Wikipedia: Doughnut
A doughnut or donut (IPA: /doʊnət/) is a type of leavened fried dough. It is popular in many countries and is prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty vendors. ‘Doughnut’ is the traditional spelling, whilst ‘donut’ is the simplified version. Both terms are often used interchangeably in the English-language.

Wikipedia: Bagel
A bagel (Yiddish: בײגל‎ beygl; Polish: bajgiel), also historically spelled beigel, is a bread product originating in the Jewish communities of Poland. It is traditionally shaped by hand into the form of a ring from yeasted wheat dough, roughly hand-sized, that is first boiled for a short time in water and then baked. The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior.

Are bagels breakfast donuts? Or are donuts just dessert bagels? Either way I’ll be fat soon enough.

Donuts are not simply ‘dessert bagels’.
It is disgraceful to demote ourselves to the level of donuts. While they sit there with frosted delicacies smothered with various toppings, we maintain our balance of sophistication. The flavorful tastes of something as idyllic as butter to combinations between hot sauce and cucumbers cannot be rivaled when spread between the halves of whole-grain wheat. You disgust me with your talk of such fattening filth.
