The word of the day is…

I read in the paper today: “[A British Bakery] has used a legal loophole to beat French boulangers and supply the narrow loaves to the whole of the French railway system.”

loop·hole /ˈlupˌhoʊl/ noun
1. a small or narrow opening, as in a wall, for looking through, for admitting light and air, or, particularly in a fortification, for the discharge of missiles against an enemy outside.
2. an opening or aperture.
3. a means of escape or evasion; a means or opportunity of evading a rule, law, etc. — from Dictionary.com

I have never used this word in this context before! It means BRECHA, in the example, BRECHA LEGAL. Cool, huh? If you would like to try, please, make a comment using this word!! 😉
