Found this rather interesting story on the Beeb site today.

Do you reakon the archeologists dared each other to try them? (I bet they still tasted better than a pot-noodle!)

That’s fascinating.
But ancient noodles do spontaneously appear, you know. In our last flat, we cleared out the kitchen cupboards when we moved in, bought all-new food, but then noodles from many years ago appeared.
It was all most mysterious.

...I don’t think this proves who had them first.  It just proves who “preserved” them first.

I found noodles which me and my friend spilt behind the cooker in halls 6 years ago. We were back at uni the other month, er, “tutoring” some freshers, and decided to see if they were still there. His trainer was still in the bushes outside my old bedroom window too. I let him stay over once and his trainers smelt like rotting dogs so i threw them out the window.

They are the blessings of His Great Noodliness, the Flying Spaghetti Monster and should be revered for the holy relics they are.

Well, I would think that’s the usual way original location is “determined,” they just find the oldest spot it can be found and say it’s the most likely birthplace.
