Amply proving that students have way too much time on their hands, several undergraduates from Kanagawa University spent three hours on Sunday making a 60-metre noodle. A rather unusual endeavour it has to be said, but one designed to draw attention to the town of Takamatsu – a place once renowned for its udon noodles. A feat that they seem to have pulled off quite successfully.
Unfortunately, the downside to being a student – namely a lack of funds – also played its part in the proceedings. Whilst the mammoth measurement of 60-metres would have made it the longest noodle in the world, the udon-loving undergraduates couldn’t rustle up enough money to apply to the Guinness Book of Records.
So instead they just ate it. Although with what wasn’t disclosed.
