The Bacon Doughnut Sandwich: The End of Civilization As We Know It?

Companies are constantly trying to out-innovate each other, and starting on June 7, this competition will culminate in the public being able to buy an egg sandwich that uses a doughnut as its bun. Thanks, Dunkin' Donuts! In this brief — yet lively — discussion, our experts ponder the question: An egg sandwich ... on a doughnut?!

What about you, readers? Are you going to try one? Is this doughnut sandwich a boon for mankind, or a sign of the end-of-days? Do you prefer the "doughnut" or "donut" spelling? Tell us in the comment section below! (For what it's worth, BusinessWeek says it "doesn't taste that weird.")

@efithian But where's the artistry in that?!
Dizzy's Donuts in Boulder has a maple iced donut with a couple strips of bacon on top. A much better idea.
I got a toothache AND stomachache just from the picture.
Donuts spelled backward is Stunod (look it up).

@crcomtz: That's amazing. I love how they didn't even bother to split one doughnut into two halves to make a "bun", but instead just used two full doughnuts! Bold choice.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Luther.

Middle column, 5 rows down. My sons' favorite burger to split, and surprisingly tasty. However, my arteries only let me eat there once a month.
If so, the what does a foie gras donut speak of our civilization then?
I don't like my sweets and salts together like that, so I also don't like McGriddles. But I've had a scoop of ice cream inside a donut before. That was delicious
I used to work at Dunkin, and we've been making these sandwiches for employees for years...kind of part of our secret menu until now. Its also super delicious!
I will be on the road this weekend. I am searching for the nearest Dunkin Donuts as I write this. It looks so good!
