OTP - Onion, Tomato, Potato & Cry? In the yore of days, an Onion, a Tomato and a Potato were bosom friends. But a couple came and began to dice the Potato that had numerous “eyes”. By seeing their pal dying, Onion and Tomato began to weep & cry. And then, the couple began chopping Tomato into tiny pieces and could not stand it: the Onion cried a lot seeing his another friend dying. After chopping the Tomato, the couple was about to cut the Onion. Onion turned helpless and so prayed to God Almighty that it wanted someone to cry for his death, because it had cried for the death of his friends Potato & Tomato and it did not want to die without getting mourning. So, God Almighty listened to fervent prayer of the Onion and granted it’s wish and therefore human couples cried when the onion was diced or chopped.
