What makes it so great?

This book was inspired by the saying  "the best thing since sliced bread". I was curious if its history supported this bold claim. It very much did. In fact, it was so ridiculous that I was sure if I made up my own details readers wouldn't be able to distinguish the made up from the real.

“Wow, Susan, this cake you baked is the best thing since sliced bread!”


Susan is left wondering

“is my cake only as good as having a plain piece of sliced bread? Why did I put in 3 hours to baking?”
