The Birth of the Potato Chip
The guy who invented the potato chip, George Crum, did so by accident while trying to be a dick to one of his customers.
On August 24, 1853, some guy (Cornelius Vanderbilt) at the Moon’s Lake House, Saratoga Springs, New York, kept sending back his potatoes complaining they were too thick. Pissed off, and wanting to fuck with this asshole in his restaurant. Finally, he sliced them super thin before frying them, but to his surprise, Vanderdouche loved them.
Boom. The potato chip was born.
