#33. Oodles of Noodles

ramen-oodles-noodleIf you are not a Black Person but are perhaps a college student without a Trust Fund or Hedge Fund, you may be familiar with an inexpensive food item known as “Ramen Noodles“.

However, calling these noodles by that name around Black People is completely unacceptable and could result in anything from blank stares to a kick in the genitals. If you are around Black People you can only refer to this food item as “Oodles of Noodles”.

Many Black Families live on or below the poverty line and are usually forced to be extremely picky when it comes to buying food that is low cost and relatively tasty. These noodles are the perfect choice for such a narrow criteria.  They are extremely cheap in cost and can be found in virtually any store or gas station.

However, why Black People have taken to calling this item “Oodles of Noodles” instead of That Other Name We Do Not Speak Of is a bit of a mystery and could only be a result of Black People’s inherent sense of creativity that caused them to adopt this alternate name.

If you actually know a Black Person and decide to invite them over to your home and they get hungry, be sure to have a few packages of these noodles around just in case, so no Black Person can resist a free offering of “Oodles of Noodles”. Those who have tried have failed. Miserably.
