The Fauxnut Strikes!

21 Oct

When we were in San Francisco there was a souvenir store at Pier 39 that sold magnets. James was mesmerized by the magnets that looked like realistic donuts.

They were some ridiculous price like $13 but he was so intrigued by them that we couldn’t not buy one – and then we spent like 5 minutes picking out the most realistic looking donut.

We called it a fauxnut (well I called it that and James marvelled at my cleverness). He kept it wrapped carefully in its packaging until someone brought donuts into work. FYI it’s the one in the middle.

And finally the fauxnut paid dividends. Two! Two people tried to cut into it with a knife!

It even looks realistic on the inside.

But anyway, having fulfilled its $13 gag the fauxnut now lives on the work fridge. I told James he should try again – maybe disguise the fauxnut with a cunning mustache.

As gags go it was fairly lame, but sometimes I think about the fauxnut and I just laugh and laugh.

    Funny! 😉 Great foresight! I bet his team will be double checking the donuts next time to make sure the Fauxnut doesn’t strike again.

      I would be soooo thrilled if he deployed the fauxnut again! Fingers crossed. =D
