Not sure what this means exactly…
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American’s sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies — just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet “free” can be.
Freedom of choice? These guys are trying to clarify the matter. I hope it’s just a poor, er, choice of words. I like Krispy Kreme doughnuts and would not enjoy boycotting them.
Tanya adds: I foresee in the very near future a carefully worded public statement on behalf of Krispy Kreme to clarify all of this (as they chasten their marketing department for not catching this double meaning faux pas).
In the meantime, Miami News Times is featuring this opinion:
File this under “Overreactionary Wing Nuts” and another attempt of conservatives to redefine words for their political means (You can try to rewrite the Constitution, but not the dictionary). Of course, the “overreactionary libtard” counter to this is that conservatives want to demonize all choice from America until we’re living under a fundamentalist dictatorship. A fundamentalist dictatorship without doughnuts.”
Perhaps some haven’t yet heard of FOCA.
Andrea adds: I’ve been “boycotting” Krispy Kreme since they came out. (I never liked them!) So this should be relatively easy for me.
Tanya updates, Monday: Here’s the carefully worded public statement.by
