Here in southeastern Michigan it is Paczki/ Day! The press accounts
say: "But paczki (pronounced POONCH-key) are no ordinary Polish  

They're hulking softball-sized slabs of deep-fried dough filled with
jelly or custard, not to mention 420 calories and 25 grams of fat." >>>

Lol. I'd never heard of these paczki before, but I saw some packages  
of lemon or strawberry filled ones in my local grocery store when I  
was in there today and bought a package. We don't have much (any?)  
Polish community here. To me they looked very similar to the jelly  
filled donuts I sometimes do see here. They were softball size, but  
more donut shaped than spherical.

So, what are "ordinary Polish pastries", if these aren't them?
