    Look at what’s on the table for context – loaves and fishes. I’d need to see the text it’s embedded in to say more. Pretzels were also adopted by the Church to represent the trinity (3 holes) or hands folded in prayer. So unless we’re positing a saint taking a holy dump on the table, that’s a pretzel.
