What Would Homer Do?

I tried to order a doughnut for breakfast, but the bartender just looked at me confused for a moment. I repeated it and then explained that I didn't know the Spanish word for doughnut but I made the shape of a round thing with my hands and said simply, con chocolate.

Aha! The bartender quickly returned with a small plate and my desired chocolate doughnut. He explained that the word for doughnut in Spanish is doughnut, but it is pronounced with the T silent, as in doe-new.

I'll know better next time.
