On Doughnuts

"I don't even like doughnuts," Nina says. "I mean, I maybe liked doughnuts when I was a kid, but now I think doughnuts are eaten by people who don't know any better. Like, the whole idea of the doughnut is to dumb you down. People, they eat the doughnuts and they can't think straight, and they have to take a nap, you know, and then they can't understand the forces that are working against them, like, they don't even know whether a doughnut is nutritious or anything, because how are you going to find out? The doughnut is a symbol of how people don't have any power, and so the doughnut has to go."
