    Everybody knows that peanuts are legumes and not nuts. Don’t they?

    A friend told me that British prisoners would soak slices of Ryvita… leave them to dry on the radiator… and the fungus that grew on it was hallucinogenic…

    Insulin was also invented in the 1920s, for those who need to avoid sliced bread.

    Similarly, coconuts are just seeds, and Brazil nuts aren’t nuts either, I’ve been told.

    So was the saying before “The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread”, “The Greatest Thing Since Wrapped Bread”?

    Pre-sliced bread was a very big deal in 1928, I guess. People must have been amazed and saying, “What will they think of next? Technology these days!”

    An old grandma brings the bus driver peanuts every single day.

    At first the bus driver enjoyed the peanuts but after a week of eating them he asked: “Please granny, don’t bring me peanuts anymore. Have them yourself.”.

    The granny answers: “You know, I don’t have teeth anymore. I prefer to just suck the chocolate off around them.”

    A guy and his monkey walk into a bar. The monkey jumps on the counter and gobbles up a bowl of peanuts.

    The bartender asked the guy, “Did you see what your monkey just did?”

    The guy replied, “Yeah, he does that all the time. He’s always hungry. I’ll pay for the peanuts”, and hands the bartender a buck. The bartender clinks a couple of pennies as change onto the counter, which the monkey promptly grabs and swallows.

    The guy said, “Oh he eats random things all the time, too”.

    As if on cue, the monkey jumps onto the pool table and stuffs the cue ball down his throat. Sighing, the man brings out his wallet.

    The next week, the man and his monkey go back to the bar. This time, the monkey sees cherries on the counter. He grabs one and treats it like a suppository, then removes it and eats it.

    Disgusted, the bartender asks the guy, “Did you see what your monkey just did?”

    The guy says, “Yeah, ever since he had to pass that cue ball he ate last time, he’ll be darned if he doesn’t measure everything first”.

    For now.

    Who the heck was the first person to look at an ear of corn like that and say, “I bet that tastes fantastic!”

    During WWII the US Government ordered the cessation of bakeries slicing bread until the end of the war (for some reason – saving energy?) There was such an outrage from housewives that the ban only lasted about six weeks.

    I’m aware of the corn s**t. It has also been called “Mexican Caviar” and is considered a delicacy. However, I’ve not tried it. Ironic that the s**t word is on the banned list and here it is listed on RBION!

    While initially recoiling from the idea of deliberately eating corn fungi, I remembered truffles. A fungus dug up by pigs from down in the muck. It’s famously delicious. So perhaps it’s corn truffles.

    With the passing of the Queen, it got me thinking of my own time still to come.

    I think I’ll be cremated, and my ashes put in a glass urn.

    REMAINS to be seen!!!!

    Peanuts and smutty corn got a lot attention today, but much less attention to bread. So, before the night is gone, let’s see if there’s anything funny about bread.

    Two slices of bread got married.

    The ceremony was going quite well until someone decided to toast the bride and groom.

    Last call.

    A piece of toast walks into a bar, and the bartender starts chatting with him.

    “Where are you from? I haven’t met many pieces of toast.”

    The piece of toast takes a long sip of beer, and says “Well, I was born and bread in New York.”

    Until next time.

    In Nam, we had a bread slicing machine in the mess hall.
