Today is the anniversary (there or thereabouts) of the date in 1847 when Hanson Gregory created the doughnut, aka donut.

Thank you, great great uncle Hanson!

Too bad he wasn't very good at mathematics.
If he HAD been, maybe he could have figured out a way that eating a three OUNCE donut would NOT result in gaining an entire POUND of tummy weight!

He didn't invent the doughnut. He invented the hole.
The true genius was whoever figured out that you could inject a doughnut with strawberry jam.

I'm guessing that policemen everywhere are appreciative.

You might not have appreciated him so much if you'd seen how it's done.

When I was a student teacher I accompanied a grade two class to a mass production bakery. A bunch of women surrounded what looked like one of those big buckets that carry cement by crane up a construction site. It held the jam/jelly, while the women held turkey basters. The routine: suck up jam/jelly into the baster, grab a doughnut, squirt the jam/jelly inside, set the doughnut aside. Repeat. Repeat. ...

It was some time before I tried a jelly doughnut again.

As long as the cement bucket and turkey baster are, and have been, only ever used for jam, not some of their other common uses (particularly the turkey baster), I'm ok with that.
