Donuts and Jews

The great Fred McDowell posted this on Facebook and asked for a Jewish version. Over 350 examples were provided. As you might expect, most were quite bad, but some were rather good.


Some of the better ones: 

Hillel: Ess, bubbeleh. The rest is commentary.

Yeshayahu Liebowitz: One should not enjoy his donut on Chanukah, also there was no Chanukah, but one eats a donut because it is commanded.

Mordechai Breuer: It appears that there are many different brands of donuts, but there's really one baker making all of them.

GSUFYO: "does anyone know if Conservative Jews eat donuts? Just asking.
update: I didn't mean to offend."

RSR Hirsch:  the word donut is derived from the aramaic דו and the English "not", thus symbolizing the refusal of the Jewish people to accept anything but monotheism.

Reb Shlomo: Let me tell you a deep gevaldige story about Duvid'l the donut..

David Rosenthal Why Cronuts are not Donuts

R Eliyahu Fink Why a donut? Because it's so nice to eat on the beach, and appreciate God's goodness in giving us beaches and donuts.

Dov Bear: The donut recipe in Braishis Rabba is actually a poor rip-off from a Greek recipe for English Muffins.

Here are my contributions

Avi Shafran: Sure, those anti donut bloggers would have you believe donuts are unhealthy but really they are more nutritious than kale

Pruzansky: Most of the time, when a donut gets eaten, it's the donut's own fault for going out wearing sprinkles and frosting

: Women who eat donuts aren't doing it because they are hungry. They're doing it because they want to destroy yidishkite

Gordimer: I find my donuts less tasty if I think that someone, somewhere is eating one in a newfangled way.
