Crocodile Tears

Modern English speakers use the phrase “crocodile tears” to illustrate a display of superficial or false grief, but the saying actually originates from a medieval belief that crocodile shed tears of sadness while they slain and consumed their prey. The myth dates back as far as the 14th century and comes from a book called “The Travels of Sir John Mandeville.”  -Source
