[edit] Tenbread

In the Stinkoman game, do you have to collect ten 'tenbread', or just one 'tenbread'? Lor 06:02, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

'Tenbread' means ten pieces of bread. Due to the poor translation, it got mashed into one word. --DorianGray

[edit] Bread and Butter Pickle

Should the Bread and Butter Pickle song be added? Retromaniac 19:11, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, probably. Bluebry 19:13, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Neglected Bread

Hey Guys, what about the breadtangle of pizza and all the other related geometric breads from TGS? I would add it myself, but I don't have the time. Would somebody else add this please?!

[edit] Why come this article?

How has no one ever thought this article to be totally Spoons-y? Does anyone go through a day without seeing any type of bread? Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:31, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

The point of the Spoons page (which, I remind everyone, is a guideline, not policy) is not that we can't have articles about everyday objects. It's more that we shouldn't make running gag articles about everyday objects used in everyday ways. Note that bread is used in several not-so-everyday ways (sing-alongs, for example), making it worth an article. Heimstern Läufer 22:39, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Yes. Bread is a good time for everybody. Loafing 22:41, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Not to mention it's a featured article. — It's dot com 22:52, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Generic? What the Pfargtl?

Why is this but a generic food/drink? It seems like a gag that runs, to me. --Jellote 20:27, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

I guess it's because there isn't a specific brand of bread that appears the most frequently. BBG 20:38, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
I know. It's just that what I'm getting at is that this is a gag. It could stille be generic, but also a gag, right? I think this is a Food or Drink Running Gag. --Jellote 21:07, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
What's the gag, exactly? Running gags are usually pretty specific. If all there is is "bread was mentioned", then that's not enough for a running gag. — It's dot com 20:53, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Keyword: usually. If used in bizzarre ways (post its, sing alongs, similies, DELETED attempts, ect.) then there's the gag for you.--User:Jellote 21:00, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Where do we draw the line?

Last night, I added Strong Bad's mention of hushpuppies to the list. It was reverted on the claim that it isn't bread. Then it was reverted a second time suggesting that pizza, corn dogs, and the like would fall under the category of bread. The difference there is that while pizza, corn dogs, and hot dogs certainly contain bread, the bread is not the finished product. It is the finished product for hushpuppies and cornbread (and, incidentally, croutons, which were mentioned as well, but they have never made an appearance on H*R.com). Cake was mentioned too, but it already has a page, so we wouldn't need to add any of those instances regardless of the decision. So where do we draw the line on what is and isn't bread?

I agree that bread should be about bread purely and not bread by-products that may contain it in some form (like pizza or corn dogs). Also, hushpuppies are technically balls of cornbread since they're mostly cornmeal just fried, so they could be considered bread products because of that. - Catjaz63 06:00, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
My definition of bread tends to be "can you make a sandwich out of it?" Hushpuppies, to me, are more similar to fries or onion rings than they are to a hamgurger bun. I also wouldn't consider soft pretzels to be bread, even though all they are is bread dough and salt. — Defender1031Talk  10:35, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
