To be fair, all of you are retarded. Supper, the name for the meal at the end of the day in certain English dialects is derived from the French word souper, which is still used to indicate this meal in Canadian French. Supper and souper are synonymous in some parts of Canada. Supper does not always mean the same meal for all regions in the United States and countries in the world.
"Dinner" vs. "Supper" are interchangeable terms based on regional dialect. Some places in the English-speaking world refer to the evening meal as "Supper"and the mid-day meal as "Dinner". Most others refer to the mid-day meal as "Lunch" and the evening meal as "Dinner". Even across the US alone, the terms and their uses vary widely. However, I have also never heard the term"Souper". It seems it is in use somewhere. "Brunch" is universally a meal between Breakfast and Lunch, or at approximately 10AM.
