And now it’s time for America’s favorite game show, SOUP OR SCIENCE! And now here’s your host, Ian Matthews!
IAN: Hello and welcome to Soup or Science! With me is today’s contestant Steve! Steve, how are you?
STEVE: All right.
IAN: Are you ready to play Soup or Science?
IAN: The rules are simple. I’m going to read you from a list of words and you just tell me if each word is either a scientific term or just a bowl of soup. Easy, huh?
IAN: Okay, let’s play Soup or Science! Round One. Alphabet. Soup or Science?
STEVE: Alphabet, let’s see, alphabet… SOUP! Alphabet soup!
IAN: CORRECT! Round Two. Chicken. Soup or Science?
STEVE: Chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken…SOUP! Chicken soup!
IAN: YOU GOT IT! Now for Round Three. Fagioli. Soup or Science?
STEVE: Hmmm, wow, that’s a tough one. That really doesn’t sound like a soup, so I’m going to say Science.
IAN: Really. What do you think a fagioli is?
STEVE: I think it’s a species of donkey in France.
IAN: Interesting. But is he right?
IAN: I’m sorry, that’s incorrect. Fagioli is actually a soup.
STEVE: Say what?
IAN: Have you ever eaten at an Italian restaurant? They serve pasta fagioli, which is a type of soup. I’m sorry Steve, but you lose the game. Thanks for playing and be careful, don’t get kicked in the head by a fagioli! (Exaggerated laughter as STEVE leaves the stage) Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next time on Soup or Science!
