“I eat the same Indian bread as everyone else. I’m a naan conformist”

“Naan” sounds like “non” and has been used in several “naan conformist” puns. “One of said friends was pigging out on the Indian bread, so I immediately accused him of being a ‘naan-conformist’” was posted on the newsgroup alt.cuddle on November 16, 2003.

*sigh*  For some reason my friends just don’t appreciate my talents.  Indeed, they have gone so far as to claim the following two situations are pummelable offenses;  what do you think?
 
Offense #1:  I was out last night to dinner with a group of friends.  They introduced me to a great Indian place, and I tried the vindaloo.  Yummy!  Warm is good.  One of said friends was pigging out on the Indian bread, so I immediately accused him of being a “naan-conformist”.

I was wary about this Indian bread at first, but now I’m a naan conformist.

I just tried some Indian bread and I think I’m becoming a naan conformist.

I’ve decided not to eat regular white/brown/wholemeal loaves, just Indian bread : I’m a naan-conformist…

Eating the same old Indian bread as everyone else, huh? What’re you, some kind of naan-conformist?

My son refuses to eat his bread with his chicken tikka masala. What a naan conformist.
