Difference between See you in the soup and See you in the soup line

see you in the soup(Austral. sl.) see you around (a form of farewell):

  • Cheers all, see you in the soup a few weeks from now. Have a great vacation!

Note: The expression does not correlate in meaning with the phrase be in the soup—(coll.) be in a difficult situation:

  • The school finally phoned my mom and asked why I was absent. Boy, I really thought I was in the soup!

see you in the soup linea sarcastic prediction that one might find himself on welfare (originally of a queue of poor people waiting to receive food as charity):

  • Forty years of debt based government economics ain’t going to make a lie the truth. I’ll see you in the soup line in 15–20 years.
