Playfully calling out two other departments in the process, the Lincoln Police Department got a lot of laughs, likes and social media shares after posting a photo parodying Stephen King’s “It.”
The photo shows four officers (not identified in the post), with one following a line of doughnuts down a storm drain. The familiar sights of a clown and a floating red balloon round out the image.
Posted to Facebook on Friday night, the post had racked up more than 89,000 likes and more than 100,000 shares as of Saturday afternoon.
