The expression "sour grapes" originated in Aesop’s fable "The Fox and the Grapes." In it, the fox really wants to eat some grapes hanging from a tree, but after numerous attempts, he realizes he will not be able to reach them. He finally gives up and wanders away, remarking, "Oh, you aren't even ripe yet! I don't need any sour grapes," as he leaves. Thus, "sour grapes" is a phrase that refers to the act of pretending not to care for something that one wants, but does not or cannot have.
