Food Fight: The Great Wars Re-Created by Food

Here's something that should be shown in every history class in junior high school -- a video representing every war that America's been in from WWII to present day... using food.

In this video by Stefan Nadelman titled Food Fight (what else?), food represents various countries. 

Burgers, chicken nuggets, and chicken sandwiches are the U.S.; matzo is Israel; Bratwurst and pretzels are Germany; kebabs are Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan; fish and chips are England; sushi is Japan; kimchee is Korea; and a Cuban sandwich is, well... Cuba.

Watch the film, which took three months to make, and learn a delicious history lesson. (Note: All food was eaten by the filmmaker and his dog.)
