B!tch on the Street

Days and nights in New York City are tough enough without having to deal with all the sh!t this city dishes up. B!tch on the Street tells the tale of two ladies making their way through this crazy town...one freak at a time.

Hometown Hero...

Michael Vale

It's no longer time to make the donuts! Poor Michael Vale passed away at the ripe age of 83 on Christmas Eve.

This Brooklyn born babe was best known as Fred the Baker in those classic Dunkin' Donuts ads. Who doesn't remember those commercials?!?

For some reason, none of the death notices are mentioning the fact that Michael also played Sam Breakstone on the Breakstone's commercials.

God Bless you Michael! You're a hometown hero because you fill us with nostalgia like a good Brooklyn boy should.

No one ever gets it when I say "Time to make the donuts." And how did I miss that he passed away?!

I'm French and I do not know this guy but all I know about Donuts is that is the most favourite meat of Homer Simpson...Sorry...

To answer to your question, in French we say "Félicitations!"...Bye Bye,
Annabelle
