Transfer the "donut-loving" stereotype from police to radio DJs

This petition had 212 supporters

**Update 5.30.16** Please enjoy our live on-air DJs vs. COPS donut-eating contest.

The idea that police officers are the only professionals in American society who eat more than their fair share of donuts has been pervasive since the 1950s.

The truth is: we radio disc jockeys eat just as many.

What's more, some police resent this stereotype, but there are no radio DJs who do. 

In recent years, there has been plenty of ungrateful sentiment about our hard-working and honorable police, so it's the least we can do to go ahead and take this stereotype off their hands. This way, when the police choose to eat 1, 2, or 3 donuts in a sitting (or whatever number of their choosing) they may do so without shame or side-eye smirks. 

Sometimes we radio disc jockeys spin as many as three songs in a row, so it's an accepted fact that we have plenty of time to eat donuts, while the police are busier than ever.

It is a generally-accepted fact that radio disc jockeys eat more donuts than police, and we are the pound-for-pound favorite for the best group of individuals to receive the donut stereotype.
