Hot Dog Hair! Ramen Noodle Bathing! Plus Three More Reasons To Love The Internet’s Wacky Food Obsession!

Why do I love the internet? Let me count the ways – well, 5 in particular – 5 unique foodie things that live on the internet that make all of that browsing worth BROWSING!

#5 – A 70’s Dinner Party!

Yes, there is a Twitter account that celebrates food from the 70’s called “70’s Dinner Party”, and they share a wide variety of hilarious looking food from the decade of disco – did people REALLY serve this to guests at a party?

Well, if they didn’t they should talk to someone at Twitter right now – or just follow the action and see lots of hilarious photos of bad bad food.

Here is the link:

You know, bad food ideas get even worse at the holidays:

Yes, there is an entire Christmas meal in a can – or is there? I shared some wild holiday recipes from the past that may or may not be real – you can see them all here:

Next up, one of the most entertaining people I have found on the internet!

#4 – Meet Mr. Sato! He’ll Eat Anything!

Thanks to the website, we can all follow the adventures of Mr. Sato, their intrepid Reporter who has covered stuff like this:

Yes, Mr. Sato ordered, then ate, a Whopper with 1,500 strips of bacon. Why? Because he’s Mr. Sato and he is hilariously adventurous!

Click here to see more of his misadventures:

Of course, sometimes the best food isn’t the stuff you eat, it’s the stuff you bathe in!

#3 – Ramen Noodle Bathing!

The internet ensures that I know about ALL of the biggest food trends around the world, like “ramen noodle bathing” from Japan!

Yes, it is real – and real friendly as you can see:

Don’t laugh – apparently the broth is very good for your skin!

You can see more pictures of people bathing in their noodles here, along with other wacky Japanese food trends:

I consider these people to be pioneers – and sometimes to be pioneer you just need to be a bit crazy, and willing to do things that others just won’t do – like wear this:

#2 – Wearable Food!

Yes, you too can relax with a glass of fine wine – while wearing a Shrimp Tempura onesie! Trust me, there is more where this came from and you can see them here:

My final offering in the “what will the internet do to food next?” category is so simple I can’t believe I haven’t seen it before:

1 – Hotdog Hair Rollers!

A new fashion trend? The new “best way” to curl your hair? A just a work of culinary art? Who knows, who cares! When I come across shots like this I know the world is OK, and that everything we see online is true – as proved by this quote from Abraham Lincoln:

Let me know if you’ve found any unique food stories online you want me to share – and keep bathing!

  1. Bathing in noodles would be so gross and sharing a bath used to be a tub in front of the fire and God help the one who was the last one in…Come on WP we need a haha button …it made me smile and cringe 🙂 Good post, John 🙂

  3. How can Mr Sato not weigh 1,500 pounds? Did he spend a night in the ER after his Whopper bacon repast? I can see the sushi tempura onesie flying off the shelves this Halloween. Spirit stores be forwarned.As Todd Rundgren in his infinite wisdom penned: “…And you just don’t know what people will do next…”

  5. Oh, and yes, 70s dinner party food was often unspeakable. We used to play safe, and serve a fondue! 🙂

    Best wishes, Pete.
