Doughnuts From the Sky? Oh My!

Doughnuts get the delivery drone treatment in Denver, because... of course they do.

Doughnuts From the Sky? Oh My!

Is there anything more American in the 21st century than having doughnuts delivered to the comfort of your own home by drone?

Unless it's a doughnut delivery drone being forced out of the sky by a bald eagle, then I sure can't think of anything. For that -- gentle readers -- is the latest sign of the irresistable rise of the delivery drone: the airborne wing of the Internet of Things, if you will. (See Amazon Wants Delivery Drones.)

To wit, a drone that delivers glazed treats from above took to the sky Wednesday, in Denver, of all places, piloted by a local doughnut shop. Friday is apparently national doughnut day, so of course, it made perfect sense to do this on a Wednesday.

See this video from the AP for more:

No word yet on how many drones will be needed to swoop in and airlift my morbidly obese frame off the couch after I have subsisted on a steady diet of pizza and doughnuts from the sky for six months.
