CARTOON CHARACTER : The Soup

Details:
First enters recorded history in April 1665,in St Giles-in-the-Fields,London,where an apothecary called Lemuel Balding claimed to have concocted a "sweet-tasting medicinal potion to counteract ye Plague." (Some historians believe Baldings concoction might actually have CAUSED the Plague.)
Ingredients::
A matter more for myth, gossip, and rumour than for clear, unambiguous culinary record. Escoffier, the great French chef, never mentions Full Moon Soup, nor does Mrs Beeton, but Louisiana barbecue king Leroy Baldangle is on record as saying it contains "no sweetnin' worth a lick, but mos' definingly buffler hump!"
