Today’s award goes to the members of the Missouri state legislature who sponsored and/or support this proposed bill.
A bill pending in the state House would designate July 7 as Missouri Sliced Bread Day. Supporters say the day is needed to promote tourism in the northern Missouri city of Chillicothe, where the first commercially sliced bread was sold on July 7, 1928.

“Sliced Bread Day”??? Really??? What’s next – “Disposable Diaper Day”? “Breakfast Cereal Day”? “Pre-Toasted Coffee Beans Day” (in honor of the Arbuckle brothers, of course)?
Why can’t politicians stick to what’s important, instead of wasting time on fripperies, frivolities and gewgaws?
