Scientists have just announced a laser treatment that removes pigmentation from eyes, leaving them with the underlying blue color.

I don't know why they used a laser, unless it was because donuts are a health hazard.

The use of donuts for the purpose dates back to at least 1977, as documented by Crystal Gayle's songwriter:
"Donut make my brown eyes blue"

It's the American spelling.

And, like so many of the Americanised spellings, the more logical one. Just not as pretty.

Although, for doughnut/donut, it's not like there's a misleading pronunciation in the original version, and doughnut is somewhat more descriptive (the etymology is actually believed to be that it's from "nuts" of dough making what we now call doughnut holes).

I'd argue that given the 11 or so different pronunciations of 'ought' in the English language whittling it down to a syllable with only two saves some confusion so you don't end up saying doonuts or duffnuts or, God save us, dupnuts.

Granted, US English simplifies some of those more insane pronunciations with the bulldozer approach (of either pronouncing it like it's spelled, or spelling it like it's pronounced) especially as you go further west.

And, "donut" could easily be parsed and pronounced as "do nut" by someone unfamiliar with the term (granted, it'll be a child or a non-native speaker that'd do that), whereas "doughnut" will in US English always be parsed and pronounced as "dough nut".

Doughnuts and donuts are used interchangeably around these parts.

I suspect it's because of Dunkin Donuts, personally.

In other news, there is talk that Metamucil brands may be teaming up with Dunkin Donuts for a new all-natural fiber "donut".

The chain is considering the partnership because they think there have been too many negative connotations for its slogan, "America Runs on Dunkin'."
