Kicker - The ramen that got away

WORLD Radio - Kicker - The ramen that got away

An accident on the shores of Lake Conway nearly give the fish a feast of carbs

PAUL BUTLER, HOST: Most fishermen have a story to tell about the one that got away! But now, some fish in Arkansas have a story like it.

They very nearly enjoyed the feast of a lifetime when a tractor-trailer veered off the road and overturned in the lake.

The driver escaped without serious injury.

The truck’s payload? Twenty-thousand pounds of dried ramen noodles!

Regrettably for the fish, the noodles did not spill out of the cargo hold.

A few wisecrackers online speculated about the value of the cargo. Here’s one: So they lost, what… “$30 worth of ramen?”

REICHARD: Hey, cheap or not, it’s one of my faves! Shrimp flavor.

BUTLER: It’s The World and Everything in It.
