Thread: Too many noodles

  1. #1
    Guest
    Got this in an email, thought it was hilarious:

    While grocery shopping recently, I noticed that in addition to Chicken Noodle and Double Noodle soups, Campbell's is now making MEGA Noodle soup. Rumor has it they're developing a new soup called SWEET JESUS THERE ARE TOO MANY NOODLES soup. Is there any room for the broth in the Mega Noodle soup, or is it just one giant block of slimy noodles which must be reconstituted in your bathtub? I had so many questions that I fired off this prank e-mail to Campbell's:


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    DEAR CAMPEBLL:

    FOR MANY YEARS MY 92 YR OLD MOTHER AND I HAVE ENJOYED YOUR SOUPS INCLUDING CHICKEN AND MOONS, SPLIT PEA WITH PORK, AND MISO...MY MOTHERS FAVORITE IS DOUBLE NOODLE BUT THE STORE WAS OUT SO WE TRIED MEGA NOODLE...

    MY MOTHER HAS SEVER ARTRITIS SO SHE HAD TO USE HER ELECTRIC CAN OPENER...SPENT 15 MINS TRYING TO OPEN MEGA NOODLE...FINALLY I HEARD A HUGE POP!!! AND CAME IN TO FIND HER LYING ON THE FLOOR BLEEDING...THE LID HAD EXPLODED OFF THE CAN AND STRUCK HER IN THE FOREHEAD!!! TOO MANY NOODLES!1! TOO MANY, CAMPBELL'S!!!

    I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED BY MEGA NOODLE AND BY YOUR DANGEROUS PACKAGING AND AM CONSIDERING LEGIL ACTION! I ASK FOR A REPLY AT ONCE!!!!!

    I received a response from the Campbell's people, whom I pictured waist-deep in noodles, trying to brush away the slimy pasta from their computer monitors with rubber gloves:

    Chunky Soup is, of course, made by Campbell's.

    Their response to my threat:

    Mr. Jim Ohn-Hargrave, we received your message and appreciate your taking the time to contact Campbell Soup Company.

    Again, thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Mega Noodle was developed in response to consumer requests for soups with even more noodles than the regular or double noodle varieties offer. We try to offer as many different products as possible to satisfy as many consumers as possible. Unfortunately, not all products meet all consumers preferences.

    Thank you for visiting the Campbell Soup Company web-site.

    I dunno, that prank email is kinda mean. You're wasting other peoples' time In a related thing, I had an ACTUAL stupid damage problem. I had batteries in one of those cool firemen's/diving flashlights. Some sort of gas built up in it (since it was airtight) and exploded like a mini bomb. The flashlight was in the closet, and shrapnel shredded the dress I had hanging next to it, as well as an umbrella. Shrapnel was also embedded in the door. My roommates and I were lucky we were eating dinner in another room when it went off. I had just gone in there to get pictures to show everyone at the table. All in all, I had to send the dress, umbrella, flashlight bits, and scary exploded batteries to their investigation center. I got coupons for $40 of free batteries, the retail price of the dress and umbrella, and a new flashlight from the company that made it. The flashlight had some sort of pellets that absorbed the dangerous gasses. So I actually got to say "Gee mom, sorry I can't wear a dress to that event. My flashlight exploded and destroyed it!"
    A flytrap ate my homework!

    When tweedle beetles battle, it's a tweedle beetle battle.
    when they battle with a paddle, it's a tweedle beetle paddle battle
    when the battle's in a puddle, it's a tweedle beetle puddle paddle battle
    when the battle's in a puddle, and the puddle's on a poodle, and the poodle's eating noodles, it's a tweedle beetle noodle-poodle puddle paddle battle.
