I was cleaning up my dinner, which was spaghetti, when I thought of how rubbery under-cooked noodles can be.
Then I had this ridiculous picture in my mind of a guy trying to chew rubber spaghetti.
It would be a great joke to put in light yellow rubber spaghetti noodles into spaghetti sauce and
serve to unsuspecting victims, who then proceed to try and chew the noodles.
And, knowing from several young children, rubber can pass through a digestive system without harm.

||I think it would be fun to give someone just one extremely long spaghetti strand on a plate. Then when the poor diner tries to spin a neat forkful of spaghetti, he will find he cannot stop until the whole contents of the plate are now hanging from his fork :)
