The Grocer: "Campbell's Cream of Mushroom? Sounds like a party at your house!"
The Lady: "No...just the family. But they call it a party when we have that soup!"
OK everyone, let's back up a minute.
Have you ever looked at a can or a plate of Cream of Mushroom Soup and thought: Party time! Well, these folks do. Streamers, balloons, disco ball on the ceiling instead of the old porcelain light fixture that's been in the kitchen since 1932. And then, before they've even cleared the bowls off the table, there's music playing, and the neighbors are knocking on the door armed with champagne. And before you know it someone starts doing the Charleston on the coffee table. Mother, probably - as usual.
|Yay, we have Campbell's soup!|
And all because there was canned Cream of Mushroom Soup for dinner. Now we know what they had at those bacchanalias in ancient Greece. Not to mention what Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald had for dinner before they went carousing through the fountains of Paris. Too bad Mother had to make do with the birdbath out in the yard.
