    I think she’s trying to see if she can be any Cruller to Caulfield. And this is the Hole truth!

    But why don’t you ever hear of people Bakin’ Bacon? And if your shoemaker brings dessert to your pot luck, is that the Cobbler’s Cobbler?

    Some jokes work in the spoken form. Some jokes work in print. Sometimes the joke is in that the two don’t always successfully interchange.

    Doughnuts are great. I’m not so sure about donuts.

    So what do you need if you have a dull native of Warsaw?

    ….. wait for it ….

    ….. wait for it ….

    Polish polish. (Or, if you need to improve your language skills in their native tongue, you’ll have to polish Polish.)

    I’m here all week folks

    Once owned a Mister Donut shop where we sold doughnuts. Getting a kick out of the discussion.

    This brings to mind a comic in which Donald Duck kept yelling different spellings of “fore” on a golf course and not understanding the corrections by his fellow player.

    I once dropped out of a Hospital Week spelling bee (sponsored by the Medical Transcription team for some reason) because I thought they said “androgenous,” and it was “androgynous.”

    Actually, it’s a ‘doughnought’ ( a zero made of dough).

    Who knew that Doughnut vs Donut would turn out to be the line in the sand that it is? Or maybe it’s not, maybe it’s just a number of people I happen to know. Then again, maybe that Boston-based chain dropped its name by half to simply “Dunkin’ “ for a reason.

    This is unusual for me, but while my brain favors the correct spelling, my gut is more comfortable with the butchered spelling, at least for the kind of doughnut/donuts people mostly buy today. If you take out the sugar and the fat, there’s not much to them, so why spell it out? I don’t buy or eat doughnuts of any kind very often, so I’m happy to let the fighters fight while people eat whatever they want.

    Although anyone in the doughnut camp who spells “all right” as one word with a single L, I’m not taking seriously. I’ve got my line in the sand, too.
