

If it is a trap, it might have almost worked. We had to muster all our willpower but somehow managed to avoid the temptation. 🤣😂🤣

To whomever left these, thank you. We didn’t eat the donuts but are really enjoying the smile that it put on our faces.

So the next time you need a little brightness in the world, just remember this doughnut trap. And when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Or string doughnuts on it and wear it like a necklace. The choice, my friend, is yours.
