These Characters Live Every Day Like It’s National Donut Day

It’s the first Friday of June, which means it’s National Donut Day! You’re probably thinking: Oh, America… is there anything your wonderful, gluttonous country won’t celebrate? The answer is: No. But hey, let’s not waste time wondering why national food holidays are a thing. Let’s just eat said thing.

To celebrate, here are eight fictional characters who embody the spirit of National Donut Day, every day.

Helena – Orphan Black

helena-donuts

Kicking off the list is our favorite foodie clone, Helena. Her love for powdered cake donuts is so real, so pure; it can be described in just three words. She’s a simple clone with simple needs.

Aoi Miyamori – Shirobako

donuts-shirobako

Aoi Miyamori is a bubbly production assistant who loves two things: beer and DonKin Donuts. She and her friends make a pact in high school to stay BFFs forever and form a ring of donuts while cherry blossoms (of course) rain down from the ceiling.

Mindy Lahiri – The Mindy Project

mindy-donuts

Donuts can be the cure to many things: heartache, hunger, boredom, etc. Nobody knows this more than Dr. Mindy Lahiri, who longs for the healing properties of a donut after a really good cry.

Agent Dale Cooper – Twin Peaks

Special Agent Dale Cooper does not shy away from stereotypes. He calls the spread above “a policeman’s dream,” though a veritable feast of donuts stacked in pairs could be a dream come true for anyone.

Patrick Star – Spongebob Squarepants

Let’s be real. At some point today, we will be Patrick Star shame-eating a jelly donut.

Homer Simpson – The Simpsons

This list would not be complete if we didn’t include Homer Jay Simpson. If you’ve ever wanted to make those infamous Kwik-E-Mart donuts, check out this recipe for pink sprinkled donuts on the Donut Wiki.

The Entire Cast – Orange is the New Black

OITNB-donuts

The look of pure bliss as Chapman bites into a chocolate donut says it all.

Liz Lemon – 30 Rock

Ah, yes. The queen of emotional eating asks the hard-hitting questions when it comes to donuts. Mainly: 1. What time do they get thrown out? And, 2. Have you ever microwaved one?
