Epic food scan 9: Wieners and Ford.

The assembly line.  A true invention of brilliance.  One person in a line of many, doing one thing over and over all day long.  Henry Ford introduced the world to mass produced efficiency.  Everything from clothes and tents to appliances and books were produced in record numbers by the vast faceless hoards of assembly line workers.

At the end of their mind numbing, single task days, workers would flock home to their mass produced subdivisions and sit down to a nice mass produced meal like wieners.  In a single desperate act of rebellion, millions of hair hard sprayed housewives rebelled by twisting and contorting the mundane, mechanical separated meat matter into true art.
