In the 2012 animated film Wreck It Ralph, the main character visits the world the Sugar Rush video games and finds high calories, sugar addictions, and mean girls.

All the characters and places in the video game are made of candy and sugar syrups – pretty sticky!  Once in the game and stuck all over with candy, Wreck It Ralph is pursued by the sugar town’s only two police officers – two talking DONUTS with firearms and motor bikes. One is a cake donut with sugar icing and the other is a frosted long john with a cream filling and a gun.

Together the donut cops look like Laurel and Hardy, but our local police officers in Central Ohio are earning a $900 bonus for passing a voluntary physical fitness exam every year that has only a few categories but significantly increases their health statuses. Insurance costs are going down lower that the total payout of all the bonuses each year!
