Scott:

Actually, the best thing before sliced bread was the toaster. You see, hard
as it may be to believe, bread toasters came before sliced bread. Hence,
the reason for everyone being so amazed at the invention of sliced bread.

Just one of those useless facts that clutter my brain.

PS: Besides, burgers were invented by man, which has a lineage of less than
3 million years. Whereas, the Brontosaurus last existed 65 million years
ago. Thus, "Brontosaurus burgers" would be only available in the Bedrock
(i.e., Flintstones).
