Friday is National Donut Day, a “holiday” established during the Great Depression to somehow raise money for people who otherwise couldn’t afford a free donut. Or something. So now if you go to a Dunkin’ Donuts and buy a beverage, they’ll give you a free donut. Great? No.
Why? Because here in Los Angeles there are no Dunkin’ Donuts. This is torture for anyone who’s moved here from the east coast, which is most people in the city I think. Why we’re deprived of the best coffee and the best donuts on Earth I don’t know. Maybe the guy who runs Dunkin’ got the clap here in the ’70s and this is his revenge. Whatever the reason, it’s cruel and unusual punishment.
Oh, you can get a free Krispy Kreme also, but it’s not the same. Waaah.
