Companies that make alphabet soup should have 26 extrusion machines, each making one letter of the alphabet. However, have you ever considered the idea that the soup companies are cutting costs by only having 25 machines? Maybe they are using the "M" machine to also make the "W". So in a sense there are no true "W"s in the soup, just upside down "M"s.

On the other hand maybe they can not do this, since the M machine is making two letters to the other machines one, the M machine would have to run twice as fast to keep up. So at full production when all the machines are at top speed the M machine could not possibly keep up. Add to the fact that the M machine would run twice as many letters than the rest in a given time period, the M machine would wear out faster. So maybe there is no real cost advantage to using the M to make both M & W letters.

Although the extra wear and tear on the M machine maybe offset by the cost savings of not having to buy a W machine.

That's an interesting idea, but let me throw out another: If the Alphabet Soup companies were intent on serving the consumer rather than needlessly aggrandizing their stockholders, they'd issue many more vowels than they do today.

Instead of a representative set of letters that truly reflect the society they purport to serve (and its norms) they perpetuate a stilted version of language and its constituent parts that does not at all represent the populace as a whole.

They pass this on to us in a broth of scurrilousness and expect us to consume it as a wholesome meal.

We, as a people, should demand that the letters employed represent the letters available and accept no lesser goal.

There is no excuse for this behavior other than the lazy perpetuation of existing norms despite clear cultural demands for change.





I like chicken soup without alphabet letters, FWIW.

So does that kind of alphabetical egalitarianism occur at a per batch or per can level?

You could make every effort to ensure the latest 500 gallon batch has the correct letters but how do you do the same for every can?

Maybe they make as many "M/W"s as any other letter.

IE, it's up to the subject to interpret the object as necessary.

Either way, I'm sure they're in cahoots with the Wheel of Fortune final puzzle designers.
