We Canadians, sometimes referred to as Canuckleheads, are a weird lot: masochistic too as you can see by our predilection for Pain Bread. By eating this bread, we feel that in some small way we share the pain of other less fortunate people in the world.
Pain bread contains a coarse sand as one of its main ingredients, and by default it is primarily eaten when dry and stale. One gets even more pain points to one's credit when it has gone a bit of mouldy. Pain bread comes in various thresholds, of which Pain Betty Bread is but one. Pain Betty Bread is of mid-level pain threshold on the pain continuum, Pain Hazel Bread being the most painful to eat, while Pain Iris Bread is the mildest of the pain format breads.
Of course, there are those who think that pain is simply the French word for bread. While this is true, we all know that it goes much deeper than that. Much.
And let's not even get into what we do with cakes.
