Change My Mind: The Corner Piece is the Best Piece of the Brownie [POLL]
Today's debate concerns one of the tastiest treats in the realm of desserts- the brownie.
I know what you're thinking, what could I possible argue about a delicious chocolate brownie? Well, it's got nothing to do with plain or frosted, chocolate chips or none (although that would be another topic for discussion for another day), but in fact, the case of the corner vs. the middle piece of a brownie sheet.
I will tell you right now that the corner piece (or even the edge piece) of a brownie is the best part. There should absolutely be no debate about this to begin with, but for the fun of disagreement, I've decided to open up the flood gates and give you the opportunity to CHANGE MY MIND:
I want you, for just a moment, forget that we are talking about brownies, and try to vision a hot, delicious slice of cheese pizza in your hand. Now, tell me this- how are you holding that piece of pizza? I'm just going to assume that have a firm grip on the crust as an anchor point. You could choose to just let it flop over in your hand, but as you take a bite, how do you plan on ripping off a piece with your teeth if you have nothing to hold onto? The crust serves a purpose, no matter what you may think.
Those who decide to eat the crust first--well, that's just not right, but even doing so, you still have your fingers pinched onto the crust for leverage and support.
Now, forget about the pizza and focus on the brownie again. The pizza slice was simply a metaphor. The crust represented the brownie edge as argument that the corner or edge piece of a brownie is better than the center. It serves as a tool and leaves less mess.
I've said what I had to say, now it's time for you to change my mind. Go ahead, tell me I'm wrong, but make sure you bring your "A-Game," because I'm cooking up a batch of righteousness and disputation.
