Best thing since sliced bread: a humorous and hyperbolic statement indicating one’s belief that something is excellent, especially something new and innovative 有史以來最棒之事物

Examples: 1) These water proof jeans are the best thing since sliced bread! I don’t have to worry about getting soaked!

Is Avocado Toast (酪梨吐司) the Best Thing Since and For Sliced Bread?

Why is this green toast so beloved? Maybe it’s because smashed avocado is the ultimate wingman—It pairs well with sweet, savory, and spicy. You can eat avocado toast for breakfast with eggs, for lunch with bread, turkey and tomato, or dinner with shrimp on top. The creamy texture makes it feel like you’re eating something sinful and decadent, when it’s actually nutrient-dense and free of sodium, cholesterol, and gluten.

Alex Salmond said he believed there would be a “Yes vote” in a referendum within four years, although the precise timing would depend on Brexit. He said: “I think Scotland will become independent, I think that was rendered inevitable when the Scottish Parliament was established.(…..)

“If Brexit is a soaraway success, the best thing since sliced bread, then I think that will postpone another referendum but I don’t know anyone who thinks that now.

“So therefore I think a (second independence) referendum will be at some point in the next three to four years.”
