What was the greatest thing before sliced bread?

Asked by Pseudonym (2542points) February 24th, 2010

A jelly just said that Fluther was the greatest thing since sliced bread. This got me wondering: People always say ”...greatest thing since sliced bread.” What about before sliced bread?

Smiling. And before sliced bread, there was precious little of that. Toast was
raggedy. Everyone was looking sad.

Having someone slice your bread for you.

So, apparently:

It was first sold in 1928, advertised as “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped.”

@Symbeline Darn it! I was getting happy feet the closer I was getting to the bottom and didn’t see “Knives”....dratscile.

@Val123 Saying “dratscile” more than makes up for it though. :D
