The human hippocampus is a centre in the brain involved in prediction and comparison. It has been found to react when there are discrepancies between what we expect and what actually occurs.

So when you see the word hippocampus instead of bread in my title, it probably woke your brain up a bit. According to this article, making that switch at the end of an idiom/proverb will play upon the hippocampus' ability to flag disparities between expectation and reality.

Hippocampus headlines can be an effective way to pique the interest of your audience and ultimately drive readership for your content. What's more, if the word you're replacing positions your service/product in a positive light (e.g. practice makes perfect), you may just subconsciously bias your reader in the right direction.

In retrospect, I'm not 100% convinced bread is doing wonders when it comes to selling Passle.
