Best before.....?

What's the deal with the best before dates on food? Seriously. Am I the only one who pays them any heed? They are, as I have always assumed, put on food products with one function in mind: To let you know when to eat it before it gets all manky and smelly. (Hmmm....maybe they should do that with vaginas?)

However, I have been told on many occassions that on certain products, these dates are of little consequence. Bread for example. Who cares if it's best before the 23rd and now its the 25th. Its been in the fridge. Its grand, eat it. thank you, it's purple. I have issues with purple bread.

What do you think? Are best before dates passed their sell by date? (see what I did there)
