Death Be Not Deep Fried

Posted by on December 29 at 6:12 AM

The “time to make the donuts” guy from the Dunkin’ Donuts commercials dies—of diabetes. Okay, he was 87 and was going to die of something sooner or later, but the cause of his death seems oddly appropriate.

Did these commercials not run in Seattle? This guy is all over the news and I can't for the life of me ever recall seeing these commercials. And I watched A LOT of tv in the 80s and 90s.

The commercials ran everywhere I ever lived. For years I would say "time to make the donuts" when I sat down to write Savage Love. Ah, memories.

You should've said:

"That'sa spicy meatball!"

It reminds me of when Dave Thomas of Wendy's died of a heart attack. And it's rumored that the dizziness that led to Dr. Atkins' slip, fall and subsequent death may have been a byproduct of a carb deficiency :P
