Doughnuts not donuts

I'm disappointed to see that Mr Clark of Life, Explained has disparaged this fine blog, suggesting that it is only fit for use as fish and chip wrapping, whilst the shortcomings of his American blog are obvious.  Allow me to illuminate you.

For example, in his latest blog he uses the word "airplane", which as we all know should be "aeroplane".  Worst of course is the use of "donut" as opposed to "doughnut" - the item is made out of dough, hence doughnut. Donut sounds like an instruction to be violent.

Nevertheless, I'm sure that Tim's blog would be good enough - just about - to wrap a hot dog in, with sauce and onions of course.

I can only summarise that Tim is sadly suffering from the Dunning-Kruger effect.  Thoughts are with you, Tim.

  1. Ouch, Mike insults my knowledge of DONUTS. In the words of the great American Bugs Bunny, 'Of course you know, this means war." Not in the violent, physical sense, just the trading of vile bilge (a nautical term, since I am a kayaker now).

    1. Bring it on Tim, bring it on.

      PS kayaking looks really cool, I can't swim so have naturally avoided watery sports but I do like the look of kayaking :)

  2. You guys need a referee or mediator? I do like the way the UK spells humour or favourite. How about some yoghurt,Tim?

  3. Bravo, Mike...I do hate the way ALL those Americans such as Grammarly, Microsoft Word, Facebook and Google, keep telling me I can't spell. I have managed to reset and override them all to allow me to keep our superior language!
