Just goes to show: No good deed goes unpunished.

Poor guys takes the time to share his opinion on public noodle eating and what does he get? It not fair. Not fair, I tell ya!
2001-08-23 12:32:20 AM  
what the fark? yea, japan's so much more stable than us, with people fighting over eating noodles in public? thats the most ludicrous shiat ever!
2001-08-23 12:33:59 AM  
God Saitama is a shiathole. Most of the really messed up crimes in Japan seem to happen there (like people getting set on fire or high-school kids killing one of their classmates). They were probably bosozoku (biker gang members).

thatd be like if someone came up to you and yelled at you for drinking water in public. they go through noodles like water i tells ya

Death to all who oppose the Ramen Noodle Empire.
2001-08-23 01:26:23 AM  
I used to be a construction worker. It sucked big-time ass.
2001-08-23 01:34:30 AM  
And what, exactly, is wrong with eating noodles in public?

Word of advice: never get between a construction worker and his chow, whatever the chow may be.

O'course, beating the man to death IS a bit extreme...
2001-08-23 01:44:16 AM  
I think the noodle manufacturer should be brought into the mix. They should develop a slurp free noodle that offends no
2001-08-23 01:59:12 AM  
that is why all I eat in public is cheese and macaroni....

cause it's the cheesiest
2001-08-23 02:07:01 AM  
Do the Japanese have an anti-slurping-in-public movement I've never heard of? Or are the noodles just a little too Korean for them to tolerate in public?
2001-08-23 02:27:43 AM  
I think this is a case of the construction workers understandably mistaking him for an insane person. They were just defending themselves.
2001-08-23 02:56:41 AM  
AHH...a dead jap....That would make my pappy so happy if he was still alive. He had some weird war time jungle stories to tell about them...
2001-08-23 03:29:32 AM  
I think that the Japanese consider eating in public rude. Still if the guy is on the job, where else can he eat.
2001-08-23 05:48:39 AM  
Ramen noodles from Japan kick ass.The seasoning is better and the noodles are more varied.
2001-08-23 05:49:19 AM  
I doubt it was the noodles that set him off. The other guy was probably wearing an earring.
2001-08-23 05:49:28 AM  
Ahh,Mainichi,home of the WaiWai tabloid section.Very strange stuff...
2001-08-23 05:54:46 AM  
Bongoman: probably. That was my guess.

Thus began...The Ramen Murders. (It was probably the MSG that set him off.)

Man beaten to death for telling construction worker not to beat poodles in public.

There, that's a bit more PC.
2001-08-23 09:09:38 AM  
If they were smoking pot, none of this crazy shiat would happen.
2001-08-23 10:24:30 AM  
In 2001, lunch was beginning...
2001-08-23 10:55:02 AM  
Two words: justifiable homicide.
2001-08-23 11:17:31 AM  
Proabably offered to slurp the contruction dudes noodle
2001-08-23 11:28:03 AM  
That's why we need a law that construction workers cannot wear earrings!! I mean, you're slurping noodles, dressed like the Village People. What else ya gonna do?
2001-08-23 11:35:58 AM  
4 construction workers vs 1 homeless guy?

That's just pathetic. Seppuku all around for those 4 schmucks, they'll have no honor for the rest of their stinking lives anyway.
2001-08-23 01:14:46 PM  
mmmmmmm....were these Ramen Noodles or Cup O Noodles.
2001-08-23 01:39:07 PM  
See kids? Noodles are bad. Just say "no" to noodles!

-he who stacks pork
2001-08-23 04:25:53 PM  
Overlord sez:
They were probably bosozoku (biker gang members).

Bozo what?
2001-08-23 05:44:31 PM  
Eat noodles go to Jail!
2001-08-23 06:49:12 PM  
This is the stupidist reason to beat up someone!
2001-08-23 07:15:36 PM  
Skid Mark: Are you disrespecting the noodles? If you are I will kick your ass.
(And don't say something silly like: Haw, Haw, you can't kick my ass because this is the internet)
2001-08-23 08:39:05 PM  
Overlord: You are dead on 'bout Saitama... absolutely the armpit of Japan.. well... Excluding Roppongi of course.

similar events have occured in my household, and the household of friends and relatives... It seems that children are being beat up by other children for eating the "last" cup o' noodle, I think it is a conspiracy from the government.
