Today, writers outside the U.S. still favor doughnut by a wide margin.

But aren't they the same writers who continue to misspell center (centre), color (colour), theater (theatre)? I should take their word, why?  :grin: :grin: :grin:

Don't forget words like neighbourhood, favourites, honour, valour, and travelled. Plus, it's "zed" not "zee", and it's said "left-ten-net" even though we write "lieutenant".

But we draw the line at "tyres" and "gaol". 'Cause that's just weird. Although there's a Gaol Road just outside of Winnipeg (leading to the Headingly  Correctional Centre).

I have never met a Canadian I didn't like, but y'all write funny. :P
