If we had a time machine, we'd use it to find the first person who decided to deep fry dough and then call it a doughnut so we could mouthkiss him. Or her.
But since the origin of the doughnut is actually a thing historians argue, with some saying it dates back to 1847 and others claiming they came before 1847 and that 1847 was just the year they showed up with holes, that'd be a trip the likes of which only Bill and Ted could rival.
So why are we talking about doughnuts? Or donuts, as some like to spell it?
Because June 6 is National Doughnut Day, of course. (OF COURSE.)
True story: I survived an 8 a.m. biology class with a 6-pack of powdered donuts and a Barq's Root Beer for an entire semester. And by "survived" I mean I nursed hangovers.
