Working hard to make "yush" a thing again.

In light of some of the other comments, I've been re-examining my opinion on the name and focus change of Dunkin' Donuts. Am I wrong? Is this a savvy attempt to reinvent themselves?

I don't think so. The #1 reason I have gone to, and go to, Dunkin' Donuts is for (A) the donuts and (B) the coffee. If I want to do something nice for a group, I pick up one of their big flat boxes of donuts and one of their big boxes of brewed coffee (Box o' Joe, $14.99 for 10 cups of coffee). If they start acting like they're embarrassed to be associated with donuts, I will gladly take my business to Krispy Kreme (which still includes the word "DOUGHNUTS" in their logo) or some other doughnut franchise competitor, which is sure to emerge once Dunkin' Donuts disappears and is replaced by Dunkin'.

(Dunkin' what? Dunkin' Nothing? Dunkin' Heinz? WTF?)

Sorry, Dunkin' -- try as you might, you're not going to be able to compete with McDonald's or KFC of Chick-fil-A when it comes to fast food. If you're surrendering your hold on the doughnut niche in an attempt to be everything to everyone, good luck.

To me, this move is as foolish as it would be for Starbucks to rebrand itself "Bucks," remove the word "COFFEE" from their logo, and announce they no longer want to be thought of as a coffee shop, but rather as a "quality-and-speed" dining emporium.

It's the kind of tone-deaf, foolish move that only a committee of executives could come up with.

Utterly tone deaf. If they make this change and walk away from the heart of their own business, I see the company going down the toilet in a hurry.

So I'm guessing "Pill Cosby" isn't a typo. :)  Hadn't heard that one before.

holygod That seems about right, actually. Thanks.

I am genuinely puzzled as to what's going on in Trump's mind with this clip. It almost seems as if there's a glint of actual self-awareness going on here. "I guess I was laying it on a little too thick?" Is that what he's thinking?

gohikineko I'll try to view some of these links later in the day when I'm a little less busy.

Just hold onto your submission ideas. Your probation period will be over in just 4 weeks. On October 27, you can submit again. The whole mod team is happy with how well you've been doing. We're all glad you're back.  :)

gohikineko It was a rather crazy Saturday night around here. I'm sure Joe appreciates the well-wishes. I'm hoping Joe and the mod team can work something out so we can keep his account active.

People make mistakes, and his apology below seems sincere. That's a big help.
