Where did the Phrase Crying in your soup originate from?
I believe it came from the era of the Great Depression when consumers had very little money. However, if you had soup on your dinner table you were doing much better than some. If you were "crying in your soup" then you were not being grateful or appreciating the very fact that you had soup and were crying when others had it soucj worse.

I am not a food historian, but I have been studying the food and culture of the Texas and the American Southwest and Mexican north. I ask everyone to remember that culture and… food have moved freely around this for generations. I believe that "Tortilla Soup" is a fairly recent incarnation. We have a tradition of topping soups. Some spicy soups are topped with diced raw onion, diced jalepeno, cilantro and lemon juice. Beef and vegtable soup is topped with spanish rice and fresh chili sauce. Homemade Mexican style chicken soup is top with fried tortilla strips, avocado chunks, lime juice and chili salsa. I believe it was this last combination that was made both at home or enjoyed at local restaurants I believe some enterprising restaurant marketed the chicken soup renaming it "Tortilla Soup" for the fried corn tortilla strips used. The recipe went viral And now tortilla has changed from what was a fresh chicken soup topped with condiment to this special dish using roasted chicken and jars of salsa to make. The use of items like "roasted supermarket chicken" and "a jar your favorite salsa" lead me to believe that most of these recipes are fairly new because as I recall supermarket roasted chicken and jar salsa where not all that available in most locations 30 years ago. Although I cant be everywhere, what I have noticed is that I guess I started see "Tortilla Soup on the menu's of Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants about in the late 1970's early 1980's in my area of Southcentral Texas. If you would like to get to know the typical cooking of the Southcentral Texas area, come see me at http:/tex-mexoff-the-menu.blogspot.com. thanks
devil sometimes cry and ppl says tat devil never cry so then devil did cry and thus people conclude devil may cry however none have survive an encounter with a devil thus they… can never be sure they DID cry so thus it can only be concluded devil MAY cry. So there. . Originally the phrase "Devil May Cry" was fished out during a conversation between Dante and Lady at the end of Devil May Cry 3(Please bare in mind that it's a preqeul to the previous installments). After the supposed loss of Dante's brother Vergil, Dante is stricken with grief. Lady notices this which leads her to ask if he's crying. He replies "It's only the rain", to which Lady confirms that he was crying for the rain had stopped already stopped abruptly after his answer. She then concludes out loud the following: "Maybe somewhere out there even a devil may cry when he looses a loved one. Don't you think?" Proptly after the events of the of DMC3, Dante opens up shop in which he titles it: "Devil May Cry". . I think its in some way related to the phrase "Devil may care", which is the name of quite alot of different stuff including a Sherlock Holmes book. At the moment I'm still looking into it but I can only presume its some kind of play on that theme, reversing the meaning I think.
For crying out loud is a minced oath, in place of "for Christ's sake."

The idea is that some people are never satisfied; if you have soup, you should be happy to have it, rather than crying into it. One could argue that there is more to life than… soup (which is true) but it is also true that you should appreciate what you have. There are certainly people in this world who would love to have a bowl of soup.
