This is in response to all the f'n Krispy Kreme obsessed people out there.


Yes, Krispy Kreme donuts are good. They are yummy and sweet! And you know what?
Get over it already!

This whole Krispy Kraze is sort of like that movie "The Stuff" (which I never actually watched) where this mysterious ice cream goo starts eating people's brains, and they become crazed and won't eat anything else.
Which, in turn, is a lot like the whole Starbucks phenomenon. Starbucks coffee really isn't very good at all. In fact, I have never liked it, even back in the day when it was just a few stands in Seattle. But SUDDENLY(!) the world needed espresso, and they needed it NOW! Starbucks was from Seattle, and Seattle is the coffee hub, so people thought they were being chic by drinking Starbucks. It could have just as easily been Seattle's Best Coffee (which tastes better than Starbucks anyhow), but somehow Starbucks got lucky and all the SUV driving soccer moms made it their beverage of choice. Now everyone who carries one of those green and silver mugs thinks they are drinking something special and wonderful.
I guess the point of this rant is:
Do things because you LIKE them, not because someone else tells you to like it.
If you like Krispy Kreme and Starbucks, go ahead and get some. But for God's sake don't do it just so you can have their napkins in your cubicle.
