Soulful soup is, apparently, Chicken.
However this begs certain questions. Specifically:
Who says?
What standards were employed?
What of Beef Vegetable and Tomato?

The above two examples are worthy of, at least, serious consideration. I've had Beef Vegetable that has satisfied me more than any Chicken. Admittedly Chicken seems to have some curative properties for those suffering from colds. However, the metaphor breaks down in reference to the SOUL. My soul has never had a cold. Or influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia, etc. Therefore, Chicken soup couldn't benefit my soul, metaphorically or otherwise.


I, for one, find this mono-soup-istic view quite subjective.
