And boy did that make ego sore

For that soup of mine

Did not taste so fine

But how it would shine kitchen floor

You're a trip, Martin. As you know, I've already purchased your book. I look forward to reading about your beloved Joy.

Your soup, Martin, used to clean floors?

Now that is really funny.

But do not be too proud my friend.

Cleaning floors with it saves you money.

Funny! I just made a big pot of homemade soup this morning. Hope that it stays in soup bowls and never hits the floor. Of course if it did, we have a dog that would probably help lick it up. :))

Funny. Sounds like some of Mr. B's cooking, and it reminds me of the day we broke a bottle of vokda in the floor. It was the best wax remover we ever used.
