There comes to mind an old Scandinavian folklore about a “tramp and his stone soup”. Hungry for food and turned down by the people, the tramp produces a ‘magic stone that can make soup’. With wit and theatrics he sets up a boiling pot and places the stone in it. As the people are enticed he assures them that the most delicious soup is on the menu – but it would be ever so more amazing if he could get some salt.
