This is hardly food-related, but I just saw this on CBS's Sunday Morning show. Animated cartoons are 100 years old this week, thanks to the below film, the 75-second long Fantasmagorie, sketched
by French artist Émile Cohl. It was released to the Follies-going public on August 17, 1908. It was done with black chalk on white paper, then filmed in negative to look like white chalk on a chalkboard.

Just wanted to share this tidbit, that's all. I love how the bottle eats the little cartoon man before it blossoms open.
