“- Would anyone want this extra unopened can of soup? I bought it without realizing it had lard in it. Also, I just burnt a toast in the oven because I thought the burning smell was the boiling water? What’s going on.. someone take the soup!
- You’re cursed my friend.. maybe you could give it to someone in the street? But you have to open it first? I don’t know how soups work in Canada.
- Canadian soups require those adapter things that have the different sized prongs. At least that’s what the officer told me at the border.”
