Tony goes into his favourite restaurant and orders his favourite dish: a bowl of tomato soup. The soup arrives and Tony looks at it for a moment before signalling the waiter to come back. "Taste the soup," says Tony. "Why?" asks the waiter. "Just taste the soup!" says Tony. "Sir, you've been coming in here almost every day for many years," says the waiter. "You've always enjoyed our soup." Tony says, " I know. Taste the soup!" The waiter protests, "But what's wrong? Is it too hot? Not hot enough? Tony says, "Taste the soup!" "But I don't understand, sir," splutters the waiter. "Did we leave out the salt? Perhaps you don't have enough bread? Is it the bread? Do you want more bread? "Tony glares at the waiter, "Just - taste - the - bloody - soup!" he shouts. The waiter gives in, "All right, sir, all right, I'll taste the soup!" He looks around, "Where's the spoon?" "Aha!" says Tony.
