Today marks the 111th birthday of one of the most brilliant inventions of all time, the ice cream cone. Take a moment to get the inside scoop, pun intended, on this remarkable discovery.

I don't even like ice cream, and yet even I'm excited. Ice cream in bowl is boring. No, actually, it's stupid. Anybody could have thought of that. Ice cream in a cone, though, BRILLIANT!

Since its invention, a number of competitive events have been created in honor of the ice cream cone. Among them, the attempt to make the tallest cone.

Happy 111th birthday, ice cream cone. I would have bought you a present, but my guess is you're not going to be around long enough to enjoy it. Bon Appetit.
