Despite this fact, it has attained a near cult-like following. Due to it's strong flavor, high caloric content, and highly inexpensive nature, it is a staple food of the poor. Trailer trash, starving artists, and college students can all bond over their love for and utter dependence on this abomination.
If I love it so much, why call it an abomination? Simple.

You see why I'm upset? I was in my mid-twenties before I even knew ramen could be that way.
Still, there's an art to eating poor, and it's fascinating how many variations can be done with such a simple food. My favorite? I'm glad you asked.
Adam's Special Ramen
- Makes one vat.
4 packs of oriental flavored ramen.
1 cup of spaghetti sauce.
1/3 cup of sour cream.
1 sweet onion.
1 green bell pepper.
Mix the the spices from the ramen in a bowl with the spaghetti sauce and sour cream.
Chunk the potato and boil it in a pot. Chop the onion and put it in with the potato. Chop the pepper and add it last. The pepper takes the least time to cook, and you don't want to overdo it. Once it's all done, mix it with the sauce.
Cook the noodles separately, then add the sauce to taste.
