…Use Your Noodle


This week a ramen heist worth $98,000 has been mixing up the monotony of the news cycle. Three weeks after the robbery, the ramen has yet to be found. Making it hard not to wonder what actually happened.

It’s unlikely that someone would purposely target a shipment of ramen, but it sure does make for a better story. While college students seem like a likely culprit, that’s a lot of ramen, even for undergrads.

With the average ramen packet costing between 10 to 25 cents, the stollen ramen would take one individual eating three ramen meals a day over 350 years to consume.

Personally, I like to imagine there’s a ramen Robin Hood stealing from the rich(ish) and giving to the poor. It could certainly explain why the stolen merchandise has yet to be found.

Plus, doesn’t it warm your heart (and raise your blood pressure) to think of all that ramen doing some good.

Ride on, ramen Robin Hood! Ride on!
