In 2004, comedian Jim Gaffigan looked into a crystal ball (of jokes) and predicted the future of sandwich artistry. Speaking about fast food and the lack of nutrition information in America in his special Beyond the Pale, Gaffigan joked "A ham sandwich...instead of a bun...let's use two doughnuts. That way we can have it for breakfast."

The audience laughs.

Gaffigan continues, "You guys laugh, but you know there's someone at Dunkin Donuts going, 'That's not a bad idea."

Dunkin Donuts debuted the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich early July 2013.
