They should dehydrate him and put him in a foam cup,shrink rap it and bury it.

It would do him justice.

Imagine how many thousands of poor students have subsisted on his noodles? As I recall, they used to be ten packages for a dollar! My friend Tony lived on them for about a year when he first moved to San Francisco.

ALOHA!!

MOTTO TO LIVE BY:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

WOO HOO!!, what a ride!!!"

One of the last things he helped create before he retired were Ramen MRE's for the astronauts. Ramen in space.

We always have a batch of them in our pantry. When they are 10 for a dollar we go all out.
