    @RamFan503 and I have a bet that we need the membership to weigh in on, and ultimately decide who's right about this particular subject.

    Donuts with lemon (filling or jelly) inside.
    What are they called, and what do they contain?


    My position (ehem, the CORRECT one) is that lemon- FILLED- donuts don't contain any jelly at all. It's simply a glucose concoction that tastes like lemon that's pumped into the donuts. As such, it's MY position (again, the correct one) that those donuts are called LEMON FILLED donuts. Stu would have you believe they're called LEMON JELLY donuts <scoff>

    (*disclaimer: they're awesome. this is not a complaint about the donut itself)

    To further solidify my case to you excellent and unbiased ROD members (and you look great by the way, and I'm not just saying that), I present you with the ingredients AND NAME of the donut in question from one of the largest producers of donuts in our Country. Dunking M#!%#&F#*!)#* Donuts.

    Thank you for your participation in this poll, and thanks in advance for making me the winner. By the way, have you lost weight? Because, really, you look freakin' awesome today and I don't throw around compliments so haphazardly. Got some sun today too, it looks like. Nice.

    Peace out

    well basically lemon JELLY is just , as you mentioned a lemon glucose concoction, as is the lemon FILLING that you speak so highly of.

    going to have to run to Dunkin, Tim Hortons and Bess Eaton and do a comparison test.. I will post my vote later

    (Stu, you still have my shipping address to send me my free T shirt?)

    Yeah, but your vote counts. And not just because you're an awesome poster who I respect very, very, very, very much.
    Is that a new shirt? Looks great on you. Makes you look buff.

    It's not quite jelly, and not quite custard. Can we agree on LEMON GLOP?

    P.S. Boston Cream are the donut uberlords!!!

    Lemon glop qualifies as lemon filling. As long as it's not jelly. ;)

    Changing the rules as you go again - eh Paulie?

    Is anyone else around here concerned about the inherent repression going on when someone who clearly has the ability and status to run rough shod over others by moving the goal posts to suit his need to be right? It's bad enough that I have proven him wrong before on this very subject. Apparently his only recourse is to co-opt every opinion that is not exactly that of the position taken on by someone who has the unmitigated gall to disagree with him. Shouldn't we all rise up against this repressive posturing? I mean we've all seen his heavy handed techniques around here when someone simply disagrees with him. It should be beneath him in his position. Clearly he lacks the compassion necessary to see other points of view.

    It's pretty easy to prove that I'm right actually. All you have to do is Google it and you will find that the only difference between a berry jelly donut and a lemon jelly donut is the FACT that one is berry and one is lemon. In fact there are people who make pilgrimages to donut shops for their "Lemon Jelly Filled donuts".

    I have to run a bunch of errands right now but when I do, I will demonstrate the vast amount of evidence supporting my case. As very intelligent and astute voters, I would urge you all to hold your vote until the evidence against this wannabe dictator can be presented so that you can make the clear decision as always.

    What I will present to you is that X is all wet in his assertions and his complete prejudice against people who love Lemon Jelly Filled donuts. In the mean time, I know you won't be tricked by the lowly tactics of my opponent. Unlike Paul, I realize you are far more intelligent and logical than he is making you out to be. We are not sheep. Hell no! This elitist mentality cannot stand.

    Warmest regards,

    Your humble servant and provider of tasty treats and beers with special discounts for all ROD members,

    Stu

    Don't see your vote. And don't worry. I will take care of my friends and the rank and file members when I win this vote. ROD members must rise up and set this right.

    My thing is, if you go out looking for lemon jelly to put on toast(for example), you're not going to get that stuff they put into the donuts. Right?

    Exactly.

    Jelly donuts have grape jelly (which is real jelly). Lemon FILLED donuts have lemon FILLING.

    Game.

    Set.

    Match.

    My fellow RODericans,

    I will not stoop to the level of mud slinging my opponent is waging with these attack ads, as I feel that would be a waste of your precious time. And let's face it; you're only interested in the facts. So let's get right to it. Fact: It is I, X, who has worked tirelessly on your behalf for YEARS to rid this fine establishment of the very presence of this attacking style of communication, and for your benefit. Fact: I'm a servant of the people! Look around you. Your Rams paradise is ripe with optimism, and this is in no small part to my dedication to you. Fact: My 4 year term brought you the deportation of tens of trolls via swift and decisive actions. And now I'm expected to endure attack ads for my efforts? To quote a great American with whom many of us can identify, "this aggression will not stand, man."

    If my opponent feels as though my "lowly tactics" are somehow lined with ulterior motives, he couldn't be more wrong. I only want to do what's right. As I have done for years while in your humble service. To that end, I simply cannot sit idly by and watch one of our Country's most delicious donuts get falsely labeled. Tradition is important, and it cannot be tossed aside <pounds fist on podium> TOSSED ASIDE I SAY, at the whim of someone who once saw an independent hippy donut shop in Topeka Kansas lazily throw the word "jelly" on a lemon filled donut for nothing more than a tidy profit. YEARS have been spent perfecting the smooth consistency of lemon filling. It's as steeped in tradition as pop rocks and Charleston Chews. Now we should just change the name for the sake of change?

    Change? Well, I say, "No We Can't!"

    Lemon filled donuts must remain as is our forefathers intended. With preservatives and artificial sweeteners. For if we change the name of that to "Jelly", then what's to stop these jelly activists from changing the name of peanut butter to Peanut margarine!? No. I say, stop the madness here and take a stand! Stand up for lemon filled donuts, and stand up for your Country!

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Yours in servidude,

    -X-

    You are very astute in your observations. That's what makes you and the rest of the ROD members such perfect judges. Have you ever tried getting the same jelly they put in the berry ones for your toast? And yet - they are still called jelly filled. We are simply talking about a different type of jelly. A jelly that wouldn't typically be put on toast, lemon or otherwise. If you were to inject normal jelly into a warm donut, you would end up with juice - not that sort of jelly like substance found in Jelly Donuts. The only way to fix that problem was to make a different kind of jelly.

    I will go into it in subsequent posts but like I said, that is a very sharp pick up. Brilliant I might say. If only Paul could work his brain around the nuances. Obviously, he is either being coy or really doesn't understand. I'll leave that for y'all to judge as well.
