Dank Meme Soup

"What?" you're asking. I didn't name it. Bubba did.

Chef Bubba was back in the kitchen working his magic. This little creation involved beef broth and a sweet potato. The boy cooked some spaghetti noodles and dumped them in a pot of beef broth. Then he cut up some celery and carrots and added them to the mix. He seasoned it with pepper, and then added the secret ingredient:  a sweet potato.

Amazingly, the boy peeled the thing. But that was where it stopped. After peeling, Bubba tossed the uncut potato into the pot. He let it simmer for a while and then announced that his soup was ready.

I went over to investigate, and saw this sweet potato rising up like an island in the middle of broth.

"Dude," I said. "What's up with the sweet potato? Aren't you going to cut it?"

He shook his head. "No, Mom. This is Dank Meme soup. You never cut the sweet potato when you make Dank Meme soup!"

So, ladies and gentlemen, remember that. Never cut the sweet potato when you make Dank Meme soup!

  1. What if you have to use a Russet potato? Do you cut those or leave them whole?

  2. Hi, Sherry!

    If you ever want to feel old and out of the loop, try hunting down the exact meaning of a term like "dank meme." I just spent the last 15 minutes reading about them and watching videos about them. The info is confusing and contradictory. Dank memes can refer to something that is cool or they can be used to refer to something that was once cool but which has become old, trite and stale. The key seems to be when something that originates in internet culture goes mainstream. That's when it is likely to be mocked and shunned by the cool kids (just like it was back when you and I were young).

    As for Bubba's soup, it sounds cool. It sounds hot. It sounds rad, but if somebody my age praises it too highly, then it will surely turn dank (in the negative sense).

    My brain is ready to explode, but now I'm hungry for soup! :)

    See you again soon, I hope, dear friend Sherry!

    1. Haha! I'm laughing over here. Leave it to you to research the terms, dank and meme. I stopped researching that stuff a long time ago, because like you, I found it all very confusing!

  3. The real question is, how did it taste?

  4. Now we know how to create an island for sweet potato and we learned a new type of soup. Did it taste good?

  5. I've no idea what Dank is, but I hope no dogs and cats were poisoned by the soup

    1. The dog and cat did not ingest. But in case you're interested, no humans were poisoned by the soup.

    1. It was very good. It kind of tasted like beef vegetable soup.

  9. The sweet potato could have thickened the soup, but did he cook it long enough for that? I'm interested in the taste like some of the other commenters, but methinks Bubba has a flair for the dramatic, such as the floating island of potato. . .he just needs more time to perfect his style.

  10. The first thing I thought was the same as everybody else. How did it taste? The sweet potato actually sounds interesting. But I think I'd break the rules and cut it though.

    1. It tasted good. The garbage got the sweet potato. It wasn't cooked enough to eat.

  13. I like his approach. Simple. Very little prep and time to read or write and daydream as you wait for the sweet potato to reach doneness. I'm writing this one down. Thanks, Bubba.

  17. Hilarious! For a minute, my tired Monday morning eyes thought that said "duck" rather than "dank!" I wondered if Bubba was really cooking up ducks!

    1. Haha! If he was cooking ducks, I'm pretty sure he'd leave the feathers on. ;)

  18. "Dank" doesn't sound very appetising, but I'm sure it tasted great!

    1. Yes. I thought that was an odd choice for a word, but supposedly, it means it's cool.
