    Expand their brains? I don't think they all approve of everything their leader does. Most of them just worry about GETTING a loaf of bread for their families.

    I dont think them labelling pizza elastic loaves is any different then when americans coined the freedom fries thing..doesnt matter if one sounded better than the other..it is simple immaturity.
