What would you do for a Krispy Kreme?

Those of you who have had Krispy Kreme donuts before might agree that they are sooooo good. Well how good are they? A clearly non-detail oriented employee for NBC 26 seems to be oblivious to just HOW good the graphic he chose for a Krispy Kreme story says they are. This happened a couple years ago, but like NBC’s old Thursday night line up, if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you. Check out the screen shot and look closely…..
Clearly this employee was asked to find an image of the Krispy Kreme logo. A quick Google Image search for “Krispy Kreme” currently brings up this same graphic, sans the “suck dick” comment on the first page of results. On the current second page of results is this similar looking Krispy Kreme image from a site called noheat.com. My guess is back when the graphics guy pulled this together for the story it was on the first page, and he/she was oblivious to the fact that this version of the graphic contained the offensive phrase. Whoops.

    Honestly, Krispy Kremes are good, but they’re not the confectionery crack that everyone proclaims.

    I’d rather have In N Out Burger.

    weird, this is a few years old, but I’m seeing it around the net again.

    we should coin a term for that. like “net reverb” or something cooler then that.

    @tiki god: Deja-pic? Nah. Re-net? Nope. Ummm…Pre-netted? Definitely not. Hmmm, this is harder than I thought.

    I got it: “repost”!

    @TGGeko:
    but it’s not a repost to internet-d.

    I know : zombie topic. something that comes back from the dead and is all smelly.
