Even Ramen Noodle Soup is Now Politically Correct

Reality is bleeding into and outpacing the dystopian visions of my writer's mind. I remember once thinking fleetingly that it's not very PC to call your ramen soup "Oriental," only to discover that Nissin, the manufacturer of Top Ramen, has now in fact renamed that flavor "Soy Sauce."

In this monologue, I have a little fun investigating the backstory while enjoying a Golden Road "Point the Way" IPA.
