@genew49: Did your mom show that technique to my mom, who was doing it in the 1960s?

My mom also stuffed peanut butter into the groove of celery sticks, which made both the peanut butter and the celery taste way better.

No point in watching. The thing's an hour long, and I'll bet money it won't tell me who invented my favorite food, whether I pick popcorn of the breaded pork tenderloin.

Cavemen? Pretty sure that's who invented hunting, killing, and eating deer. Jägerschnitzel, in particular was … I dunno .. the French? ;)

Based on volume, pizza would be my fav. Not sure who invented it, but Mario's in W-S NC perfected it.

The cavemen who invented fire. Should get a posthumous Nobel prize…….or something.
