Paul Bunyan's Split Pea Soup Paul Bunyan sent one of his cooks to a nearby town to get a wagonful of split peas. On the the journey home, the wagon broke and spilled the full load of peas into a lake. To make the best of the situation, Paul threw 300 hams into the lake and then built a big fire around it.
