Happy 100th Birthday, Lucy: Lucille Ball's Chocolate Conveyor Belt Moment
Thanks to YouTube and The New York Times' @SamSifton for a reminder of this one, the classic I Love Lucy candy wrapping episode. Lucille Ball would have turned 100 years old on August 6th, and even in black & white, she's still funnier than pretty much anybody else. If you want to try this at home, here's Mark Bittman's excellent (and very easy) chocolate truffle recipe. And here's where to buy a conveyor belt, should you not already have one.
