1 pot filled with water
1 pair of socks
The scene starts with the “chef” stirring the pot.
Chef: (while stirring, looks into the pot and says) “Almost done.” (He then smiles to himself and walks off stage.)
Taster 1: (walks onto the stage, looks into the pot, and tastes the soup.) “Mmmm. Delicious!” (He walks off to the side of the stage.)
Taster 2: (walks onto the stage after Taster 1 has left. He also is intrigued by the pot and tastes the soup.) “Wow! This is outstanding soup!” (He also walks off to the side of the stage.)
Chef: (walks back onto the stage and looks into the pot. The tasters gather in front of the chef.)
Taster 1: “What’s in the soup?”
Taster 2: “Tomatoes?”
Taster 1: “It’s amazing!”
Chef: (has a confused look on his face.) “What are you guys talking about? I was just washing my socks!” (Chef dips the socks out of the pot to show the crowd. The tasters make faces and pretend to gag, and then run off stage.)
