When Pretzels Attack

Not that I take pity on the pain of others, but… well… this made me laugh. It’s not nice. I know it’s not. But I laughed. Out loud. A lot.

Do you think the pretzel was a terrorist? Or a terrorist infiltrated a bag of Rold Golds and inserted this evil pretzel?

After all, pretzels are an American favorite, having probably arrived on the Mayflower back in 1620. Today, pretzels are the second most popular snack behind potato chips. You can buy them online, or use them as teaching tools. Truly, over the past 400 years pretzels have proven that they aren’t bad. They aren’t evil.

All of this negative hubbub over pretzels is unnecessary. Eat a pretzel today – they’re a tasty treat, and deserve your attention. Just remember to chew the things! -pm
