national donut day donut quotes funny memes

Are you hungry yet?

If it weren't obvious already, today is the official Nation Donut Day. Yes, there's a national holiday in celebration of America's sweetest treat that no one knows how to spell (is it donut? Doughnut? Technically it's both, believe it or not.)

Who cares — as long as it's in your belly, amirite?! 

According to the Smithsonian Magazine, doughnuts came to be a few different ways, but the gist of it goes like this: a mother from the mid-19th century wanted to provide pastries that wouldn't spoil so easily for her son's long shipping voyages through New England's waterways. She "put hazelnuts or walnuts in the center, where the dough might not cook through, and in a literal-minded way called them doughnuts," writes David A. Taylor. 

Then, of course, her son took all the credit for the maybe-even-more famous donut hole. Taylor explains,

"Using the top of a round tin pepper box, [Captain Gregory] cut into the middle of a doughnut "the first doughnut hole ever seen by mortal eyes.

And the rest was history.
