Dinner table is a period 12 oscillator. It was the first period 12 oscillator to be found, and was discovered by Robert Wainwright in 1972.^{[1]} It consists of four eater 1s hassling a prebeehive. In terms of its minimum population of 33 cells, it is the smallest known nontrivial period 12 oscillator, although the trivial mold on long hook eating tub contains only 24 cells.^{[2]} It can also be extended as an agar.
