“I can’t believe pretzels are knot bread”

Pretzels are baked bread often—but not always—shaped into a twisted knot. “Pretzels are knot bread” is a pun that was posted to the newsgroup rec.games.roguelike.nethack on August 9, 2005. “I can’t believe pretzels are knot bread” was posted on Twitter on June 12, 2011.


Wikipedia: Pretzel
A pretzel (German: Brezel) is a type of baked bread product made from dough most commonly shaped into a twisted knot. Pretzels originated in Europe, possibly among monks in the Early Middle Ages. The traditional pretzel shape is a distinctive nonsymmetrical form, with the ends of a long strip of dough intertwined and then twisted back into itself in a certain way ("a pretzel loop"). Pretzels now come in different shapes.
