    Ever watch C-SPAN? The only time they ever get ’em all in the same room at the same time is for the State of the Union address and the occasional impeachment vote.

    I’m no Biden detractor (I actually went to the same high school as his wife, but almost 15 years later). I’ve heard him speak, and he can have a biting sense of humor!

    On the other hand, Biden is a step above his predecessor, who told a senator to go perform an anatomically-impossible act to himself while they were on the Senate floor!

    The other day when my wife served me dinner I asked her, “What the heck is this?” She said, “It’s bean soup.” I said, “I don’t care what it’s been, what is it now?” Ba da boom.

    Biting is an understatement.

    One weapon control measure for V. P. Biden is the weapon that he keeps shooting himself in the foot.

    From: “Woman’s Day Collector’s Cook Book (revised and enlarged)

    SBN: 671-21986-3

    ”Senate Bean Soup”

    1 Pound dried marrow, navy, Great Northern, or pea beans
    1 large smoked ham hock
    3 potatoes, cooked and mashed
    2 onions, chopped
    1 cup diced celery
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    Salt and pepper

    Wash the beans and cover with 5 quarts water.
    Bring to boil and boil 2 minutes.
    Remove from heat and let stand 1 hour.
    Bring again to boil and simmer, covered, 2 hours, or until beans begin to mush.
    Add all ingredients, except salt and pepper, and simmer 1 hour longer.
    Remove bone, cut up meat and return to soup.
    Season.
    Makes about 4 quarts.

    Things I had to learn while learning to cook. (Yes, I did with the garlic, but only one bulb.)

    A clove of garlic is one of the segments of a garlic bulb.

    1 U.S. quart is (for cooking purposes) 947 millilitres

    I can’t believe we got this far with no flatulence jokes!

    Only logical, Judy! Most of the comments always have little relation with the comic above them.

    So? What’s wrong with that? I would tell most of the Senat to do the same thing.

    America Cooks: The General Federation of Women’s Clubs Cookbook, Ann Seranne, ed.: Putnam’s, 1967 has this recipe:
    1-1/2 pounds tried pea, navy, or Lima beans, washed
    2 tablespoons butter
    4 large yellow onions, chopped
    1 large clove garlic, chopped
    6 springs parsley
    3/4 teaspoon thyme
    1-1/2 large bay leaves
    1 carrot, chopped
    1/2 lemon, sliced
    1 pound smoked ham hock or shank end of smoked ham
    Freshly ground pepper
    1 tablespoon salt

    This recipe calls for soaking beans overnight rather than using the quick-softening technique. The parsely, thyme, bay leaves, carrot, and lemon are wrapped in cheesecloth as a bouquet garni.

    There have been enough Mexican-American senators that you would think at least one of them would have clued the cooking staff in on epazote.

    Please, no more flatulence jokes. You’re better than that.

    The same pot of bean soup has been cooking there for over a hundred years. Its served and added to, but never completely cleaned out.
