The World’s Gone (Dough)nuts

I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I enjoy a good doughnut.  Whether it be the plain old, sugar covered variety or one with toffee icing and custard in the middle (one of my personal favourites), they are a very pleasant treat.

However, no matter how good any doughnut or other cake tastes, nothing could persuade me to queue for three hours as has been the case recently, with the opening of the first Krispy Kreme in Scotland.

If ever evidence was needed that many people now act more like sheep than human beings, this was it.  A bit of hype and the world suddenly becomes obsessed with doughnuts.  I wonder how long these ‘fans’ would have waited at their local bakers or supermarket for exactly the same product.  In fact, I would be willing to bet that some of those standing in line don’t even care for doughnuts at all, but instead wanted to be one of the crowd.

I’m not sure why this story annoyed me so much, perhaps it’s just that I find it frustrating when people have no minds of their own.
