speaking of giving the finger to soup

what is it with split pea soup? can anyone explain to me the allure of something that while marginally okay tasting, combines the attractiveness of a puddle of back alley vomit with the gas producing properties of northern siberia?

i made it, using the 1.5 cups of dried green split peas that were lurking among my dry goods. i can add it to my resume but i shall not make it again* and i most certainly will not consume it again. 48 hours of regular periodic ass bleatings produced by us in tandem made sure of that. 



*don't get me wrong, i'm a decent cook and my soup was as good as split pea soup can be. nevertheless, it remained split pea soup.
