What idiot decided the size of corn chips?

Corn chips are too big. No one has a mouth that size! I want the name of the idiot that decided they should be just over the size of everyone's mouth and then the long string of bozos that have failed to recognise that fact and carried on making them that size for at least the last 30 years.

You load up one of the oval corn chips with guac and then fail to get the whole thing in your mouth, so you bite it, leaving you with 2 or 3 broken bits of corn chips in your hand. Double dipping rules preclude you from dipping again now. And besides, you exactly don't have enough chip left anyway to dip with. You will end up with guac on your thumb if you try. Doubly precluding double dip rules.

The triangle ones are no better. Because you have to hold a corner, they snap off at your thumb, leaving you to fish around in the guac for your chip. And they are too big for your mouth.

A failure of innovation in the corn chip industry has been bothering me for a while.

I love me a club sammidge. They are the perfect size and shape for eating and no innovation required. The more traditional the club sammidge the better.
