Is it a donut without a hole?

In an ad for the "Limited Edition" "Simpsons" movie soundtrack on the left, the photo suggests the CD case is a donut with a hole in the middle, doesn't it? I bought one. I was disappointed the designer did not come up with a way to make a hole in the donut.

A hole would have made this CD case 100 percent better.

And to make matters worse, the CD just a bunch of standard movie music by Hans Zimmer. Hans has never struck me as a guy with a sense of humor or a sense of playfulness. Some of his perfectly serviceable scores include: "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Batman Begins," "Da Vinci Code," "The Last Samurai," and "Madagascar."

Yes, I know comedy music doesn't have to be funny music.

I guess Danny Elfman (composer of the "Simpsons" theme) and Alf Clausen ("Simpsons" TV show music) were busy. Our loss.
