Here’s something peculiar about me: I like bread for the most part, but I generally don’t like toast. Toast as a side with breakfast is a no-go for me. Something about the crunchiness of the bread and the melting butter just doesn’t work for me. Not alone, anyway.

However I do like toast in some situations like hot sandwiches. Then there’s enough flavor to offset the pure toasty toastness that I don’t mind it and even enjoy it.

I’ll stick to bread and butter. Or bread and jam.

Really? I have so many recipes and family traditions involving toast, I could easily weird you out.

Toast is my friend.

That’s odd, Paul.

I’m going to look at you funny the next time we eat breakfast together.

Streetband (lead singer Paul Young, yes the Paul Young) got to number 18 in the UK chart in Nov 1978 with a song called [a little bit of] Toast, thought Paul, or anyone else, might like to have a look at the lyrics. They can be found at the following address:

If you’re wondering yes it’s me back again, been away for a while, oh and I’ve found a number of other Paul McAleers in the meantime.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
