    The Tour de France sounds good but it looks like a phallic symbol.

    You should check out psycho-donuts.com. They have some interesting creations but they’re pissing off a few people who don’t have a sense of humor with some of them.

    Too bad that Tim Horton’s doesn’t have a contest like this. They could use some new selection.

    Frozen Assets reads as a refreshing doughnut. And no, I never thought I’d refer to a doughnut as “refreshing.

    Economic Crunch sounds really good to me. I don’t want marshmellow in my donut. It is just wrong.

    But the best donut to me is the all time classic old fashioned glazed. not the circle one, but the one that looks like a sombrero. mmmmm

    ‘The King’ sounds kick arse, so does the ‘Chocolate Monkey’.

    “Toffee for my coffee” is my ideal, however I doubt I will ever eat one unless I make it myself!!It is way down in the polls=(
