Wanna see a video about food stamps? Thought so. The Huffington Post sniffed out a time-lapse map (set to an unsettling soundtrack of Frank Sinatra's "I've Got The World On A String") that illustrates the steep rise in food stamps across the country. We're now at a broiling 43 million people, an increase of nearly 60 percent since 2007 according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
