    That’s a long john … the cop is dreaming that he can retire, float on a long john in coffee and still look slender…

    Aha… someplace I lived when I was growing up…
    for military brats, it’s hard to remember where you picked up which slang,
    but I’m thinking probably Madison, Wisconsin, where I went to high school….
    a long rectangular doughnut was called a “float.”


    It was late enough in my upbringing that, as an adult, I still called it a float…
    until I realised nobody knew what I meant.


    Other places it was called a longjohn… here in California it’s a bar.


    But maybe Dan is from Wisconsin…

    I grew up in Southern CA and our local donut shop called it a longjohn. But I had never heard of float. Thanks SS.

    Longjohn and float, never heard of either names before for a pastry, learn something new everyday.

    I’ve been in WI my whole life. No matter what we call them they are all a part of the “donut” family. Ya know , cops = donuts.I have 2 kids, 2 nephews and 1 cousin that are cops and they ALL hate the reference! [:-) I tell them to just blow it off.
