National Dunking Association
At its peak, the association claimed millions of members across more than 300 chapters. Members included famous actors, athletes, political figures, and people of all ages.
Members were encouraged to eat doughnuts using the Official Dunking Rules, a step-by-step method outlined by the organization. The lighthearted rules referred to dunking donuts as a sport and instructed members to break their donuts in half before swishing them rhythmically in coffee, cocoa, tea, or milk.
