August 3, 1951: Soup!


The joke is made more effective because the punchline is a single syllable. It doesn't hurt that it's a naturally funny word. Soup!

I like this one especially for the relatively detailed background, which was uncommon even in the early days. Doesn't a picnic in the woods seem like a grand idea?
