Store Owner Claims He Invented Sliced Bread

TORONTO, ON- In a published interview in 'The FigLeafLet', president of Fantasy In Glass, Mikey See claims that he invented the concept of sliced bread. "It's a little known fact that several months ago when I was toiling in the back room of FIG's stained glass studio working on the quintessential teddy bear night light, I succumbed to a compelling urge to do something different with my lunchtime break. Tired of having to open my mouth to the extreme to accomodate a full double rye loaf, I developed a mechanical device that slices an entire loaf of bread without polluting the atmosphere nor contributing to global warming. Though I'm a modest person I take full credit for this invention," said Mikey. A spokesperson for the National Bread Association scoffed at Mr. Figgy's assertion. "Frankly there were many people who made major contributions toward the development of sliced bread and Mr. Figgy is not one of them."
"This is just another one of his half-baked ideas that he's gotten into his head," said Gary Broon of the Glass Store Owners Association.
