Today's question: Stop me if you’ve heard this one before… A sheep, a duck and a rooster walk into a bar… It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but in 1783 those three animals (together) made history in France. It happened when two men known as the Montgolfier brothers developed a new mode of transportation... and to show it off for the public, they used a sheep, a duck, and a rooster as stand-ins for humans. The test went smooth and invention was a success! As a bonus, none of the animals were harmed, except at one point the sheep did sit on the rooster. Tell me, what type of invention did they create?
