Soylent Kreme

The Flea has already covered the liquid doughnut issue but the tag-line for a diztopia post on the same subject is a classic. The report and review from the field is also most satisfying: "Might it be true that man will no longer need solid food?" (via The American Mind).

As a longtime Krispy Kreme enthusiast, I set off to determine if mankind was ready for this evolutionary leap forward. Arriving at KK with trusty Agent L (pictured above, undercover) as backup, I inquired of the dour KK kounter-man, prithee, what is the Frozen Blended Beverage made of? "It's a drink," he answered. Yes, that I got from the poster showing the product as a liquid in a cup, but what's in it? Milk? Is it like a milkshake thing? At this point, his jaw began working mechanically, and he called for his manager. Uh oh.

I am *this* close to breaking into tears. What a heartbreaking story. :(
