Your Meme of the Week: Bread People

If I haven't eaten in a while, and I laugh too hard, I get this weird throbbing pain on both sides of the back of my head. It's like I'm wearing a really tight motorcycle helmet (or listening to Vampire Weekend). Thanks to Bread People on Tumblr, my head is in serious pain and I may need to use the medical insurance card in my wallet. I should take some Pie-Lynol and rye down.

Bread People is an online picture project where people Photoshop breads and desserts of all sorts on the faces of celebrities, sports stars and political figures. They also change the celebs' names to denote the carb they're embodying. It's taught me that I know dick about breads and how many there really are.

I saw Bread People a few weeks back and wanted to keep it for myself. Benicio Del Churro, Ed Bagely Jr., Robert Brownie Jr., Wolf Blintzer, it was all too much. I haven't peed my pants yet though. Have you seen that scandalous clip of Ryeley Ryerus smoking salvia out of a bong? It's banana nuts bread.

Enough of me, get to laughing you guys. If anyone of you are out and about, get me a BLT. Hold the Scott Mayo...

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
