I had no idea that today is National Donuts Day, would Jenna of (“Our passion, intelligence and commitment are essential ingredients in our clients’ success“) not have sent me a free link to a free donut video.

An agency that “creates targeted content that meets and speaks to audiences where they live — online” should know that people rather have unprotected sex in the bathroom of an NGO that dispenses free needles, than click on a link emailed by a total stranger. But in fulfillment of my newsgathering duty, I clicked. I’m OK (I think), and the video is above.

Allow me to mention that today, free real donuts can be had. Here is where.

    Never let a prospective car buyer from Craigs List go for a solo 'test drive'.

    It occurs to me that with police nationwide scarfing up their free donuts, today would be a good time to rob a bank (not that I'm advocating that!). re: the OTHER kind of donuts, the video leaves out important information, such as tire selection, optimum suspension adjustments/modifications and passenger weight distribution. Also, can drifting be incorporated into the festivities, or must it be pure donuts?

      When you're in uniform, every day is free (or at least half price) donut day at many establishments...

    Weber Shandwick is what used to be known as a PR firm. In fact, it's one of the world's largest. What you're looking at is pure flackery, but fun to watch.
