Maybe that is why he leaved so long? They do taste good.

oooh maaann.... I think this almost brought me to tears...


It's funny though, my friends from Asia always call Ramen noodle's "white man's 'ramen' crap" or something to that extent. I guess they never knew that he was Japanese, I certainly didn't.

It might be white man's ramen crap, but damned if it isn't good.

Every bachellor, high school student, and college student owes alot to this man.

Wally, I know how you feel. As sad what I'm saying might sound, it really was a downer for me :(

I heard this on the radio while sitting at Sonic.

Almost made me cancel my order and go buy Ramen Noodles.

RIP

Tomorrow I'm going to eat nothing but ramen as a tribute to this man and his great invention.

Then again, that's not too far from what I normally do.

@ The Seeker: That's the truth.

Many a night i have stayed up playing games and eating Ramen noodles as a food supply. My sister lives off of them only cuz her cooking skills are really bad. and by bad i mean burning microwavable mac and cheese...
