Beat 360° – 5/1/08

Hey Bloggers!

Good afternoon. It's time for ‘Beat 360°.’

Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption. Our staff will get in on the action too.

Tune in every night at 10p ET to see if you are our favorite! Can you Beat 360°?

Here is today’s “Beat 360°” pic of the day:


Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., seated next to Vice Chair Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., holds up a loaf of bread on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, during the Joint Economic Committee's hearing on rising food prices.

Have fun with it.

Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    Can we spread a little truth on a slice... It is the cost of the fuel to get this loaf to the market that is the real bologna.

    ...And don't even get me started on what's happened to size of bagels lately. I mean in my day you could get one the size of your head for dime, but today you'll be lucky to find one half that size for less then two dollars. ....Unless of course you want the creme cheese too... Ha! That they tell me will be extra now. Well let me tell you when I was a kid creme cheese was a given, and it was dispensed from a large crock delivered fresh by the dairy that same morning. ...Yep....Yep....We had no need for those ridiculous little packets of creme cheese that you can barely open unless you use your teeth.....And what are those anyway. I mean were they originally intended for astronauts or something....?

    ....Oh, sorry Mr Chairman, is my time up?

    Well you could go to the White House for a hot-dog, or just stay here with me for some PB&J.

    We all heard congress is passing out the bread to 130 million American households in May.
    Isn't the stimulus package suppose to be given in the form of a check?

    Schumer: I hate to sound preachy, but as example for us, Christ divided five loaves of bread and two fish and fed five thousand. So just imagine the miracles an individual can perform with a little bit more bread in their pockets. C’mon have a half…I mean, a heart.
