Foods served in a "bread bowl"

Just one of the fads that irritate me. It is not worth eating, and is sometimes awkward. 99% of all people who mention something served in one, such as chowder or chili, never comment on the actualy food itself, just that "it's served in a bread bowl." Am I alone in irritation, or do I need to be worried about the economy and terrorism?
Why would you ask? Of course it's one of those lame faux-elegant styles from bygone days.
I can hear it now ... "Boss, the banquet party's here and we're out of bowls!" "Remember those stale rolls I told you to throw out? Fish 'em out of the dumpster, I've got an idea!"
I don't care for the idea; it just seems as if it would negate any goodness the bread had and it seems gluttonous to boot.
I guess I'm in the minority, but I actually prefer a bread bowl when eating something like soup or stew, it soaks up all the delicious juices.
I love bread. The more opportunities I have to eat it the happier I am. And like marietinn wrote, it soaks up all the delicious juices.
