How toast got the Vote

Korean foodstuffs try so bloody hard to express themselves, it's only a matter of time before they get universal suffrage.

It started with poetry on a lassi. Today I read this baffling missive on my bread bag:

"It kneads a dough with the boiling water high temperature and hour from low temperature

and maturing 56 a natural taste deeply and it saves with chewy it is soft there is the recording wall hundred which it will chew it does and a possibility of feeling simultaneously with the bread, the flavor taste is a possibility of seeing and it is a bread."

Finally, the world is awakening to the feelings of the staple foods. Though decades behind in animal rights, Korea seems to be paving the way for this new kind of compassion.

Let us recall the plea for understanding from the bread-lender Ryelock in one of Shakespeare's lesser known works, The Matza of Venice:

"If you prick us, do we not knead?"

If clogging the tubes with puns is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
