Pudding in the News

Stephanie Gibbs

Well, not Drink Your Pudding!, who usually tries to stay below the radar, but two articles from the Atlantic Monthly and one from the New York Times.

Northern Comfort
The Wages of Rice Pudding
Lovin' Spoonfuls

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.

***(Tanner LaBlanc had been christened the previous summer, when GibbsCorp., Int'l was formalized; Fifi LaRue acquired literary alter ego status in February, 2005, when she was turned into an exotic dancer in Las Vegas and murdered for the sake of a mystery competition)
