Duggars Plunder Local Kripsy Kreme, What a Bunch of Takers

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/09/duggars-hammered-for-plundering-free-krispy-kreme-donut-give-away/
snip:
The Duggar family inspired ire this week for snagging no less than 168 donuts during a giveaway at Krispy Kreme, Inquisitr reports.

The family apparently went to the donut chain for their “Talk Like a Pirate Day” promotion, where anyone who said something like “Arr matey” got a free donut. Customers who went the extra step of dressing up got a dozen donuts. It’s possible Krispy Kremes wasn’t expecting 14 Duggars to show up in full pirate gear, but they all got a box of donuts that it seems unlikely they’ll be able to eat.

The Duggar family crest is now at Jolly Roger jamming a donut in his mouth.

Jim Bob has been a real estate investor for a very long time. Even if TLC asked for all the money they paid the Duggars back, they'd still be doing okay.

26. Mom and Dad Duggar approve.

Should have tried this remedy on the kids a few years sooner.

Too Much Sugar Kills Your Sex Life

"High levels of sugar in your bloodstream can turn off the gene that controls your sex hormones.

The simple sugars, glucose and fructose, are metabolized in your liver, with the excess stored as fat lipids. Excess fat synthesis deactivates your SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) gene, causing your levels of SHBG protein to drop dramatically, and it is this SHBG protein that controls your testosterone and estrogen levels...

30. Unless they want to open their own church, they probably need the calories, money's tight

and the kids will be eating stale donuts for breakfast for at least the next week, and there's nothing staler than a Krispy Kreme donut 24 hours after it's left the store.

34. Tempest in a teapot.

They met the requirements of the promotion - they are entitled to the donuts.

If Krispy Kremes was willing to give 12 donuts to a single person (more than that one person would be likely to eat), it seems pretty silly to get bent out of shape 14 people each claim 12 donuts. That they all live in one house is pretty irrelevant - unless the rules limited the offer to one per household.

37. Why is it any more greedy for 14 Duggars to take advanatage of the offer,

Than for any other 14 individuals to take advantage of it?

Each person, regardless of whether that person is a Duggar or not, sought more donuts than they can reasonably anticipate eating = and I don't hear any complaints, or see news articles complaining, about the greed of any of the other participants in the promotion.

The difference between 14 individuals and 14 members of one family.

42. In each case, 14 people each get a dozen donuts.

And I expect the Duggars were not the only family in which more than one person took advantage of the offer.

If lots of donuts going to one family is an issue, you limit the offer one to a household. This offer was apparently not limited in that manner, so the criticism is stupid.

Plenty of reasons for people to dislike the Duggars, this one is stupid. KK was planning to give away a lot of donuts and they did. Some of them were to people in the same family. I don't see the issue here at all.
