Today's Review: Bread

Bread. Who ever thought of bread? A genius, that's who. Where would we be without bread today? Well, we might still be in the same place, but we wouldn't have bread, and that would be sad. The best thing about bread is that it's so versatile, and it comes in so many forms. You've got your standard loaves, your sour dough, your baguettes, croissants, pitta, naan, you can stretch that dough into whatever shape and consistency you want, and it's almost invariably awesome and nutritious.

I don't know how much bread I've consumed in my life, but it sure is a lot. I went to Disneyland several months ago, and I am still curious about how many bread rolls they get through in their breakfast buffet.  Bread is everywhere, and it's easy to produce, so it isn't going away anytime soon. From its humble beginnings being assembled on rocks to the moment the Earl of Sandwich slapped some meat in the middle, bread has been with us, making us strong, and healthy, and giving us chest hairs as long as we eat the crusts.

There's a reason people say "the best thing since sliced bread". They can't say "the best thing since bread" because it's not possible.

My rating: 5/5
