People like the Casual hero who sent this in apparently wait on line at the Dominique Ansel bakery in NYC for like two hours for one of these things. Not sure why, but the chances of me doing the same when I'm up there next week are close to 100%:
Described by many as a half croissant, half doughnut - this pastry hybrid by Chef Dominique Ansel is taking the world by storm. After its launch on May 10, 2013, CronutTM fans spanned the world from Berlin to Singapore, making it the most viral dessert item to date.
In March it was the loss to Florida Gulf Coast.
In June it was the season-ending torn ACL of Greg Whittington.
In July, it was the bewildering and gut wrenching exile of Georgetown's proud bulldog mascot.
But now the calendar has mercifully flipped to August, and it's clear we need Document Your Lunch more than ever. Indeed, the long wait for lunch documentation enthusiasts to once again proudly document lunches is finally over! Welcome back everyone, to Document Your Lunch.
What exactly is Document Your Lunch? It's pretty simple, really. All you need to do is answer the following question in beautiful, luscious and supple documentation:
This year, with so many different social media options available we are going to kick this sucker into OVERDRIVE. We'll be documenting on twitter (@casualhoya), documenting on instagram (@casualhoya), and of course, thanks to SB Nation's wonderful design decision to give me as much as five story slots to fill on the main page with glorious pictures of documented lunch, we'll be documenting in abundance right here on your favorite cuddly Georgetown Hoyas website, THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON.
Use the damn hashtag #documentyourlunch along with your pic and brief description. Your lunch will be shown to the masses and we'll make you famous and cool with AUTOMATIC RETWEETS to our abundance of loyal followers so you can impress chicks (and/or dudes).
This is the greatest daily feature in the history of the world wide web.
