Weirdness and donuts

I came across Psycho Donuts on a “Top 10 Weird Donuts” list.  Not sure why they chose the Donut Fries  as the prime example of “weird” there.   Donut Fries are “weird” in the same  way that the fast food kid’s meal option of  “apple fries with carmel dipping sauce” is “weird”.  Why not the “Psycho Donut” …  which involves pretzels and a bit of chili powder? The Nutty Cookie Monster?  Even the “Headbanger”  (actually, the “Massive Head Trauma” donut.  The official name was changed due to threats from the soulless forces of political correctness.)

Anyhoo… the list in question seemed to be more about foreign donuts than weird donuts.  (“Gasp!  Pumpkin?  In a sweat treat?  Those Crazy Spaniards!!!  Coconut custard filling???  In  a donuts?!??!!  Thai MADNESS!!!”)

Is “weird” really “cute” or “foreign”?  I sez no.

Now *these* are weird donuts (if edible).

Protocols of the Elders of Donuts

Hey … I wonder if the Left’s newly-recovered scruples will spread to their Donut-hating bretheren. Only time will tell.

Oh, yeah — here’s a video interview.

Donut Guide for El Lay!

I came across this list of “exotic” donut shops in the LA area.  I guess someone came down with a case of Psycho Donut envy.  Anyhoo, the list includes a presonal favorite of mine, Stan’s Corner Donuts.  Stan’s is the home of the (formerly Rece’s) Peanut Butter Donut… a donut suffed with peanut butter and covered with chocolate icing & chocolate chips.  A meal in itself!

His taste in beer is lacking, but Obama is a doughnut gourmet!

(It’s possible he’s just sucking up to cops after the “incident“, but I think his donut-eating is sincere.  Just my opinion, though.)

… also, freakin’ ETHIOPIANS!

I didn’t even know there was an Ethiopian Review.  From “We Should All Be So Crazy”  :

Of course, by decrying what Psycho Donuts are doing, organizations like the National Alliance for Mental Illness have brought massive local and national publicity to the bakery as well as attention to themselves. As the saying goes, maybe they’re all crazy — as a fox.

“Cops and Donuts” takes “unthinkable, terrible” concept… and runs with it!

A commenter on another blog, who goes by the name of “hymes“, when reacting to a condemnatory description of Psycho Donuts suggested :

Would they have water boarding for kids or even “the hole” as in prisons for kids in any donut shop?

Well, the awesome people over at Cops and Doughnuts, the 100% cop-owned doughnut shop in Clare, Mi have realized the dream!  Can it get any more awesome?

Delicious “Cancer Ice Cream”

My neighborhood donut shop caused quite the stir for a while … an d still seems to in some online quarters.  So I’ve been watching the “fun” for a while now. A common trope seems to be to compare “mental illness” to AIDS or cancer. Today, I saw yet another variant in the comments here :

(Rachel Weldon) … I know, let’s start a “Chillin with cancer” ice cream shop & see what people think. You could have bald nurses & people hooked up to fake IV’s of Chemo. Funny? Lighthearted? Obviously not. Mental illness is a debilitating disease, which causes many people to lose their loved ones, their freedom, and in worst cases their lives. . .

A couple of things occur.

First, a “Chillin’ with Cancer Ice Cream” shop isn’t funny (at least as described).  “Psycho Donuts”  and “Heart Attack Grill” are funny.  Funny kinda just is.  If someone thinks about it, then declares that, yes, it has all of the proper elements of “funny”… he probably isn’t laughing.

Second, we are told that 26 Percent of US Adults suffer from “mental illness”… and some claim that is a conservative estimate. If that is the case, then the cancer comparison simply goes out the window.  It’s simply a fact that 1/4 the population of the USA is not experiencing anything close to dying of cancer.  So the analogy is simply false.

Wow! *Another* donut shop for the list… in Seattle!

I’d complete forgotten about Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts; reminded by the Something We Dreamed blog.

Sadly, I don’t think I’ll ever have a chance to go to Murder Burger. Too far.
