R.I.P Mr. Ramen Noodle inventor

Mr. Momofuku Ando, the somewhat creepy looking man above holding what was left of his liver, was the creator of instant noodles and founder of Nissin Food Products. He was responsible for all those sodium-laden noodle cups we've all enjoyed. No one really knows how many college students and missionaries he is responsible for keeping alive during his 96 year tenure here on Earth. But I'm sure it was a lot.

So tonight, le's all raise a cup of steamy, previously freeze dried noodles in honor of Mr. Ando. Momofuku, you will be missed.
