13 Unlucky Ways Bread Kills You

While looking for funny memes for a celiac/gluten-free article, I ran across a ridiculous "bread kills" list on an obscure kinda sketch site. Here's the best of the list for you, to warn you of the ways in which Bread, in fact, Can Kill*.

*even if you don't have celiac or gluten intolerance, in which case, in all seriousness, bread CAN slowly kill you.

1. "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster."


More than 98% of convicted felons are bread users.

2. "Wax on, wax off."


Fully half of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. "Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie."


In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. "Death is just another path; one that we all must take."


Every piece of bread you eat brings you nearer to death. Evidence points to the long-term effects of bread eating: Of all the people born since 1839 who later dined on bread, there has been a 100% mortality rate.

5. "Well, it's not the men in your life that counts...it's the life in your men."


Bread is associated with all the major diseases of the body. For example, nearly all sick people have eaten bread. The effects are obviously cumulative:

6. "Nazis. I hate these guys."


96.9 of all Nazi sympathizers have eaten bread.

7. "By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"


99.7% of the people involved in air and auto accidents ate bread within 6 months preceding the accident.

8. "Bats frighten me."


93.1% of juvenile delinquents came from homes where bread is served frequently.

9. "What sort of gods make rats and plagues and dwarfs?"


Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as a teaspoon of dough can be used to suffocate a lab rat. The average American eats more bread than that in one day!

10. "Let them eat cake."


Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, and osteoporosis.

11. "All things in moderation, including moderation."


Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

12. "He literally doesn't know how to do anything without magic. Just drop it out a window my dude, babies are so fragile."


Newborn babies can choke on bread.

13. "It's just a flesh wound."


Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
