There's chicken soup, turkey soup, beef soup, but no pork soup. What gives?

I'm a big pork fan and I've just realized that there's no such thing as pork soup. I am shocked and outraged at this apparent culinary oversight. OR could this be an opportunity to make El Puerco Brand Pork Soup a household name? Hmmm...

        Tonkatsu ramen is a pork broth ramen made from pork bones.

          GT is correct. ton-kOtsu (Pork-bone) as in broth
          ton-kAtsu (Pork cutlet) as in wienerschnitzel

          common mistake

      2. Lots of Asian soups have pork.
