Quick — name the best breakfast food! If you answered anything other than “donuts,” you’re wrong. Donuts are a fairly remarkable creation. This sweet treat started as just a yeasty pastry with the middle missing, a fried ring of dough. It’s evolved, though. When we were kids, the biggest question might have been whether we wanted chocolate icing or strawberry. Kids today have way more options. Do they want the sweet, sticky croissant hybrid, aka a “cronut” or “doughssant?”

So, yeah, you might say we love donuts a “hole” bunch! And, if you’re here, we’re guessing you do, too. While donuts are obviously scrumptious, it turns out that they’re also pretty silly. Or, well, at least donut fans are. Just like you can find jokes about everything from funny moms to Easter, the joke world is jam-packed (do you see what we did there?) with donut puns and jokes. These are our faves. In fact, the only thing more delicious than these treasures may just be donut puns (or maybe pizza puns, if you’re into savory food.)
