Good Mourning Masako Ando (Mrs. Momofuku Ando)

"On this day we'd like to extend a 'thank you' to Mr. Ando. Money was tight during undergrad and it was nice to always have a nice pack of creamy chicken Ramen to fall on. So thank you, Mr. Ando, it's appreciated."

Good Mourning Widows.
Joy to you and me.
Today we welcome famous widow Masako Ando wife of famous inventor of instant noodles and Nissin Foods Momofuku Ando to our JOY-ful club.
That's right Widows. The club ain't nobody wants to joy-n. The club what costs one husband -- YOURS! -- to joy-n.
Sorry. All sales final. No returns. No refunds.
Momofuku Ando died January 7, 2007 at age 96.
"Faced with food shortages in Post World War II Japan, Ando developed the idea that a quality, convenient noodle product would help feed the masses."
Masako is left with her two sons and a daughter to stand by her.
Mourning Joy:
A man decided he needed a pet so he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. He finally bought a talking centipede, which came in a little box. He took the box home, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to temple. So he asked the centipede "Would you like to go to temple with me today?" There was no answer from his new pet. He waited a few minutes and then asked again, "How about going to temple with me." Again there was no answer. He waited a few mintues more and he decided to ask him one more time; putting his face up against the centipede's house he shouted, "Hey, in there! Would you like to go to temple with me and learn about G_d!?" A little voice came out of the box, "I heard you the first time! I'm putting on my shoes."

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
Write something.
Write anything.
Just write.
Go ahead.
I dare you!
Note to Masako: Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
To all Widows: Have a joy-ful day.
And remember, we're not alone.
