    The reason I brought this up is because the alternative spelling of donuts suggests DOUGH- NUTS, not really a nice thought, so everyone, use the proper spelling of donuts! ( donuts)

    Commence the flood of British hatred.

    Even the text box here suggests donut is a spelling mistake (gets the red squiggly line). :-)

    OK fine I won't say doughnut. I will spell it instead, like this DOUGHNUT.
    See, easy.
    Now let me ring up the Queen once more to let her know her proper English is an abomination and should be banished from the entire planet. She can also take back flavour, colour, centre, etc. etc. and blah blah blah.
    :wink:
    Cheers!

    Can't really figure what's going on here. Seemed appropriate.

    LMAO. Whenever I'm saying something facetiously American, like something gluttonous or discriminitory I always say "THIS IS AMERRIKUH!" Which I hope people read in a thick backwoods southern accent.

    You'll find that doughnut is the correct spelling, as well as the original spelling, predating the incorrect donut spelling by decades in any printed records.

    I also think the fact that they are made from dough lends a clue to the origin of the word.

    Donut has less letters and requires less typing. Therefore I'll spell it that way. They're both fine choices though, whatever floats your boat. 'Merka!

    Too many characters, that is why it has been shortened. A bit like leaving off all those extra 'u's (colour and the like). Think of all the time saved :)

    I always read Amurika, Amerikuh, or 'Merika in a backwoods south accent. It just makes sense. It's how people talk here... I have one of those wretched southern accents. :'(
