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 SoraNews24.com, 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!

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 ..it 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 🙂

  2. That is A LOT of ramen. Yikes! Following the 70s food Twitter account now… 🙂

  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…”

  4. Not sure how I feel about the noodle bath.

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

  6. I love that ‘mermaid’ in the noodle bath. She’s gorgeous! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
