I've just found out something horrible. Joey Ramone has died. As you all no doubt know, Joey Ramone was the inventor of Ramone Brand Noodles. This inexpensive, easy to prepare meal has been the staple of poor college students and the budget-minded almost since its inception. Ramone noodles have not always had an easy time of it, however. The included "flavor packets" challenged mainstream society's long-cherished definition of what "flavor" really meant, boiling down formerly complex vistas of taste into simplistic, bare-boned packages of powder. The varieties of Ramone noodles ranged all over the spectrum of the epicurial palette, from the classic "chicken" to the more underground "fiesta beef". But regardless of which you happened to be eating, it always had that indescribably Ramone quality to it. It's truly sad to see this revolutionary go, as I think it is safe to say that he "seasoned" all of our lives in one way or another.

Joey Ramone: One of the good dead ones.
