It's perfectly Holsum.

White bread probably isn't bad for you provided you make it your self with only flour, water, yeast and a pinch of salt and no additives.  Whole wheat would be better but nothing inherently wrong with white bread.

Wonder bread is closer to a lab experiment than it is to bread.

Good-for-you or not, it tastes terrible compared to whole-grain breads.

Wonder bread is to heavy for me.  I prefer cotton candy and a rolling pin.

When I was a kid, I was under the impression that there were two kinds of bread: Wonder and Colonial. I usually got Wonder with my Velveeta.

We used to mash slices of it flat and use a shot glass to press out communion wafers. With the side benefit of making eye holes that were far better shaped than those made by folding the bread and taking a small bite at the crease.

A really fresh warm baguette with salted butter is one of the best things you can put in your mouth.

There are only two levels of alcoholism: treatable and Catholic.

It's an acceptable foodlike object. It's a processed food, which we're supposed to revile, but for those of us who can't afford to eat at our society's upper/foodie/smug food hipster tier, it represents a handy way to pick up the peanut butter without it sticking to our fingers.

You should read the article.

Of course those who hate on the upper food tier probably don't believe in gut bacteria anyways. Bacteria, like humans, are furnaces or something I expect.

In a pilot study, a Spanish research team from the University of Oviedo in Spain concluded that the defamed staple encourages the growth of bacteria that actually protect against disease rather than causing it.

Yeah I don't believe it.

So an executive from Coke calls up his friend, a Cardinal of the Church, and says "Your Eminence, Coca-Cola is prepared to donate $1 billion to the Catholic Church if only you replace the phrase 'daily bread' in the Lord's Prayer with 'daily soda'."

The Cardinal immediately replies "of course not! To even suggest it is blasphemy!"

A few days pass, and the Coke executive calls up the Cardinal again: "Your Eminence, I spoke with the CEO, and we're willing to up our offer to $5 billion if only you replace 'daily bread' with 'daily Coke'."

The Cardinal replies again "absolutely not! This is impossible!"

Weeks go by. The Coke executive then calls the Cardinal again: "Your Eminence, I've spoken with the CEO and after much convincing, he's agreed to up the offer to $10 billion."

The Cardinal replies "My son, we cannot do this, but if it will make you feel better, I will talk to the Pope."

The Cardinal then goes to the Pope. "Your Holiness," he says, "I have good news and bad news."

"The good news is, someone is offering to donate $10 billion to the Church."

"The bad news is, we might lose the Wonder Bread account."
