Donuts are sweet

Donuts are sweet

There a too few things in this world that make a kiwi man smile; clearing a pool table from the break, seeing the Aussies lose on a sports field, or perhaps dropping a mate in it with the Mrs. But one thing we all can’t get enough of are donuts and not the type stuffed with fake cream you get from the Korean bakery up the street either. I mean tyre destroying, black mark making donuts, as men we just love them. Is it the primitive yell of the squealing tyres, or simply the stupidity of it all? Who knows, and it’s not my place to try and explain it.

But perhaps donuts shouldn’t be looked upon as an act of childish behaviour, and the world should accept that they do have special significance. Here are some examples:

Car Maintenance
I once pulled some donuts in an attempt to dislodge a stone from the brakes, it turns out that I needed to replace the pads, but it could have worked.

Revenge
I had friends who took a very hung-over mate out to get some breakfast and stopped to do some donuts to punish him for poor behaviour the night before only took a few donuts before the g-forces got too high and he had to be let out for a spew.

Relationship Counselling
You have a girlfriend, you want to break-up but you don’t want to hurt her feelings by not calling or another lame male method. It’s simple take her out for a seafood dinner then start pulling donuts on the way home, will probably only take a dozen before she dumps you. Problem solved.

Conspiracy Theory
Aliens love pulling donuts too, crop circles are just UFO donut marks.

Breaking World Records
Usually not associated with donuts, but recently the Guinness World Record for pulling 10 donuts in a row was broken by excellently named Russ Swift from the UK. Russ achieved the feat in just 16.07 seconds, and he’s no 18-year old boy racer either. Check it out below.

In addition; no responsibility will be accepted for any lost cred due to the shitty execution of donuts in front of friends or unimpressed women.
