Original Release: 12/20/2010
**Special Edition** Pop Culture Idioms
What was said? “Well, somebody’s gotta make the doughnuts around here”
Did someone really say that? YES!
Doughnuts: Kari Steinberg texted me saying that it was used three times in her meeting. Then a week later, the partner on my project said it.
What does it mean?
“Somebody’s gotta make the doughnuts” means somebody’s gotta do the work. Originally, I thought it meant that making doughnuts is a difficult, laborious process, but no… I was wrong.
Somebody’s Gotta make the Doughnuts: Fred the Baker in a Dunkin Donuts commercial from 1983 woke up saying “time to make the doughnuts” while he was getting ready to go to work to “make the doughnuts.”
