It was "Powdered Donut Thursday" with Gainesville Mayor, Ed Braddy, and the donut shop was out of powdered donuts. In an effort to stay in good standings with the mayor, the donut shop offered donut holes as a replacement. Ok, that worked. The donut shop lady said 8 donut holes was the same as a donut. The Wart Hog Command Post Research Team did look into this and found that 4 donut holes was roughly the same as 1 donut. So 8 donut holes would be closer to 2 donuts. The mayor solved the problem, he ate all of them!
