Cold Comfort
Cold Comfort

While be-bopping along the Esplanade, you come across a hobo swaddled in a huge scarf and busily stirring an enormous pot. It's not suspended over a fire, though -- it's suspended over a big pile of ice cubes.

"Hey, err... whatcha makin'?" you ask.

"Soup. Good soup. Nice and cold. Want some? 5 nickels."

Buy some soup (5 nickels)
  • With 5 hobo nickels:

You hand over the nickels and take a bowl of the cold, cold soup.

  • Without 5 hobo nickels:

You can't afford a bowl of soup.

I’ll have the salad. I mean, I’ll leave.

The prospect of consuming frigid soup leaves you... underwhelmed. So you leave.

Occurs at Exposure Esplanade, semi-rarely.


  • The Pink Floyd song "Wish You Were Here" contains the lines "and did they get you to trade... cold comfort for change" which is, in effect, what you do here.
