Potato chips. I should think this would be obvious. Just think: Donuts are sweet, potato chips are salty. Also, the shape. Potato chips are flat and they crumble easily, unlike donuts, which are round and fat and very squeezable.

But they are both scrumptious! ^_~

Since I've come to this discussion late (just joined textkit today) I will give my totally different answer to the question of what is the inverse of donut.

Let us first define donut in terms of it's food characteristics.

It is sweet, with lots of carbs. It satisfies the appetite quickly, but has little staying power - within an hour you find yourself needing something more.

So what would it's food inverse be?

not(sweet) = savory
not(carb) = protein/meat

So the inverse of donut would be a solid chunk of roast beef, or maybe a nice T-bone steak.

Yes. 1/donut in terms of nutritional value is whey protein. Which I eat often. But no donuts, thus obeying dem Inversen Theory.

die Theorie für Inversion

Post by installer_swan » Fri Dec 10, 2004 4:56 pm

Recipe for making 1/doughnuts:

To make a 1/doughnut in accordance with die Theorie for inversion you will require:
* 5 litres of molten lava
* 1 doughnut
* Peppermint Sauce
* Salt to taste

Mode of preparation:
1. Take the molten volcanic lava in a volcanic lava can.
2. Put a doughnut into it when molten and stir.
3. Allow mix to cool.
4. The doughnut would have vapourised/burnt/incinerated leaving solidified lava with doughnut-shaped hole.
5. This is required inverse of the doughnut.

6. Serve chilled with peppermin sauce.

The tastetexture is bittercrumbly, exactly the inverse of a doughnut, The shape is as close to 1/doughnut as possible with a finite ammount of ingredients.

So, Voila... 1 doughnut^(-1) is ready.

As I see it, the inverse of a donut is a biscuit within a hole.

...and no one has thought of the possibility of an inverted jelly-filled donut? Think of the topological ramifications of this discussion if one began with a cruller or perhaps the more mundane midwestern bear claw?

All this rubbish about the inverse of doughnut is ridiculous. You are ALL missing the point. In the words of the incredibly deep and philosophically rich Homer Simpson...

Mmm...Doughnuts.....

Thank you. Issue resolved. You may all bow in acquiescence to my superiority.
