ST. PAUL, MN—After mentioning the deep-fat-fried pastry in conversation and drawing a blank stare, local man Greg Weinberg proceeded to explain crullers to his friend Jeffrey Tomlinson, sources confirmed Monday. “It’s sort of like a donut, but braided,” said Weinberg, who went on to describe the dessert as “basically a bunch of dough all twisted together.” “They’re good. You should try one.” At press time, Tomlinson had reportedly tried a cruller.
