Urban Legend - The First Champagne Glass

I was at happy hour o_O last week and was discussing this course with some people and we were trying to think up different urban legends when the bar tender mentioned one he had read in a book recently. There is an urban legend out there that the first champagne glasses (think of the flat-topped ones like you see in champagne fountains, not the flutes) were created from moulds of Marie Antoinette's breasts. I wrote it down to do some research on and actually found info on it at http://www.snopes.com/business/origins/champagne.asp. It was an interesting read.
