Mmmm… Doughnut…

We need more CEOs like this.

‘We’re a sweet treat company, [and] if folks don’t want to visit a doughnut shop, they don’t have to,’ Tattersfield said.

    I love this tweet:

    “Unbelievable that Krispy Kreme is forcing vaccinated people at gunpoint to eat a donut every day for the rest of 2021. Why is no one tweeting about this?”

  3. Mar

    From the article: “Last year, Krispy Kreme also gave away a dozen glazed doughnuts to the country’s healthcare workers when the pandemic first began to rage. ”

    That’s not very impressive.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    Well, it is certainly more impressive than whatever the anti-vaccers are doing, or the terrible advice on HCQ, or whatever nonsense Ron Johnson say about coronavirus….

  5. Mar

    And another troll post from Troll Boy.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    How so, mar? What makes my comments “trolling”, yet yours aren’t? And no, you have never answered that question.

  7. Mar

    And another troll post from Troll Boy.
    I have answered that question several times. You just don’t like the answer or cannot comprehend the answer or more likely, just playing a game.but I am not going to play your game, Troll Boy.
    But if you want me to answer, stop being a troll, which you have admitted to.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    CEO does something good and you take time to rip Ron Johnson.


  9. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again,k. I was commenting on the unimpressive comment by mar, and used several examples. Pay attention little fella.

    Your Biden-like mumbling of total irrelevancies is becoming a huge problem.

    Might want to get medication for that.

    Well Le Roi, since you ask, let’s look into this question on this post. Mar quoted a line from the article and made a comment that was, based on many earlier posts, what I would describe as an enjoyable line of sarcasm. It could have other meanings, but it was a comment pertaining to a quoted line from the linked article.

    Your comment was an insult towards different groups, with no supporting evidence, no relevance to the article and looks like it was simply attacking conservative groups and individuals with no purpose of any positive sort. Later it was described by you as merely trying to insult Mar for his comment. So the other insults were unintentional?

    Definition of an online troll:
    “In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts flame wars or intentionally upsets people on the Internet. This is typically done by posting inflammatory and digressive,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog), with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion. This is typically for the troll’s amusement, or to achieve a specific result such as disrupting a rival’s online activities or manipulating a political process.”

    Seems like your comment fits the definition and Mar’s doesn’t. Do you see it differently here? Can you tell us how Mar’s is trollish while yours is in any way not trolling? If you can’t, then consider your question answered. Unless it is directed at you, someone he seems to have written off, Mar’s commentary is usually on point and deserving of some thought. Yours are pretty universally negative attacks on conservatives and conservative positions, and many times unrelated to the original post at all. You only seem to get anything from this blog when you are trading insults with Mar or Kevin. Rarely have you engaged in any thoughtful discussions or actually come back and defended commentary that actually answers you. Care to give it a try now?

    If I were Mike Tattersfield, I would have responded to the critics by changing the offer from 1 to 2 free donuts. Fucking let them complain like bitches (or Leroys).
