Yya kidding me?

It's not even competition unless there's mention of Crumpet.

Sorry chaps, with regard to supremity of KK's (?) sweet dough holes i couldn't agreee *less* - its either 4 for $1 plain donuts from my local family bakery, or 3 for $1 Churros from the street vendor who risks deportation just to make some coin -or- in a real Parisian bistro i quite fancy them high-zoot beignet a la creme's accompanied with a glass of gewurtztraminer or botrytis (when im being taken out for dinner by some lucky chick).

As polite as i can say it - there are three things i wouldn't be caught dead holding; a Krispy Kreme, an L.L. Bean catalogue or a wedding ring. To me they all spell some form of approved bourgeois consumer creeping death/cliche. Iits gotta be cheap and dirty or magnificently lavish and expensive - the same way i like my Crumpet.

Llife is too short to be the same. Art is in the extreme's.

Classic bicycle content: street vendor churros fit great in a jersey pocket and you dont have to get off yer bike and duckwaddle in cleats. I might not have changed the world by buying them but they have saved me on a ride or two.

donuts = dough-buts

Anyway, who's judging this contest?

I may head down just to take the prize with my family recipe for Pavlova. http://www.pastrywiz.com/cakes/pavlova.htm (****)
