315 – Noodle Incident

315 – Noodle Incident

True story. I have set water on fire (before putting the macaroni in the pot). My cooking skills have come a long way since then.

Also, hooray for a built-in way to mess with the “noodle incident” concept!

    Hurah for C&H reference. Also, you sure it wasn’t the stuff IN the water, because I’m pretty sure water physically CAN’T catch fire (insert long rant on the chemistry of fire)

    Maybe you angered the Flying Spaghetti Monster sometime in your past? 🙂

    I have actually managed to melt the cookware.

    I feel your pain.

    My ex set my tea kettle on fire before. It was an electric teakettle and she put it on a burner. The rubber started melting and it was horrible.

    Well, you actually CAN set water on fire, but that would require tremendous amounts of heat (about 9k degrees C), and unless your stove is superman… no…. Although, i am interested, what did happen?

  7. Domo says:

    I’d prefer it if you didn’t tell us what you did to set water on fire: it would become so less interesting if we knew

    It’s a Noodle Incident? But we know what is is!

  9. styg says:

    I wonder which of the Noodle Incident, the Spaghetti Incident and the Linguine Incident happened first.

    Worst I’ve ever done is set a toaster on fire. While on a school trip. During lunch.

  11. fangrider says:

    i think weve all set our own share of toasters on fire……

    Wait, based on the box, that should be the macaroni and cheese incident.

    Based on what is in panel 2, someone probably put oil into an overfilled pot, oil floats, drips down the side of the pot once the water boils to the ignition source, flame climbs up the oil trail… voila, flaming pot. I’d have to ask, in the comic, how long ago was this, since Penny looks pretty much the same.

    I once melted a chicken breast, thats right melted, I put the frozen chicken in a barbecue set to high … and then forgot to turn it down after a few min, and then completely forget about it. It looked like black glass/plastic when it cooled, but it was definitely molten when it i remembered about it.
