I had thought I had a Cup o' Noodles for lunch, and posted that event in a more appropriate thread. Upon close review of the cup containing the Cup o' Noodles, I realize that the product is actually called Cup Noodles. When did the "o'" go away? Or was it ever there? Or, am I experiencing some multiverse cross-talk when I recall, in my past, very clearly enjoying Cup o' Noodles? Alternately, am I confusing Lipton Cup of Soup (Cup o' Soup?) with Nissin Cup Noodles? Finally, I do miss the past (whichever multiverse this contains), where the Cup o' Noodles had the small cubes of freeze-dried chicken bits...

Apparently the "o" was there until about 1978, if some random person on Reddit is to be believed.

That or you were eating Cup-o-Noodles while reading the Berenstein Bears and hearing about the death of Mandela in the 1980s.

I am heartened to hear that there exists at least one universe where I was able to enjoy Cup-o-Noodles, with the freeze-dried chicken cubes, in a timeline that aligns with my recollections. Time to fire up a Blondie tape, or maybe Dire Straights, or perhaps the Cars...

I tried to find the Boston Ballet choreography to this by Bruce Marks from a summer long ago, but at least there's this...

Diplomacy without pressure might better yield results and cooperation, you think?

Well, that's seems to be what the Vichy government thought, and Chamberlain, in England, was of similar mind. How'd that work out?

Of course, in those days the French and English governments weren't among the potential initiators of a world war. I guess that might change things -- if, of course, you actually want one of those.

I'm going to a test writing committee with a colleague as representatives of our University.  Colleague can turn a 15 minute meeting into an hour, especially when he doesn't get his way.  I'm sort of excited to see how this is going to play out.  His section is never going to get out.
