LOL this article is 5 things you didn't know were invented "recently".

Teddy bears, 1902, apparently Teddy rosevelet went out hunting, didn't get anything so his buddies clubbed a baby bear and hung it to a tree for him to shoot. He didn't shoot it, but it was known as "teddy's bear" voila teddy bears.

Patriotism was apparently not invented until the late 18th century... I'm not sure thats legit, but this quote is hillarious.

It wasn't until the Enlightenment-inspired Founding Fathers of the U.S. and their French cousins got it into their heads that states should be governed by the people, that the people actually got boners for the state. Which is probably the best description of nationalism anyone's ever going to come up with: state boners.

I guess you liberals are just real patriots. You got massive boners for the state!
