Can't Have Yer Pudding if You Don't Eat Yer Meat!

What can be better than the return of Roger Waters to The Bay Area - performing The Wall from start to finish? We can't top that; but we can top some donuts in honor of Chief Psycho's favorite band of all time! Come get 'em only on Roger Waters concert dates - Friday Dec 3, Monday Dec 6, and Wednesday Dec 8. And listen in as Chief Psycho talks to Greg Kihn on KFOX radio 98.5 fm - Monday morning November 29 at 8:45am.

So Ya Thought Ya... Might Like To... Get Some Fried Dough?
...Ok then, the show must go on...

Mother Do You Think They'll Drop the Bomb? Let's hope it's THE BOMB from Psycho Donuts - a chocolate filled bomb, with a Oreo dust detonator. Guaranteed to keep baby cozy and warm! Hush, Psycho's gonna help build a Wall (cue guitar solo).

I have become Comfortably Numb. And one of our do
nuts has too! Comfortably Numb is the quintessential rock star donut suffering from a breakdown. He's wearing a powdered sugar straitjacket and is filled with chocolate. Hurry and get one before they're a distant shipsmoke on the horizon.

Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fears, I sentence you to eat a donut that's weird! Our Judge donut bears quite a resemblance to the original, don't you think? The Judge donut will be
in very short supply; the picture may be as close as you'll get to this mean worm of a donut!

Tear Down the Wall! All alone or in twos, our donuts really love you. Our Wall donut is a symbolic wall of vanilla icing and chocolate brick mortar, filled with raspberry jelly. You'll love banging your head against this mad donut wall.

Scream! There's no dark sarcasm in this donut shop! Come check our donuts inspired by Roger Water's visit to The Bay Area! All in all it's just another donut about The Wall...

Get your Wall donuts before The Wall show (on 12/3, 12/6, and 12/8 only) at Psycho Donuts Campbell or San Jose - and be sure to catch the legendary performance of Roger Waters in the coming week!

Holidays are Making us Crazy!

Holiday stress making you crazy already? Come get a Crazy Good holiday donut and spend some time decompressing in the Psycho Padded Cell! If there was ever a time to go Psycho, it's during the holidays!

At Psycho Donuts, we celebrate 'Misgiving' instead of Thanksgiving. And we have some Pserious Misgivings for you! Let's kick it off with The
Punkin' Spice Latte! Wanna make your own? Here's how: fill it up with spiced pumpkin, and top it with a coffee and cinnamon icing.

What holiday dinner is complete without sweet potatoes, or in this case, The
Sweet Potato Donut. This crazed concoction is a raised donut topped with torched marshmallows (torched as in 'welding torch'), graham crackers, and a pumpkin spice filling.

For dessert how about some Punkin' Pie? Our
Punkin' Pie Donut has a pumpkin filling, and is topped with maple icing and crushed graham crackers. Looking to jazz it up a bit? Ask the Nurse on Duty for a shot of whipped cream!

And there ya have it - except one very important thing. One of the best parts of the holiday is all the leftov
er concoctions. Turkey soup, turkey casserole and turkey sandwiches. We donut want you to miss out, so we are pleased to bring you The Thanksgiving Leftover Psandwich. The Mayflower may have been motivated to arrive sooner if this donut were waiting on the Plymouth Shores. It's a raised sesame-seed donut bun, filled with cranberry sauce, pumpkin spice, cake donut stuffing, maple icing, and turkey bacon. It's like a Thanksgiving Everlasting Gobstopper!

Thanksgiving will soon give way to Hanukkah. And this year, we are pleased to bring
Sufganiyot to those who rock around the Hanukkah bush. Is it kosher? Get real... but it sure looks and tastes good. Serve it to your kosher friends - they'll never know any different! To your left is a picture of our traditional Sufganiyot. Stay tuned for details as we finalize our 'Psycho Psufganiyot' option as well. Sufganiyot is available via online advance purchase only. Order yours today!

Tell your calendar that Psycho Campbell will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Psycho San Jose will be open on Thanksgiving Day for movie concessions only.

On Black Friday, kick off your shopping insanity with a stop at Psycho Donuts, where you can pick up our 2011 Psycho Nurse Calendar for only $9.95, a Black Friday pspecial (regularly $13). It comes with over $66 in coupons. The smart ones gift the calendar but keep the coupons!

Psycho Beer Psmoothies and Christmas Art Event

Psycho San Jose is manically operational and running psmoothly. And speaking of all things psmooth, we are giddy to announce our new Psycho Beer Psmoothie! What did you expect from us, a wine spritzer?!

The Psycho Beer Psmoothie combines beer, several members from the diverse lime family, and a few other crazy ingredients. The result is a
surprisingly smooth, almost-tropical taste that will psurprise you. Come try a Psycho Beer Psmoothie - only at Psycho San Jose!

