It's always nice to be ahead of the curve.
The Story of Drink Your Pudding!
Drink Your Pudding!, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of GibbsCorp, Int'l, was established in a diner in Chicago in March, 2005.
While the full company of DYP! was not present, the Matriarch, the Golden Son***, and the Eldest were contemplating the depths of metaphysical meaning in bowls of tapioca with whipped cream, trying on nom de plume variations for Pippi [Aubergine], and desperately trying to drink the worst coffee ever served in a Chicago diner. When the Matriarch tired of these diversionary tactics, she picked up her spoon, and declared:
"Drink Your Pudding!"
And we did.
