Onboard a naval ship, the sailors were turning in their food trays with everything eaten but the bread. This upset the mess officer who had baked the bread. When he asked if there was something wrong with the bread, some sailors said it was too hard. The officer would have none of that.
“If Columbus had had that bread,” he said, “he and his crew would’ve eaten every crumb.”
“Yessir,” one sailor piped up, “but that’s because this bread was far fresher back then!”
