It's doughnut. Not donut.

It's kind of fun when my workday includes me needing to look up (for legitimate business reasons) the proper spelling of doughnut according to AP Style.

I'm a little surprised at AP, actually. It usually favors shorter spellings. And usually, if Rob's instinct is to do A, then AP tells me to do B instead (I'm more of a Chicago Style boy myself). This time, AP and I are in sync.

And I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that that won't happen again soon.
