This is amazing.

Phyllis Diller hates jello and pickles? Who knew?

Not actually that amazing, if you cook from scratch. Looks like a basic vegetable soup base (actually, with the beans, if she added some kind of pasta, it could be minestrone).

The bones contain collagen (the same stuff that makes the jello set up, but without the sugar and flavoring) and marrow, which adds a little richness to the soup. (Boil bones, trimmings and some aromatic vegetables for several hours, strain it off and you have beef stock.)

Soup was originally just a way to stretch limited food a little farther, and use up leftovers. Cooking isn't that hard. It's just that less people do it these days.

The amazing part is that is was a TV Guide ad for THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW.
