15 bean soup.

I was just digging in the pantry for peanut butter to make Quinn a sandwich, and found a colorful bag of beans labeled "15 Bean Soup".

I didn't count all the different kinds of beans in the bag, but it certainly looked like a substantial variety of beans in there.

The question that popped into my head was this: who decided on the proper number of beans in a "Multiple Bean Soup"? Did someone prepare and eat a 13 Bean Soup once and say to himself, "There are just not enough beans in this soup"? Conversely, did someone else concoct a 17 Bean Soup, only to try it and decide, "There are just too many damn beans in this soup"? I mean, how does one arrive at a decision regarding bean diversity equilibrium?

Yeah, it's a slow day.
