Donut-upon-Avon

February 3rd, 2010

This donut was grown on the banks of the Upper Avon, and is popularly known as Shakespeare’s Donut. First described by Washington Irving, it was later the inspiration for the plan of the Globe Theater. Not coincidentally, a globe’s outer surface may be described by the transverse rotation of a sideways donut. However, this is not recommended.
