Potato Chips - Are we not men?
Potato Chips
Did you know, the first potato chips were invented in 1853 in Saratoga Springs, NY? Yes. By George Crum. Do you know *why* he invented them? Out of spite! Haha!

See, a guy was in his restaurant bitching that the french fries (yes, in those days chefs made french fries) were too thick. Chef Crum took offense to this complaint, and decided to shut that whiner the hell up. So he cut the potatos so thin they were almost transparent, and fried 'em up.
"Hah, let's see him call THESE 'too thick'!"
But he didn't call them too thick - he called them delicious!

God bless George Crum!!

(At first, I thought you meant he made them in spite of his name.)
