Stop me if you've heard this one

 Rim shot. 

I tell you I have a million of these jokes (much to the mortification of my children). If I could figure out how to create content and post on Tik Tok, I'm telling you I would be trending. Because dad jokes are all over Tik Tok.

I just wish the people who scour the web for dad joke t-shirts would discover me. I would be rolling in dough right now.

Speaking of dough, I entered a local doughnut shop (Top Pot Doughnuts in Seattle) contest back in October to name their new doughnut holes. 

The prize was free doughnuts and coffee for a year. The catch was, they chose the winner at random, not by whether or not they liked the name you suggested.  I didn't win. But low and behold yesterday they announced the new name of their doughnut holes: Pot Holes.  I didn't even get a thankyou and how's your momma? Pissed me off.

So I comment on their post on Facebook. No response. I post on Twitter X and Instagram (because that is how you entered the contest by posting on social media.

No response. 

I'm really blown away that they would use that name without giving me any credit or even a free doughnut. Now they could come back and say that their ad agency had already come up with the idea before the contest, but why hold a contest and not pick a name from the entries? 

It really shakes my faith in doughnut shops. I'm giving up on the hole business.

Rim shot.
