Will Get Around To It

Our donut shop has several versions of our bismark with different fillings and frostings. A woman comes in and stands staring at the case for several minutes.

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “Um… yeah. What are these?”

The customer points vaguely at one end of the case.

Me: “You mean the bismarcks? We have cherry, lemon, Bavarian cream—”

Customer: *Interrupting* “No, like, what are they?”

Me: “Well, like I said, we have various fillings—”

Customer: *Cutting in again* “No, like… what do they mean?!”

Me: “‘Bismark’ is German for ‘round.’”

Customer: “Oh! Well, that makes perfect sense, then. I’ll take two of the lemon ones.”
