So Peter, how's that search for a "good dentist in San Francisco" going?

7 is bad. 9 is worse. That's what happened to me on the 405 between between Sherman Oaks and Culver City one day this winter.

I think it's time to call I wonder if any mortal can do double digits within a ten minute period (faster than 1 doughnut/min).

Peter, your intestinal tract continues to amaze us all.

I'm disturbed by the fact that all of the donuts look exactly alike. You're not eating plastic donuts, are you?

Sweet Jebus! You, sir, sound like a candidate for Donut Rally. But, then again, those were just Krispy Kremes. Strawberry donuts are in season down here. Nyah, nyah, nyah.

Seven donuts a day is the core of the Krispy Kreme diet plan. The plan also incorporates an exercise regime revolving around an overstuffed papasan and 48 episodes of M*A*S*H. I lost over 75 pounds.

Gosh! What was I thinking. The olympic symbol is (5) donuts.

How can I implement this feature of adding comments in my blog???

Double digits within 10 minutes? Easy my friend. Let's come up with some difficult, yet obtainable rules for a Krispy Kreme challenge and we'll go for it.
