Chapeau du Pain

Filed under Humor      

On Nova’s Science night I found out that humans have about as many genes as nematodes and that corn has way more genes than we do. Corn.  Why corn? We have to do a lot more than corn does on any given day. It’s hard to believe that we are who we are when we’re not much more than simple nematodes with brains. Apparently, there’s only a 3% difference between ourselves and monkeys. Or was it 5%? Either way, it’s quite clear that the basic building blocks of life are shared by a great many of us.  Why a Chapeau du Pain? Because I couldn’t make a hat out of corn bread, it’s too coarse and flaky. Wonderbread however is perfect. You should embiggen this one with a click to see the detail. I actually wore my bread hat to class. See my other artsy-fartsy food here.

    A hat made out of bread? You have a rye sense of humor.

    A bread hat… Did the seagulls follow you everywhere?
    Very funny.
