I used to have a bread box, but no more.  It would take up too much counter space in my current kitchen.  Now I stash my bread in my toaster oven.  Just have to remember to take it out if I need to use the oven.  

"Is it bigger than a bread box?" is a classic line, isn't it?  I wonder if young folks today would know what this means?

I bow to your better memory. You must be younger than me? lol
I have no recollection of hearing it said on the show...but then again...there is a lot of things I don't recollect anymore. rofl

I guess this OLD dog can still learn new tricks.

CJ, that may be true, but the phrase was immortalized on What's My Line?

@Alan - That phrase was used a lot when playing "21 Questions". After figuring out if it was Animal, vegitable or mineral...the question was invariably "Is it bigger than a bread box?".

And usually right next to the bread box was the "Cookie Jar".

Some of us old folks may remember " Is it bigger than a bread box"when trying to guess an object on TV shows.
