    stupid chauvinism

    maybe the hamburger was invented by one USAmerican. Apple-pie and coleslaw were not. The very word "coleslaw" is peasant-dutch for "cabbage-salad"

    Wrong. Louis Lassen invented hamburger. The first hamburger was sold in 1895 by Lassen. Actually the sandwiches were named after Hamburg steak.
