The late George Carlin, a comedian and humorist, often examined life’s absurdities.
Take this one for example: “Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It’s just stale bread to begin with.”
Now, that makes sense and his is a point that’s well taken.
But without stale bread, we wouldn’t have bread puddings and stuffing. We also wouldn’t have French toast, which would short-circuit many upcoming Valentine’s Day breakfasts.
