ignition loaf

Bread generates its own heat. You ever noticed that? Leave a loaf of crappy store-bought sugar 'n' horsehooves bread in its bag out on the counter for an afternoon, then reach in. You're sticking your hand into a puffed latticework of carbohydrate fire. I wonder if the right circumstances ever get together and nudge a loaf of Wonda into full combustion. Strange conflagrations blamed on babysitters, errant Christmas fires that have the forensic teams sniffing at sockets: I bet it's the bread left out on the counter.

Arson at the bakery, that kind of thing.
