: I would like to know the meaning of a saying, "who has a ladle has everybody his friend".
My guess. Someone who has a ladle (see
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ladle ) is in the position of being able to "dish out" soup, etc. So everyone wants to be his friend and be in line for a bowlful.
