More etymology! Well…kinda.

The word “Doughnut” is American English first recorded in 1809. Doughboy for U.S. soldier was in use during the Mexican-American War in 1847, said to be from resemblance of buttons on old uniforms to biscuits of that name.

I think “Donut” is simply another form of “Doughnut”, probably created by someone “simple” after hearing the word.

Look for a “Doughnut” feature on my web site soon!

if they were just made of air, you wouldn’t be able to see them or touch them. they would be gaseous, not a solid. you cannot defy the laws of science.

listen people! it is DONUT not doughnut. this is as clear as day. just because buttons and dough exist from the 1800’s doesn’t mean we must do the same sh!t. we are progressive people, living in our modern donut era… now the rest of you… GET OVER IT.
