Redditor buckwheatwaffle says that he or she "was given the ability to control" the pre-programmed footer text that runs at the bottom of the doughnut store’s receipts. “I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughnut," the late comedian’s famous routine starts. "I don’t need a receipt for a doughnut. I’ll just give you the money, you give me the doughnut. End of transaction. We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this.” Despite the meta, anti-receipt sentiment on the receipts, the user reports the joke was a big hit with his or her boss. "It’s not like I work at Dunkin Donuts, friend," the user adds. "This would never fly in a place like that." [Reddit]
