What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Asked by xxporkxsodaxx (1386points) August 6th, 2008

I’ve been using the saying, “It’s the best thing since sliced bread” for a long time now, but what was the best thing before there was sliced bread?

Probably sex….yeah sex definitely came first.

The wheel? Human intelligence? Shakespearan Literature? No, Random Mrdan is right sex and the orgasm that follows is the best piece of human evolution that I could think of.

@indy but sex is the best thing that comes before the orgasm =) unless you’re alone, and in which case it’s masturbation.

Socks. I was wondering just this morning if socks were designed at the same time as shoes, or if they came along after. And if after, how stinky were shoes?

@RandomMrdan- interesting, I don’t know whats better the actual intercourse or the sheer bliss that follows? Good point but atleast we can agree that its a hell of a lot better than sliced bread. :-)

@indy haha indeed, slice bread has nothing on sex or the orgasm =)

Non-sliced bread?

Obviously they didn’t call it that though.

I contend that sliced bread is the best thing ever. Before sliced bread they just didn’t say anything at all unless it was something to do with a specific experience in their lives: i.e. That’s the best thing since your uncle won the Roman lottery.
