That Synthetic Food of the Future (Ogden Standard-Examiner, 1926)

This cartoon appeared on page 10 of the Ogden Standard-Examiner (Ogden City, Utah) on September 19, 1926. In a clear homage to Dilbert, the boss in panel three screams, "It's the second time this week you've taken four minutes for lunch!!" It seems like everyone's stealing from Scott Adams these days.

Well, we kinda do have our meals in pill form.... Except the pills are all of our meds and vitamins! I know after I've taken all my meds, I'm not hungry any longer!

Ordinary food will be gone, but people will still wear white tie to dinner. Brilliant.
