## Question

Mr. Soup, Mr. Potato, and Mr. Vegetable

All three men are “self-proclaimed” chefs and each claim that they are the best.

Mr. Soup can deliver the best time per dish

Mr. Potato delivers the most powerful individual dishes

Mr. Vegetable specializes in frozen popcorn

Ironically all three men live in the same city.

In fact, they live right next to each other.

Mr. Soup lives next to Mr. Potato, but not next to Mr. Vegetable

They want to have a cook-off but can never seem to cook at the same time.

What’s up with these guys and what town do they live in?

I think the neighborhood is the kitchen. Mr. Soup lives in the microwave, Mr. Potato lives in the convection oven and Mr. Vegetable lives in the freezer.

I like your thinking but one slight problem....

if this is so, why can't they cook at the same time?

well yes, but all of these objects have the capability to function at the same time.

courses of a meal served in a restaurant? Therefore, they don't cook at the same time.

I don't know, I'm pretty stumped.

They are the 3 states of water; ice, water and steam. I'd guess that soup=steam, potato=water and vegetable=ice? Although you can drop ice in boiling water and have all three at the same instance, it's unlikely to have all 3 together long enough for each to "cook" something.

i am going to have to agree with this..

They cant cook at the same time because each dish takes a different time and temperature to cook the item.. in a microwave time is quick, in an oven the potato takes a while to cook. and the steamer with the vegetables takes a shorter time then the potato but a longer time then the soup. so if these were in the same dinner it would be potato goes in first. then the steamer for the vegetables and then the soup when the other two are about done
