Somebody’s Gotta Make the Doughnuts

“Making Heads or Tails of Idioms” Newsletter. Volume 1. Issue 5. Part 1 of 2.

Original Release: 12/20/2010

**Special Edition** Pop Culture Idioms

What was said?  “Well, somebody’s gotta make the doughnuts around here”

Did someone really say that? YES!

Doughnuts: Kari Steinberg texted me saying that it was used three times in her meeting. Then a week later, the partner on my project said it.

What does it mean?

“Somebody’s gotta make the doughnuts” means somebody’s gotta do the work. Originally, I thought it meant that making doughnuts is a difficult, laborious process, but no… I was wrong.

Origin:

Somebody’s Gotta make the Doughnuts: Fred the Baker in a Dunkin Donuts commercial from 1983 woke up saying “time to make the doughnuts” while he was getting ready to go to work to “make the doughnuts.”
