Missing Letter Mondays – No “B”
Published June 8, 2015 by Iphis of Scyros
Instead of an inferior poem, this week I’ll give you a riddle. The word starts with the letter-that-must-not-enter-the-post. Well, not exactly a riddle, per se, though I’m not sure what else to call it.
“Pānis et circēnsēs,” as Juvenal put it…only without the circuses. We need it daily, though it’s lost popularity due to the Atkins diet. (Though that unpopularity was worse once than it is now.) Flour is important, though if it’s wheat flour then it’s not gluten-free. (Why do they put gluten-free stickers on water? Who would put wheat in drinking water?)
Okay, so I suck at riddles, too. I’ll figure this out eventually…
