    I’ll say it’s a bad omen, alright.

    What has Achilles got to do with the loaf of bread?

    The ends of a loaf of bread are called the “heels.”

    Why didn’t he say heels then. I wouldn’t have taken anything away from the comic.

    Because then, instead, you’d have commenters asking what was meant by “heels”. Sometimes you just gotta go with your instincts.

    Achilles is well-heeled.
    (Is one of those kids Patroclus? Achilles’ … ahem… companion?)

    I’m surprised that the sandwiches don’t have little spears holding them together….Oh yeah, that would be another omen….

    Says a lot about the state of education in today’s society. When I was a kid, kids fought to GET the heels; now they don’t know what they are. Guess Mom cut off too many crusts.

    But the heels have the best amount of nutritious crust.

    Loaves, heels, Achilles. It’s all Greek to me.

    Is that Helen of Tray?

    @jreckard
    Helen of Troy’s was the face that launched a thousand ships. That face could easily wreck a a few dozen.

    He should have cut in line sooner.
