The Nerd in Me, Looking out for Mr. John Venn

So my friend posts this picture via Instagram. There's a place in Portland, OR, called Blue Star Donuts, that sells glazed donuts and fried chicken.

True to my math teacher spirit, my immediate, instinctive reaction was: "I dig it, but this is a misuse of the Venn Diagram. YUMMY should really be the superset of glazed donut and fried chicken. Their intersection should be... well, RIDONCULOUS!"

...I've already come a long way from my nerd roots, I promise. I just didn't want Mr. Venn to be rolling over in his grave. Who has two thumbs and is always looking out for the dead mathematicians?
