Please pass the crackers.
When my son was young one of his very favorite stories was "The Very Hungry Thing", in which a huge beast comes to town and keeps asking for things like "boop and smakers " and "feetloaf". Unfortunately the townspeople have no idea what the is saying. Also obviously a town without any 4-year-olds, who would have caught on right away and had a good laugh at the slow witted adults.
This being the season for soups and having a little bit of this, a dab of that and whole lotta something else, plus a large container of homemade tomato juice....and can't forget that can of Great Northern beans that has been on the shelf forever, hey presto! it's whats for dinner.
