Nine bowls of soup

In fact, that Heinz Tomato Soup - the finest of all tomatoey manifestations (and I am prepared to support that assertion with graphs, surveys and, if necessary, a surprising amount of physical violence) - is not even mentioned at the Guernsey Tomato Museum is indicative of the paucity of that attraction.

I suspected that the meh list would cause a stir, and hesitated a moment before including "most soups" in it, knowing full well that there was likely to be some sort of fallout. But I stand by it. I trust neither soup nor soup lovers. For one example, the failure of the ichthyosaur to mention exactly kind(s) of soup are contained in his nine bowls is just one of the loose ends which suggest that the official 'explanation' at the end of the following documentary is nothing more than a smokescreen for a much deeper and more sinister conspiracy. Judge for yourselves, please:

I wasn't aware of TMBG's children's albums and, to be perfectly honest, I wish I hadn't listened to this. I will be humming it all day and be forced to self-harm sometime in the early evening.

For some reason that video or whatever it is doesn't show up on my computer. But I will make this additional note on the subject of soups: leek and potato, Welsh cawl, pea and ham. No arguing with those, I'll warrant. Of course, you can stick your carrot, coriander and orange where the sun don't shine.

That's the tip of the iceberg, Dick. This one is off an album called "Here come the 1-2-3s" which is a fantastic collection of unshakeable ear-pythons.

The daddy ear-python is called "I never go to work". I'm going to put it on Charlotte's blog later as it's her favourite, but, be warned, if you listen once you will never escape it until the sweet release of death.

M'lud, will the court grant me leave to offer a defence of that most viscous of liquid nourishment, Soup. While it is certainly true that some members of the soup community have gone out of their way to disrupt a once great movement, there are still enough honest, hardworking brands to mitigate against punishment, and in any case, if your Lordship sees fit to don the black cap and condemn soup to the gallows, with what will we feed the poor in their coming time of need.
For the defence may I offer this document and just two witnesses , I call One Nigel Slater and Messrs Bender & Cassel Co.

M'lud, members of the jury, I rest my case.
