Spider Man Ramen

It’s near the end of the workday, so I’m probably hungry. Actually, I’m almost always hungry, but that’s a metabolism story for another time. Instead, let me introduce you to the amazing bit of commercially-geared whimsy that I just spotted in the ultra-hip journal KoreAm: The Ramen Box, a mix-and-match sodium fest delivered to your door (for a fee, no more than $1.50/ramen pack all told). If this has been already made the Internet rounds, I missed it. I apologize. I was probably gnawing on my salt lick.
