As evidence for the claim that America is the “Greatest, Strongest Country in the World,” today is one of at least three holidays dedicated to the donut. The person from About.com who wrote the list of November holidays I used as a source, called November 5th National Donut Day, which is wrong (except in the sense that we should keep National Donut day in our hearts all year round).
The real National Donut Day is in June and its origin honors the work of the Salvation Army more than the donut, which about.com and I would both agree is a real waste of the name. Today is actually Doughnut Appreciation Day, so update your calendars accordingly. I will certainly appreciate donuts today while watching this Good Eats episode, eating a donut and saying the pledge of allegiance.

Blah, blah, blah donutos.
