Humor,  Sunday Funnies

Sunday Funnies… {National Doughnut Day}

A well known (by some) annual event took place Friday…. did you participate? Do you know what it was? Don’t worry if you didn’t know, but here’s a heads-up for next year:  The first Friday in June is known as National Donut Day in the United States.  Which brings us to another idea to consider… Is it doughnut or donut?  This week’s Sunday Funnies share a little humor and a little history to help put a smile on your face. Here goes….

Seems ‘doughnut’ is the original term, but by the late 20th century, it had morphed into ‘donut’ – due in large part, the story goes, to the growth of Dunkin’ Donuts. Curious? You can read more [here].  Whichever way you spell it, hope you enjoyed a sweet treat this week. If not, mark your calendar for next June… go ahead, we’ll wait for you.

    I missed eating a doughnut on National Doughnut Day. It’s probably just as well. Hmm, I wonder if I spell it ‘donut’ instead of ‘doughnut’ there’ll be less calories that way…

    Ha! Yes, I missed eating one, too, but I LOVE your theory. 😉

    Ha! Thank you for the reblog & sorry for the agony. 😉

    Makes perfect sense, right? Each letter packs on an extra 50 calories.
