I was partying hard the other night at Susie’s birthday. One of her friends brought these awesome doughnuts from Dough in Bed-Stuy. I couldn’t stop eating them. I liked the Raspberry ones particularly. Then Jody was like, “Dude, raspberry flavoring comes from Beaver anus glands!” I didn’t believe him, but then he showed me all these links on his phone. It’s true. It’s even confirmed on Snopes.com.

I was wondering why don’t they just use real raspberries? It seems like it would be a lot easier.

Well, I’m pretty sure (or at least hoping) that these doughnuts used the real thing. Anyway, I kept eating them.

    Wow! Who would’ve ever thought that a substance derived from beaver anal glands (castoreum) would be cheaper than raspberries? Moreover, who in the hell first ate a beaver’s castor sac? Did that person perhaps yell “Délicieux!”

    And here I was thinking it was weird that imitation vanilla is made from pine tree bark. How naive of me.

    How many beavers are there? Even on snopes this seems hard to believe. Can I just add one more thing… Save the Beavers!

    I always wondered how Jerry Mathers made a living after his TV show ended. It must be hard for him to sit down.
