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

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

    @simpsonfan2

    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.

    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.

    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.

    One of the few things my father and I have in common is that we prefer the heels over the rest of the loaf. There were many times that my mother would find a half a loaf of bread jumbled in the bag because one of us had dumped it out to get at the heel. She often yelled at the wrong person.
