What Donut Are You?


You Are a Powdered Devil’s Food Donut


A total sweetheart on the outside, you love to fool people with your innocent image.
On the inside you’re a little darker, richer, and more complex.
You’re a hedonist who demands more than one pleasure at a time.
Decadent and daring, you test the limits of human indulgence.

(10-17 points) You are MADONNA:

 

You are wild and crazy and you know it. You know how to have fun, but you may take it to extremes. You know what you are doing though, and are much in control of your own life. People don’t always see things your way, but that doesn’t mean that you should do away with your beliefs.  Try to remember that your wild spirit can lead to hurting yourself and others.

 

(18-26 points) You are DORIS DAY:

You are fun, friendly, and popular! You are a real crowd pleaser. You have probably been out on the town your share of times, yet you come home with the values that your mother taught you. Marriage and children are very important to you, but only after you have fun. Don’t let the people you please influence you to stray.

 

(27-34 points) You are DEBBIE REYNOLDS:

 

You are cute, and everyone loves you. You are a best friend that no one takes the chance of losing. You never hurt feelings and seldom have your own feelings hurt. Life is a breeze. You are witty, and calm most of the time. Just keep clear of back stabbers, and you are worry-free.

 

(35-42 points) You are GRACE KELLY:

 

You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all you need to enjoy yourself You are serious about all commitments and are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday, and never forget a Birthday. Don’t let your passion for romance get confused with the real thing.

 

(43-50 points) You are KATHERINE HEPBURN:

 

You are smart, a real thinker. Every situation is approached with a plan. You are very healthy in mind and body. You don’t take crap from anyone. You have only a couple of individuals that you consider ‘real friends’. You teach strong family values. Keep your feet planted in them, but don’t overlook a bad situation when it does happen.

 

(51-60 points) You are ELIZABETH TAYLOR:

 

Everyone is in awe of you.  You know what you want and how to get it.  You have more friends than you know what to do with.  Your word is your bond.  Everyone knows when you say something it is money in the bank.  You attract the opposite sex.  Your intelligence overwhelms most.  Your memory is the next thing to photographic.  Everyone admires you because you are so considerate and lovable.  You know how to enjoy life and treat people right.

 

Now put your Movie Star in the subject line, then forward and share with your friends, including the person who sent it to you
