"Sopa de Macaco, Uma Delicia" (translated to "Monkey Soup, A Delicacy") is a Portuguese expression associated with a Facebook post by Brazilian resident Bettynho Zigindum, in which he is shown eating monkey soup. In early 2017, 4chan users began using the phrase "uma delicia" to mock Brazilians on the /int/ board, in a similar vein to "Designated Shitting Streets" and Alberto Barbosa.


On an unknown date, Brazilian Facebook user Bettynho Zigindum posted an image album to his personal account, which has since been removed. In the post, he mentions that his mother-in-law prepared him monkey soup and proceeds to display several pictures where a monkey is shown skinless and torn to pieces before being cooked into a soup. The earliest archived picture of the album comes from the Brazilian comedy aggregator site Arreganho, posted on March 30th, 2016 (seen below).[1]

The earliest posting of the image on 4chan comes from an /int/ post on April 28th, 2016.[2] However, the image didn't gain traction until January of the following year, when it started being posted on /int/ once again.[3] On January 14th, an /int/ user posted the picture along with the phrase "sopa de macaco uma delicia,"[4] which would be posted on several Latino hub threads during the following months (seen below).[5]

On May 6th, 2017, a Brazilian anonymous user posted a thread on /int/ ensuring that monkey soup isn't a regular dish in Brazil's cuisine, which several users then replied to with the catchphrase and various image edits.[6] The same day, two extra threads about the monkey soup were made, one of them featuring MS Paint versions of the original picture (shown below).[7][8]
