    The one that's dumb enough to include brand names of ingredients.

    There's a chain called McAlisiters Deli that served a very good cheese soup. I don't like large quantities of it but a cup served with a half sandwich is just right.

    Who goes to Vermont for cheese and ale?
     
    Try this instead:
     
    Gather one stick of butter; a quarter cup of flour; 20 oz. milk; a bottle of Wisconsin beer; Worcestershire Sauce; dry mustard; salt; cayenne pepper; 2 cups shredded Wisconsin sharp cheddar cheese; croutons (optional); and smoked sausage (optional).
     
    Standby for further instructions.
