    KrispyKreme.
    I don’t know about cocaine, but Krispy Kremes are worse than crack.

    My best friend is obese. He loves to cook at home, and bake cakes and treats. He is a fantastic cook, but clearly has a food addiction.

    We were out on the town today, and we passed by a Krispy Kreme. He literally pulled off into a parking lot going 35-40mph so he could do a U-ey, and pick up a dozen. He pulled the steering wheel so quick that I thought we blew a tire.

    He’s normally a pretty easy-going guy, but this was clearly something bordering on junkie behavior. He could have passed right on by and eaten an apple or orange. Or could he…?
