No tears on this one - but I hear if you get a really powerful one and you start to feel the tears - stick your head in the freezer for a few seconds and it's supposed to help? Bobby Flay said that once during a taping of Boy Meets Grill - he started chopping an onion and instantly the tears started rolling!
