Sometimes new inventions or products seem so simple, you kick yourself because you didn't think of it before someone else.
Case in point: a 9 year old Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, boy has earned an inventor's prize and is now earning cash for coming up with better buns for brats.
The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported Wednesday that Sydney Claxton, who just finished third grade, came up with the idea to make buns that are curved to fit the shape of a bratwurst for an inventor's fair at Parkview School.
The buns were made with the help of Ralph Couey, the owner of Connell's Orchard Shop in Chippewa Falls, and earned the boy two ribbons at the fair. The products have been dubbed Sydney's Curvy Brat Buns and are sold in packs of five for $2.50 at Connell's Orchard. The buns have reportedly been rapidly selling out.
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT??!!
