It’s A Beautiful World #56
Ah yes, the automatic bagel pick up machine. Invented by Mark Stein in 1927, this handy device could pick up a bagel four feet from where someone was standing.
The question was, why on earth would anybody need to pick up a bagel that was four feet from where they were standing. No one took him seriously. This caused great distress in Mark Stein and he later was committed to an institution. Years after he passed on, a device like Mark’s was needed in one of those corporate bagel companies.
Lucky for Mark, he patented his device.
Mark Stein’s widow and children are now millionaires. We can all thank Mark for making this a better world. A moment of silence please.
