National Doughnut Day = FREE Krispy Kreme Donuts
The best doughnut related thing that comes to mind right now is a line from Vonnegut’s “Slapstick“, which he uses when someone not related to him in a newly devised artificial family structure for society asks him for help: “Why don’t you take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut!” It isn’t meant to be rude, only to remind the person that he has a large extended family now who he should be asking for support from, not some random person on street. Hi ho. Back to edible, stationary donuts, not the rolling hard to fuck kind.
Everything has a gol dern National Day these days, which cheapens their meaning to the point of almost tarnishing the thing being celebrated. The upside is that whatever is being celebrated is generally all offered for free. Donuts are no exception. Today, participating Krispy Kremes are giving them away for free and at Dunkin you just have to buy something. CLick here to find your nearest Krispy Kreme.
