True Story about Free Doughnuts!

Here's the story: (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Doughnut_Day)

"Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. The holiday celebrates the doughnut — an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Although the day typically involves the celebration of doughnuts, due to the common misconception of being unhealthy, many celebrate the National Doughnut and Bagel Day. National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army "Lassies" of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers behind the front lines in France."

Free Doughnuts! In reverence and honor of this day, Krispy Kreme is giving out free doughnuts, no purchase necessary. Dunkin Doughnuts will give out free doughnuts with the purchase of any beverage. Nice. Since there are about 25 DD's within walking distance of us, I think I may have something to do on Friday. Plus, since this occasion was started here in Chicago, I kind of feel obligated to celebrate.

As a side note, as I was doing my research for this post, I found the gift for Brady's upcoming birthday, The Simpsons Doughnut Maker.
