An ugly job, but it’s a living

O Krispy Kreme

(Sung To the tune of “O Tannenbaum”)

O Krispy Kreme, O Krispy Kreme
You’re lovely and enticing
O Krispy Kreme, O Krispy Kreme
How beautiful your icing
My palate you do satiate
I’ll order three…No make that eight!
O Krispy Kreme, O Krispy Kreme

 You’re lovely and enticing.*

Police, chase and donuts – How could I resist?

  2. Lovely tune.

    I’m in Houston. Krispy Kreme spent about five years here then split. How I miss the sweet caloric packed doughy, frosted orbs that fit so well in my human mouths.

    Aside from that, have a wonderful Christmas and and a terrific New Year. It’s my most sincere wish that we ALL find peace of mind in 2008.

    It’s been fun getting to know you and your blog in recent weeks. Here’s to more creativity in the months ahead.

    Merry Christmas!!

  3. kyknoord – glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks LK. Krispy Kremes were too good though. Or, as Bobby Bouchet’s momma said, “dat Krispy Kreme is the devil!

    When I was working with the narcs, once we left the office in the morning the whole crew would be scattered across the city working on different cases. On the times we needed to come together and work as a team we would pick an easy to find location. I noticed that my crew, all former college athletes, had a fondness for places like Krispy Kreme. By the time I showed up they were all busy at the trough, scarfing down “doughy, frosted orbs.” The problem with eating like you’re in training while not actually working out is that the logical result is a fat ex-athlete.

    I’m not particularly fond of donuts, so I didn’t partake, but within 6 months the boys started to look like a pack of porkers.

    One day they were bemoaning the fact that they needed to lose weight. They were completely mystified by their weight gain. When I pointed out their frequent Krispy Kreme “meetings” they begrudgingly agreed that eating 4,000 extra calories every other day might be the cause of their problems. They had to form a support group to keep themselves away from the Krispy Krack.
