"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Set the bread machine for dough. Put the wet ingredients in first then the bread flour pocket the sugar and salt in separate corners and pocket the yeast in the middle of the flour. When the timer beeps take out the dough and roll it on some flour (you don't have to make it completely flat) and cut into three strips. Spray the large cookie sheet with baking spray and pat of the flour from the dough and braid it on the pan so it looks nice also when you want the ends to stick together fold them under with damp fingers. Let it rise back up for about another 2-3 hours. Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
