You wouldn't believe what it's glazed with.
I seriously did think up the Lunch Doughnut™ recently. I found myself thinking about "breakfast burritos", and why you don't often see other foods crossing the line between meals. I decided that the doughnut was the perfect food to modify for other use, since it's -- if nothing else -- one-handed and portable. I then came to the realization that a bagel is practically a lunch doughnut, and so the difference would have to be in topping and/or filling of the pastry. It was at the moment that I began to consider filling doughnuts with mayonnaise that my brain simply stopped and refused to think any further on the subject. Much like a burro being urged to cross a raging river filled with ravenous robotic sharks and politicians, it stopped and shot that look that says, "I wish I had one or more middle fingers to display at this very moment." I'm actually lucky that I wasn't allowed to go so far as to think about putting tartar sauce or wasabi in a doughnut, or I would have suffered an aneurysm so massive that it could probably be felt as far away as Canada.
Also, "doughnut" or "donut"? Is there a difference? Is it anything like "naked" and "nekkid"? Inquiring minds want to know.
I'd like to point out that RAoK is now being linked to by one of my favorite webcomics, Movie Punks. If you haven't seen it before, do yourself a favor and visit. I promise, it's several orders of magnitude better than that other movie-oriented comic strip.
In closing, I would like to say that if today's strip were four panels long, we probably would have been able to see that doughnut land right in Arlo's mouth. I'm not trying to tease you with such an enticing could-have-been. I'm just sayin'.
