Non Funny Truth: most likely a person saw an animal (like a bear) eating it and thought if it was good enough for them, its good enough for us.
Now the first person to try lobster was just nuts.
@on the crapper, another fact: lobster used to be a poor man's meal until a president(I forget which one) continued to eat it after being elected and the higher class picked up on it.
@on the crapper, or a chicken egg.
@RiffRaff, Lobster was prisoner food for a long time during the Civil War!
@PeanutButterPopsicle, damn, lucky prisoners
@RiffRaff, Now: "What do you want for your last meal?" "Lobster."
Then: "What do you want for your last meal?"
"Anything but damn lobster ya cruel bastards!"
@RiffRaff, Thankyou factual side of funny pics
@on the crapper, they say that's likely how coffee was found. A goat herder observed that his goats became perky after they ate the coffee beans.
@on the crapper, think about milk from cows. Who thought to drink that. and it was probably before pasteurization
@on the crapper, by those standards, I wonder how long it took our species to realize that we cannot graze and digest grass like cows do.
@RiffRaff, true. It was fed to prisoners and was called the cockroach of the sea.
Someone probably got a bee hive thrown in their face and somehow survived to tell others of what he tasted
I wonder who the first person was to post this
Same wonder goes to the person who wanted to drink the milk of an animal, create condoms from goat intestines, and the first person to ride a horse.
@City87, the milk one is kinda obvious. We make milk and so should other mammals.... Why not take a squeeze?
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, I figured the milk from our own, but the question was how they got it out. The first person had to have been suckling at the teat before they figured out how to milk it.
@City87, *squeeze squeeze*
@City87, wanting to ride a horse doesn't seem very weird
@qzw444, maybe not now, but you can reference a recent meme to explain why I said that
Being a person that has bees and collects the honey from them, you can actually smell the honey when it gets to this time of year, it's a very sweet smell
Bees: if we die, we're taking you with us.
Probably a bear
Yogi the bear?
I wonder who was the first person to be like "yeah we have to test your prostate Sooooooooo lay on your side"
@TheUnofficialCarGuy, they probably
