How Smart Is That

Perhaps no father has brought home a greater treat than Richard LaMotta, genius creator of the chocolate chip ice cream between chocolate chip cookie best known as the Chipwich. Naturally, the way forward included some experimentation in his own father's basement, where he worked to figure out how to keep the cookies from getting soggy. This week's objet d'eBay, a Chipwich prop advertising the availability of the product, is noted in honor of LaMotta's passing (from a heart attack, not completely surprisingly).

We keep not just the sandwich in our hearts and its brilliance in our heads, but LaMotta's daughters Kaylaand Marika and son Thomas in our thoughts. RIP and EAT.
