You just can’t beat the classics.
You can…with a stick.
you spelled “doughnut” wrong…
You just opened up the casket containing the shredded remains of one of the most heated arguments that Tony and I have had.
OH MY GOD ITS WES
I KNOW ITS AWESOME!!!!
In accurate English, it is spelt “doughnut”. However, in American popular usage, it is often shortened to “donut”, especially when referring to a toroidal shape and not the pastry.
Yar. Both are in the dictionary. Both are right. Everyone wins!!
It’s the ghost that borrowed 12 bucks, broke up with the skeleton, and…something else I can’t remember!
Oh, the continuity.
Oops, wrong comment. Whatever.
I think it should just be spelled doughdonuts. Then everyone wins.
But… but the extinction…
Also, hidden comic wins.
No, no. It should be “do(ugh)nut” – THAT is how everyone wins.
Looked it up a few days ago, by coincidence:
Donut wins. Consistently.
Wow… Singapore loves them some donuts!
That just means that, on average, people are stupid, fat, and lazy. And hungry.
I just wonder what happened in 2009 that caused the spike… perhaps this comic? :O
Well, people are lazy spellers. Consistently.
Lmao. Why is pie appearing more and more frequently in the news?
Since it’s a zero made of dough, wouldn’t it have been originally spelled ‘Doughnaught’?
Nope. It got its name because of the “nut of dough” taken out of the center to help it cook all the way through without burning the edges. Also, I said nut.
Aren’t those properly called munchkins?
just the holes are munchkins, and only from Dunkin’ Donuts..brand thingies.
And its spelled both ways. Both are equally acceptable … yes the American English language is so fucked up lol…we have tons of odd language strangeness.
it can go either way.
Like a bi-sexual?
I’m pretty sure you can spell donuts, “doughnuts,” both ways.
I can spell doeknut any way I like. As long as people get the point. Remember, language is to EXPRESS IDEAS FREELY AND EFFECTIVELY. Not be forced to learn so many stupid rules that it takes eight years before they teach us anything useful. People who correct spelling all the time have very little comprehension of abstract thought. People who misspell on a computer are pretty damn lazy not to right click on the word and left click on the correct spelling.

(if we didnt have some rules this is what the English language would be like)
ketchup, catsup, donuts, doughnuts…
mmmm… i love cat soup
But do the owners of the cats like them made into soup?
These ghost comics are amazing 😛
Kind of remind me of Hamlet. Any connections?
The comic is titled hamlet. -.-
Great job yet again, and another lovely secret too.
I really love how Wes and Tony put in small details, like blood slowly increasing frame after frame. Very well drawn as well, I appreciate the style.
We don’t really have a lot of donuts/doughnuts here in “the state of Denmark”.
In Canada we call them TIMBITS (those hole things)
yes indeed they are.
Ummm, Timbits are only timbits at Tim Hortons. Go to Coffee Time and see what’s up.
According to the AP Stylebook, it is correct to spell it “donuts”.
My name is also Echo. Just thought you should know. Name win.
The correct terminology – as coined by me just moments ago – is “Torus Shaped Deep Fried Dough”.
I’m a genius.
The hidden comic is truly how it should have happened.
The question remains why a ghost eats donuts and drinks beer… where hamlet got his drumstick… and why he believes the ghost is now his father after talking to him before his fathers death.
It’s all about the crown!
That’s Hamlet’s “special” brother, Gimlet.
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is always a family tragedy.
Something’s rotten in Denver.
Hey all, they are DONUT HOLES. Obviously. The hole of a donut. Jeeze.
there’s blood on the crown
I always assumed people insisted on the “donut” spelling because that’s the was Homer Simpson spells it, and as we all know, Homer Simpson is one of the top authorities on proper spelling.
