Naan arrives in frame, clone plan called off

Salient’s prized Brad Pitt’s Half-Eaten Garlic Naan arrived at the office last Monday mounted, framed and labelled with a printed sticker.

Although seemingly well preserved, its glass case prevents Salient staffers from harnessing Pitt’s genetic material from its chewed edges.

Its preservation also prevents Salient Chief Sub-Editor Michael Langdon from carrying out his plan to eat the month-old bread. This is fortunate, as it is probably hard to check grammar when afflicted with an acute case of food poisoning.

The framed naan features a grease patch, coriander and authentic chunks of garlic stuck to the glass. It currently appears to have no mould, although it is hard to tell how long it will remain fungus-free.

If it remains intact for a long time it can be kept in the Salient office and then later sold on for a higher price to fund the magazine if VSM is introduced.
