Parents Compare Their Babies To Bread In Latest Bizarre Viral Trend


Bread or baby?

The latest social media craze sees Japanese parents comparing their babies’ chubby arms to doughy loafs of bread – and it’s weird.

Hundreds of parents are taking to Twitter under the hashtag, #我が子の最強ちぎりパン画像 – or – #MyBaby’sGotTheBestBreadPhoto.

The snack being used for reference is the popular ‘pull-apart bread’ available in Japanese 7-Eleven stores, and on closer inspection, the breads’ ridges do sort of look like chubby baby arms.

The trend began after one user, @sn15papa (Koni), posted a photo of her baby with the caption: ‘Which is bread and which is the arm? I can’t tell.’

Over the next couple days, hundreds followed and the hashtag soon went viral:
