Cute, but I call fake (I.E. that this isn't some old Monopoly board they found). Let's see if anyone can guess why :)

It's real, and this wasn't the first such occurrence.

Could be real, it just dates it as recent.

Comments from Reddit:

Showed this to my wife, and she reminded me that there’s a whole neighborhood near us, built in the mid-50s,
that has game boards painted or tiled onto their basement floors. Seems to have been a selling point or something.

It was a style for playrooms back in the day.

Who?
Reb Shayala Kerestirer. His yohrtzeit falls on Yom Haatzmaut this year. It's hasidic pop culture to make lavish meals in his honour and traditional Israeli culture to grill on Yom Haatzmaut. @Jokeovermyhead would this fall under your perview? Asking for future reference

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I suspect you’re mistaken. Wouldn’t it all depend on the relative size of the hole compared to the size of the doughnut itself?

If it all depended only on the size of the hole (and not the size of doughnut), then it would be the same % difference between square and round for a massive doughnut or a standard doughnut would be the same, as long as the holes were the same size.

The way I understand it.
Place the square and round donuts on top of each other.
The corners of the square donut stick out further than the round one.
But the hole of the square donut also 'sticks out' further than the hole of the round one, and has more donut missing.
But the outer edge of the donuts are larger than the inner edge by the hole.
So there's more extra donut there (at the outer edge) than is missing (at the inner edge/ hole).
