Croissant redesign

One big question mark ?

At the risk of redundacy, a brief history: bakers contribution to the world as we know it. During the Seige of Vienna in 1683, who was it that was up working in the wee hours of the morning? Yup. And who heard strange sounds underneath the city at those hours? Right again. And who alerted the proper authorities that the Turks were tunneling underneath the city in preparation for an attack, thus staving off certain defeat and in fact turned it into victory?That's right. How was that victory commemorated? They left it the bakers, they shaped their dough into the shape of the symbol of the Turkish flag, the crescent, or croissant in french. Now that's ancient history, with just a little effort, a question mark could be formed with the dough, causing people to wonder. "What the hell does that mean"?

       Then it'd be a point d'interrogation, not a croissant. (Quickly abbreviated to a pwu, I would imagine.)

       And suddenly I feel so proud to call myself a baker.

       I quite like this at the moment...

       Huh??

       Am I missing the point here, or is this idea solely to make croissants ?-shaped?
NickTheGreat, Sep 02 2002
  

       I could probably live without a question mark shaped croissant, besides, the dot presents a near insurmountable problem, what would a Bakerery do, sell just the dots, or put the dot in the bag with the point d'interrogation? Nah, it's just an interesting little aside about the origin of the croissant, it's a true story, you can look it up.

       Hey you could make the dots from marzipan or something glutenous and and then stick it to to the ?-. =+)

       Do you want to dehistorize the pastry? What kind of purpose will the new shape serve?   

       Question mark--quite similar in shape to a sickle.

       /the dot presents a near insurmountable problem/   

       Not at all. Munchkins! (link).
