Dear 100 Hour Board,

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

- GE

A: Dear GE,


And I'm not talking about the band.

That is all.

A: Dear GE,

The best answer I've ever seen to this question can be found at http://www.tiac.net/~cri/1998/bread.html . It is titled, "What was the best thing before sliced bread: A rational and analytical account to acknowledge the query (Without using the word 'and') by Bruce Phillips, maestro of erudition."

The author goes on and on for about five pages, and then finally concludes that the best thing before sliced bread (spoiler warning!) was llamas. Or maybe the knife that cut the bread. At any rate, it's an amusing article.

Of course, you'll find several other answers to this question at http://www.micheleagnew.com/main/2005/05/other_than_slic.html such as:
- Interior plumbing
- Wheels
- Toilet paper
- Un-sliced bread
- Chocolate
- Music
- Chewin' it right off the loaf

- Some Guy
A: Dear GE,

The llama.
