Revive old alphabets and syllabaries with this alphabet soup line.

The ancient alphabets are coupled with ingredients from their area of origin.

For example, beef barley rune, Aztec corn chowder and khipu tomato and vegetable.

       oh sure, it's all fun and games until somebody mistakenly calls forth Azmordeus, Lord of Darkness, during dinner.

       My dinner is runed..

       There's something about this soup I can't quite put my finger on ...

       Unlucky, [sartep], you just missed the LOTR tie-in. There goes two types of runic script!

       Takes all the fun out of making rude words

       In an annotation on "Chinese Symbol Alphabet Soup" in this category, I proposed Unicode Soup. But I guess it would be more pleasant to stick to one symbol group per soup.

       More likely to be a commercial success if it was Egyptian hieroglyphics - kids'll go for anything with a pyramid on it.

       ...or maca-runey and cheese....

       How about binary?

       NOBODY can handle the runes.

       //unlucky, [sartep], you just missed the LOTR tie-in. There goes two types of runic script!//   

       That's not a bad idea.   

       Special promotions will include Elven runes with cream of kingsfoil and TlhIngan gagh and blood sausage for the fantasy and sci fi fans out there.

       Rune cereal would be easier to sell to kids.

       What do you do about runes that have a free floating graphic element to them...guess it would have to have a small bit of pasta to hold it in place.
dooper, Apr 06 2004
  

       Rune Soup was really more the title of the idea.   

       //What do you do about runes that have a free floating graphic element to them...//   

       You could stamp those shapes out of a pasta square and have the missing pieces float around the soup.

       You could easily make this into prune soup by putting a little p in it.
bungston, Apr 07 2004
  

       You could start a corporaton called "Symbology Soups" It's probably already been suggested, but how about binary soup?
whatastrangeperson, Apr 07 2004
  

       This whole thing started because I wanted a binary soup but saw too many things about it on the internet. Was considering hexadecimal soup until I thought about how much I liked runes and other ancient alphabets.   

       //You could easily make this into prune soup by putting a little p in it.//   

       I gotcha covered, buddy.   

       As for primordal soup, you should post that. Primordal soup, now with more carbon! (Actually, I was thinking along the lines of a soup that had all the essential ingredients for your daily life but actually had no living biproducts in it almost like replicator sludge.)

       That would be DNA soup with the nanoscopic base letters A,T,C and G.
FarmerJohn, Apr 08 2004
  

       I would like to witness the look on the face of some Holocaust survivor when two "Sigel" runes floated together to form the insignia of the SS in his bowl of soup. This soup might lose a lawsuit in present day Germany where the swatstika is banned.

       What about super soup? Nobody knows what's in it but it tastes good and cooks easily.
