Torturing Friends to Score Points?

OK, I found this bit of frightingness while surfing “stigmanet.org” today :

July 26, 2009 – News of the Week …

When I first told Tom about Psycho’s jelly-oozing donut named “Massive Head Trauma,” he wept, then got angry. (Kip Berdiansky calls people like Tom humorless and over-sensitive.) Tom, a caring person, is in extreme pain. His wife had a near-fatal brain hemorrhage in April and she struggles hourly to regain her life. Although he may be partly right about Tom’s sensitivity,

Why the hell would you go out of your way to describe a head-trauma doughnut to someone who is so far out on the edge emotionally?  It’s not like the writer was just mentioning it in passing… clearly someone who’s writing “wekly news” about the donut shop is castng it in the darkest terms.  Why rub your friend’s nose in it?

A donut sitting on a shelf in a donut shop harms nobody.   It doesn’t refer to anyone.  Even if it has a face.   Nobody named the donut after anyone.  It’s a donut.

When you single out an individual and say “Hey – this oozing, red donut is just like your wife!” … then you are causing pain to an individual, a person.

So …  don’t do that! Comprendez vous?

Ich bin?

Makes the JFK == Jelly Donut thing all the more funny.  The word “Berliner” in “Ich bin ein Berliner”, can refer to a type of Jelly doughnut made in Berlin.

If good  ol’ Jack Kennedy called himself a donut, maybe Psycho DOnuts could run with that.  Heck maybe that is included in Oscar Wright’s secret plan?  Change three letters (“MHT” becomes “JFK”) and all the protesters go away?

Psycho blogger compares John F Kennedy to a doughnut

No, really.  He did.  Even when posting ALL IN CAPS LIKE HE’S YELLING, he still doesn’t surpass the ice pick page for sheer over-the-to-ness.

Here’s a handy guide for the perplexed :
