“The five-second rule doesn’t apply to soup”

The “five-second rule” states that if food falls on the floor, it’s still good to eat if you pick it up within five seconds. The “rule,” however, has been debunked.

“BTW, the Five Second Rule doesn’t apply to things like Jell-O or soup or custard pie” was printed in the Battle Creek (MI) Enquirer on April 14, 2007. “The three-second rule doesn’t apply to soup” was posted on Twitter by Markly J Morrison I on June 6, 2011. “The 5 second rule doesn’t apply to soup” was posted on Twitter by Ródd on August 8, 2011.

One of my customers told me that the five minute rule doesn’t apply to soup. Is she for real? (self.shittyadvice)

She also said “it’s the five SECOND rule, jerk-off”, but I know she’s just being a bitch.
