Wow! A New Japanese Meme That Compares Baby’s Arms To Bread! You Won’t Believe It…

It seems there’s a brand new craze sweeping the country of Japan at the moment, and it’s causing quite a stir online.

Japanese parents have taken to sharing images of their offspring on Twitter, but not in the usual “OMG look at what my baby did, isn’t it cute?” kind of way…they’re…well, they’re comparing their children’s limbs to bread rolls.

Yes, you read that right. Bread rolls. To be more specific, it’s a special kind of pull apart, half baked white brioche roll that is popular in the Far East.

When the rolls are looked at more closely, they actually do resemble the fleshy arms of babies.

The trend began when Twitter user Koni (@sn15papa) shared an initial photo with the caption – “which is bread and which is baby arm, I can’t tell?” It took off and hundreds more social media users ran with the craze. It’s still proving to be really popular weeks on – and shows no signs of stopping.

Don’t believe us? Take a look and see for yourself! You’ll never see bread in the same way again.

Yes sir, that’s my breadstick

Spot the difference. Once is a pasty, white, doughy blob of goodness. THE OTHER IS A BREAD ROLL. *ka-boom-tsch*.

There’s an arm in there somewhere

Two of these are toastable, the other is a baby – bet you’re really struggling to tell which it is.

Seriously, it’s a good job the wrapper was left on, because there’s no way we’d be able to tell which was which, otherwise. Part baked roll, or baby. Hard to recognise where the bread starts and the baby ends.

These are getting weirder and weirder now. But curiously, we’re getting hungry. Anyone got any butter?

The parents decide to just simply start posting pictures of the baby’s arms without the bread, because, well, we were all getting the idea and we could see that they looked like part baked baguettes.

Ah…that’s better…back to adding in the bread for comparison, because we’d all forgotten what we were looking at for a minute
