Early this morning Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard tweeted out a peculiar picture a dozen doughnuts along with a preciously placed issue of the Examiner, headlined “Gangs find profits in teen sex trade.”
“Ah, the Leesburg Dunkin manager’s special in the corner won’t last long,” Bedard wrote. He clarified for FBDC that the “Dunkin manager’s special” is the chocolate, sprinkled one.
Bedard said he gets in to the Examiner‘s office early to prepare for radio hits. On Mondays he brings doughnuts for him and his coworkers, which he affectionately refers to as his “posse.”
As for the newspaper placed on the box, Bedard says “I pose and post the photo to announce that it’s donut time in the newsroom.”
To be sure, Bedard’s photograph did not go unnoticed. DC Dunkin’ Donuts tweeted at him: “Tx for keeping the Monday #traDDition alive! BTW: We need to create you a DD Cuppy Bobblehead for the collection.”
Bedard’s something of a bobblehead expert. The background image on his Twitter profile is a bunch of bobblehead dolls.
