Psycho Donuts in Northern California says it's going to celebrate National Donut Day in the style of "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" this Friday with donut holes filled with foie gras mousse.

According to ABC, the crazy donut shop will thumb its nose at the law on the food holiday.

The donut shop will no doubt be getting threatening letters from PETA, which has been hot on the heels of establishments like this is not a pop-up and The Broadway for their serving of the fattened goose/duck livers.

Foie gras was banned in California nearly a year ago, and it's a crime to serve it in restaurants. Some chefs have attempted to skirt the ban by offering it as a gifted item as cooks in Chicago did during their brief moment of banning the livers. But PETA is not having it.

Everyone who's been threatened by PETA's lawyers has given in, which leaves us wondering if these Psycho Donuts people really are crazy enough to go through with it. Considering they make a strawberry margarita donut, they just might be dumb enough to do it.
