1[jokingly wondering why Tim Horton's created a Jason Priestley doughnut and not one for her character, "Robin Scherbatsky"] I was just pissed off that [he] got his own frickin' doughnut. And I was like, "Well, where's the 'Robin Sparkles'?" They could put some little sparkles on top. It's kind of a bummer. Pitch it, guys. Pitch it.
