Which Way to the Donuts?

samzenpus posted more than 6 years ago

Idle 8

It's early evening. You've just finished a large double cheese, pepperoni and sausage pizza and washed it down with a 2 liter of Mountain Dew. The tingling in your arm a reminder that it will take much more than an astounding 10,000 calorie dump to defeat your body and fuel it through the next 5 hours of Warcraft raiding. Too full of sauce, spiced meats and sugar to move, you manage to turn your head and look at the meager half bag of Doritos, in your clogged heart of hearts you know that this is not enough. You need more. You need donuts. How are you going to find them? Call someone? Don't be ridiculous you haven't talked to a real person in months. Search for donuts on Google? Do you have any idea how many hits you'd get? (actually you do, it's around 13,300,000.) Tired, frustrated and not completely stuffed you let the dream of donuts slip through your greasy fingers once again. We've all been there but now there is a solution. Someone has finally made a Krispy Kreme finder with a clock that determines if the store is open. Simply type in your zip code, rub on some sun block to protect your pale skin, put on pants and follow the directions.

I just tried it. I discovered that, completely blowing my mind, StarBucks is available about 60 miles closer than I thought it was, and Krispie Kreme is totally out of my reach.

I feel so healthy right now (1)

kris.montpetit (1265946) | more than 6 years ago | (#22995258)

and someone like me should never be allowed to feel healthy or wholesome...no i mean it.

This is a Google maps app? (1)

ReverendLoki (663861) | more than 6 years ago | (#23007052)

So, really, this page takes whatever zip code you enter, then does a Google Maps search for the keywords "krispie kreme" and the zip code. Congrats.

Oh yeah, there's a clock, too.

This will never work for me... (1)

My self and the rest of the Ninj4's here were a bit disapointed to find the search "krispie kreme" didn't lead us to our traditional Friday afternoon indulgence (KK have just opened down the road from the office and we're already begining to wadddle with the added pounds).
