It was the greatest night of Rimmer’s life. He’d never eaten at the captain’s table before, and he sure as hell wasn’t going to again. For that day was Gazpacho Soup Day, in which Rimmer sent his cold soup back to the kitchen to be reheated, only to discover that the Spanish starter is supposed to be served cold.
As we all know, the anniversary of Gazpacho Soup Day is November 25th. To celebrate, why not read Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, paying particular attention to Part Two Chapter Thirty-Three? Plus, of course there’s Me², where the idea was first screened. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may want to try making the soup itself. This does take a while to prepare, however, so I’ll just be eating Heinz Tomato Soup straight from the tin.
