Dos, don’ts and donuts

Hurts, doughnut: Dunkin’ Donuts, the very American doughnut chain, has expanding its reach into Europe. Along with doughnuts, Dunkin’s European shops offer a pastrami sandwich on a croissant it calls the Croistrami.

We’re booking a flight now so that we can be in Paris to watch the complete collapse of French culture when Dunkin’ Donuts hangs a banner in its window reading, “Vive le Croistrami.”

Coke choke: Coca-Cola says it will stop using brominated vegetable oil in its soft drinks after bowing to a petition from a Mississippi teenager concerned about the artificial ingredient.

Company officials were continuing to talk with the teen to make sure she was still OK with the shade of red on its labels and if it could still call itself “Coke.”

The dangers of naming pets after food: The owners of a Shih Tzu named Truffle in Cashmere say they believe their dog was picked up by an eagle and carried from its yard. The dog was found 300 feet away with puncture injuries.

The eagle later apologized and said it had mistaken the 7-pound dog for a Croistrami.
