spirou and the inheritance

Spirou: If you give up on this inheritance, you’re a bowl of jelly!!

Fantasio: J… jelly?! Spirou… how could you?!

It actually says “a plate of noodles” or “a plate of pasta”, but no food says “cowardice” in English like the humble jelly (or jell-o to our American cousins). From André Franquin’s Spirou et les Héritiers (1952).
