Earlier today, beloved NYC website Gothamist published a photo from Flickr that showed a pair of Google Glass, the most buzzed about gadget of all time, sitting atop a Cronut, the most buzzed about pastry-thingy of all time.

“You should be able to watch porn on your Google Glass, just don’t jerk off on the subway.” James Deen — porn star, actor, Voice of Reason — is right.
