Chicken soup cartoon.

doctor tells patient to try chicken soup

Homemade chicken soup is out of this world, but I rarely get to have it! I made it myself a couple of times, and it was amazing. *Update: Trader Joe’s Kettle Cooked Chicken Soup is pretty addictive, too.

On the other hand, Chicken Soup books… not so much. I’m in quite a few of them on various topics, but I’m not fond of their business plan. They used to pay competitively and fairly, but now they are way below market price. Too bad, it was fun to think up cartoons for their various subjects.

I think they must inspire a lot of people, however, else why so popular? You mean it’s the 4th grade reading level? No way, it’s the cartoons!
