Important stuff! Where was the burger born?

Burger Brawl: Texas Rep Claims Burger Birthplace: Was the burger born in Athens, TX, or New Haven, CT?

New Haven weighs in.

Another paper weighs in.

DeStefano notes that New Haven has been a cradle of creativity, as the birthplace of the cotton gin, the first rubber tires, the corkscrew, the Frisbee, lollipops, Erector Sets and pizza.

Methinks it's time to check those bonafides.

The Frisbee? Lollipops? Hard to believe.

(Someone invented the hamburger? That's hard to believe too.)
