The French pastry revolution

Yesterday it was the noirwhal; today on Rhymes With Orange, it’s the French pastry revolution:

A complex tissue of puns, portmanteaus, and cultural allusions.

Start with the title: French pastry + the French Revolution. Then the themes of the cartoon are (simultaneously) baking and the French Revolution.

Baking: the characters are doughboys; dough rises; baguette in the pun on Antoinette; a slicer for bread.

The French Revolution: rose up ‘revolted’; Marie Antoinette; slicer ‘guillotine’.
