The First Guy to Order Fast Food

If fast food had to be invented in a hurry, Ryan George figures it would go something like this. In reality, the process took years, as soda fountains, diners, pizza parlors, and street carts took ideas from each other and developed faster ways of serving more customers. Those who needed their food fast were excited to have more choices, and people who never thought about getting food quickly learned to depend on it. The fast food that we have now is so strange and different from the old sit-down restaurant model that it was low-hanging fruit for a comedian like George. Sure it's a dumb idea, but it's well worth the scant two minutes for George's new definitions of words like artery and marzipan.
