A Holiday tale

Our tale begins on a cold December morning. Mr. Banana Bread awoke to a new day with little hope for a bright future. It was almost Christmas and he was desperate.
 He had recently been burned by a weekend bakery girl and things didn't look good for him. He was out of work and didn't know what to do. He was, however, if nothing else determined. He vowed he would not loaf around. He had several promising leads and he was hoping one of them would pan out.
 As luck would have it, he did land a position as a deli clerk. Although the pay wasn't so good he was ecstatic. He knew that even with a little dough in his pocket he could buy a few gifts and make it a Merry Christmas for his wife and their 3 little muffins.
Had he not gotten canned the next day for doing a really crummy job it might have worked out.

Sorry but not all Christmas stories have a happy ending but I bet you did get a good laugh out of it. Don't worry I won't tell Mr Banana Bread that you laughed at his misfortune. I hear he's buried pretty deep in a dumpster right now anyway.

From The Lake Erie Times and Titillations: Local bakery manager fired for publishing how she and her fellow co-workers tortured and cruelly disposed of Mr. Banana Bread while at work. No comment from her former employer. ACLU, PETA and the American Processed Flour Association (APFA) looking to file lawsuit before Homeland Security can place her in a management position oversees.

Not to worry...the Pillsbury dough boy will be right there to fill in for him! Been sniffing lots of flour these days Ann? Bwahaha!!

I need to adopt your outlook when baking calamities arise in my kitchen. Considering the first photo, I think Mr Banana Bread might have had a career in tap dancing. He is (was) a rather endearing fellow! :)

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Poor Mr. Banana Bread. Be careful or he'll cry discrimination against those who are dark.