Crazy things are happening at Psycho Campbell too! As the holiday season winds up, Psycho Donuts is insanely happy to announce our annual Christmas art event:

Have Yourself a Crazy Little Christmas!

Sunday, December 12; 10am - 2pm

Come check out original off-beat artwork for sale from super-talented local artists like Christine Benjamin, Deborah Barba, Carlos Villez, John Hageman, Sheri DeBow, Kurtis Rykovich, Lacey Bryant, Laura Collin Bennett, Michael Foley, Michelle Waters, Nicolas Caesar, and Christian Cinder - to name more than a few!

The art event coincides with our launch of Psycho Christmas Donut Series - Year 2. You'll see donuts from Psycho Christmas Past - who remembers Jingle Balls? What about Grandma's Revenge? You'll also meet some donuts from Psycho Christmas Future, who will make their crazy debut at the event.

And bring your crazy singing voice - because Bruce Rogers of Korkaoke will lead us through our favorite psychtivity - karaoke in the padded cell. Come join the fun at Psycho Donuts Campbell for Have Yourself a Crazy Little Christmas - Sunday, December 12, from 10am - 2pm.

The rumors are true. On Saturday night, The Flying Karamazov Brothers performed at the San Jose Rep. But what world renowned juggling act is complete without the obligatory juggling of a Dozen Psycho Donuts. While the Chief Psycho wasn't there to witness the spectacle, eyewitnesses report a box of Psycho Donuts exploding in mid-air. Kids, don't try this at home - but if you do, clean up before your parents find out!

And finally, our own Nurse Sholley was in an accident this weekend. We look forward to Sholley's imminent return to the Psycho Nursing Rounds soon, and a psuper pspeedy recovery!

A Hunka Hunka Donut Love

The suspicious minds at Psycho Donuts are all shook up to bring you this week's hunka hunka donut love -- THE DEAD ELVIS! Elvis fans know that The King's favorite sandwich contained crispy bacon, bananas, peanut butter and jelly. This sandwich has been replicated at cafes around the country. We've even seen The Elvis in ice cream form. So why not donutize Elvis?

The DEAD ELVIS is custard on the inside and glaze on the outside. It's topped with Elvis' favorite concoctions -- crispy bacon, bananas, peanut butter and jelly! Come get one this week at Psycho Donuts in Campbell and San J

A big thanks to our Nurse Models, artists, and fans who joined us Friday night for the Psycho Nurse Calendar Launch Event. Along with a constant flow of bloodied zombies (from the Campbell Zombie Crawl), the event was crazy fun. A big thanks to Marc Arsenault of WowCool for creating the calendar, the launch event, and the marketing elements behind this year's most unusual gift item! Pick up your Psycho Nurse Calendar at Psycho Donuts, or buy one

Finally - donut miss this week's cult movie - ZARDOZ - at Psycho San Jose and Camera 3. Grab a crazy donut and watch an insane movie this Thursday night at 9pm. Go back in time and watch a young Sean Connery take control of a post-apocolyptic future. Get your tickets from Camera 3! Zardoz has spoken!

Psycho Calendar Makes Weird News

Monica Garske has the insanely fun job of writing the "Weird" column for AOL. Whenever Psycho Donuts is 'strangely interesting' enough to intrigue the writer of a Weird column, it puts a smile on the Chief Psycho's face. And The 2011 Psycho Nurse 13-Month Calendar inspired Monica to write a Psycho Pstory! I guess that a 2011 calendar inspired by crazy antics of Psycho donut nurses, paranoid pastries, and demented original artwork is enough to attract the weird news. Big thanks to Monica for the article, and to Marc Arsenault of WowCool - creator of the Calendar.

The Psycho Calendar Launch Event!
Friday Nov 5, 7 - 9pm
Psycho Campbell and Psycho San Jose
If you're thinking about intriguing and unusual gifts for your friends this coming holiday season, the Psycho Calendar is a mandatory expenditure! This Friday night, November 5 - come to our Psycho Calendar Launch Event, from 7 - 9pm, at Psycho Campbell and Psycho San Jose. You'll pick up a calendar for only $9.99 (regularly $13), and you'll also receive a free donut with your purchase - not to mention over $66 worth of Psycho coupons inside the calendar! Have your calendar autographed by one of our Psycho Nurse models or artists! It might be worth $13.50 someday on Ebay! Or maybe it'll just be the coolest calendar you ever bought. And if you're not local but still want a Psycho Calendar, pick one up online!

If you're in San Jose this Friday night, check out the amazing artwalk that is South First Fridays! Psycho San Jose is giddy to be the newest member of South First Fridays. Stop by and check out the crazy artwork at Psycho San Jose this Friday night, November 5.
