Britain, It Turns Out Breadsticks Aren't What You Think They Are

America keeps going on about them, but why?

Posted on

So, you may have heard Americans talking about breadsticks. They're very passionate about them.

I've been assuming it was just a weird American proclivity, like biscuits and gravy, or how they're letting a old leather handbag with an orange wig run for president.

A particular restaurant, Olive Garden, which from what I understand is like an Italian Wetherspoon's with less tragedy and more forced corporate jollity, offers UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS.

They're fine. You can eat one or two while waiting for your pizza but, frankly, they aren't that great. No British person has ever felt any particular love for them.

So why in the hell are Americans so passionate about these dry, tasteless sticks?

If Olive Garden breadsticks haven't made a positive impact on your life than I don't believe you are living life..

And it gets weirder! There's an entire meme about leaving a crappy date but taking the breadsticks.

Why would you stop to take breadsticks? WHY?

What the fuck are you people thinking? Why would you make a meme about these insanely lame things?

Because, it turns out, they mean something else, and that something else is MAGNIFICENT.
