    Born in Khorramshahr, Iran
    Founder of Soup Kitchen International restaurant in Manhattan (1984)
    Started franchising his store as Original Soup Man (2005)
    Inspired the Soup Nazi character on Seinfeld
    His rules for ordering soup:
    Pick the soup you want
    Have your money ready
    Move to the extreme left after ordering
    If you do not follow his rules for ordering, you will be denied service and sent to the back of the line.
    He called Seinfeld 'a stupid show, an ugly show, a low-quality show.'
    He said he wanted to slap Jerry Seinfeld across the face.
    Before he was known as the Soup Nazi, patrons nicknamed him 'the terrorist.'
    He only conducts interviews by email, and his ground rules include no mention of Seinfeld or the Soup Nazi, no personal questions and no follow-up questions.
    Just because a guy is a stickler for rules is no reason to call him a Nazi.
    He justified his rules, pointing out, 'I have a very small space. The customers line up around the block in the freezing cold... I can't keep other customers waiting.'
    His franchising partner said, 'Al is obviously temperamental, but he's an artist.'
    He makes a damn good soup.
