Open Heart Surgery Assembly Line

krispy kreme doughnuts assembly line

Well, I visited for the first time one of the crowning glories of American Culture, Krispy Kreme.  I was fascinated by an assembly line that Henry Ford would have been proud of, capable of taking flour and oil and churning out 2600 delicious globs of sugar and fat per hour.  Staring after line after line of doughnuts emerged from their oil and sugar bath, it suddenly came to me:  this isn’t an assembly line for doughnuts, it’s an assembly line for open heart surgery patients!  And each little doughnut became in my mind a gurney being wheeled into a surgical suite to have its chest split open.  Just a little cheery thought to start your week from your friendly neighborhood blogging physician.
