I was going to vote Obama until you said that. If you're going to hand out doughnuts, at least hand out good ones.

And come on, Bono handed out pizza. Nothing beats pizza. Except possibly lasagne.

Bono it is.

For the record I haven't voted yet. I can't decide.

I've been in the room with both; Obama 3 times Bono twice.

I've met Obama, the closest I've been to Bono was about 10 feet.

Both were exhilirating and uplifting.


Thanks for the correction, Varitek

I was literally thinking about typing the same thing.

It's like we communicate telepathically.

I'm sorry, but Ukrops donuts are the best, but people outside Richmond don't know the glory of Ukrops


Great. Now I want a donut. Thankfully they sell Krispy Kreme on campus

Psh, Krispy Kreme and Dunkin' Doughnuts (please, people, let's not remove half the letters) both suck.

Goldstein's on the Gold Coast do good doughnuts though. I could totally support someone that hands out Goldstein's products. Especially their blueberry danishes. Except they're only in southeast Queensland, so I don't see either Bono or Obama discovering their goodness in a hurry. And nobody here will know what I'm talking about, except maybe Eazy-V if he ever comes into this forum. Oh well.

Please stop taking chainsaws to our language and wrecking the spelling.

(Don't we have about ten threads on EYKIW about this already?)

This is what happens when he have no new album. Even the off-topic forums suffer.

I like to make fun of the Bush administration. Actually, I usually like to weep in a corner by myself over them, but, to-mato, tom-ato

well, i see *some* countries still do whatever it is the Queen wishes.

whereas *other* countries have the gumption to stand up and point out the very clear fact that it is far more efficient to spell "color" without a "u" and that it's far easier to fit "donut" on a sign than the needlessly letter-y "doughnut." we're busy people. we have places to go and things to do. you've got to multi-task to rule the world, so why not shorten things when you can?

you know what's hilarious?

my computer -- a MacBookPro, developed by, obviously, Americans -- is telling me that i've spelt "donut" correctly but have misspelt "doughnut."

it's also insisting that there's no such word as "spelt" and that it should be "spelled."

Well, you can always select "English (Great Britain) and English (USA) or English (Australia) in the setup.
