1. time to make the donuts...
Probably one of the more amusing series of commercials that ever ran. The funniest was when he left early and met himself at the door. LOL

I'm glad that the fucks over at carlyle can't exploit him now.

I haven't eaten a duncan donut in years but now under the new ownership, I will make sure, even when desperate, stranded in some one horse town and the only food is their donuts, not to eat one on principle.

2. i use to go there for a coffee on the road
haven't for years, now more than ever I would not frequent that joint. Green Mountain and Starbucks is where I would choose to do business. I try to follow the pattern of buying blue all the time, although it's difficult to find blue at times.
