The case of the Double Ds

DoDos? DODOS?! What are you, retahded?

I grew up in Massachusetts, have eaten more Dunkin’ Donuts than any healthy human being ought to, and even worked the morning shift at Boston’s Kenmore Square location during my college years (highlights included serving a cruller to former Mayor Kevin White and a cup of black coffee to J. Geils’ frontman Peter Wolf, while the lowlights included my paycheck) and have never, ever heard the term DoDos [“Going Cuckoo over DoDos,” The Biz, Nov. 27].

D’n’Ds, Double Ds, or even Drunkin’ Blonuts are all common and acceptable terms of endearment for the beloved chain, but DoDos?

NoNo.

    Hey, the original auther was just embellishing his work a little to add some color … You are right, NOBODY calls the place Do Do’s unless you are from somewhere else and don’t know better.

  2. Who cares. It’s a friggin donut. Get a life. What is everyone’s obsession with donuts. Get a stinking life. I hate you all. Get a life.

    Q: What was the television show that starred Chris Elliot on FOX called?

    A: Get a life.

    jason, why do you care to trash people so much over what you’ll admit is nothing? you’ve done it so much now, it’s like the boy who cried wolf.

  4. I’m not crying wolf, I’m crying “Take a look at the world around you and find something better to get impassioned about than donuts.”

    There’s a subtle difference. The wolf wasn’t actually there, much like these people’s lives.

    hey jason,

    you are soooo right, even though your words are rather harsh. honey draws more flies than vinegar – like a dunkin douts honey dew doughnut!

    keep up your rants, they are great – a lewis black in the making?
