    Default noodling

    So I was just noodling around on the Internets this morning when,
    apropos nothing, D says to me: "Wouldn't it be great if there was a
    restaurant called the International House of Noodles?"

    That idea, I believe, goes a long way towards explaining why we've
    been married so long.

    There are plenty of restaurants called "House of Noodles", some of which
    offer a variety beyond various Asian noodles. Just the name is missing.

    There used to be a restaurant around here called "Nothing But Noodles".
    Their timing was unfortunate. Their grand opening came during the
    Atkins craze.

    If anybody tried that, they would certainly get sued
    by the International House of Pancakes.

    It would hardly be the same venue.

    International House of Coffee
    International House of Barbecue
    International House of Wine and Cheese
    International House of Crepes
    International House of Chicken
    International House of Food
    .....

    Our local "Yen Ching Noodle House" just closed. I ate there for the
    first time a couple days before they closed. They had been there
    for decades.

    The brother of a friend of mine has a business
    making some kind of thing for bicyclists, and
    he created a logo that was the name of the company
    in stretched-out letters. He was threatened with
    a lawsuit by the Everlast company, which makes
    various sportswear items with a logo that features
    stretched out letters. They're stretched out
    in a different way, and the name of his company
    is nothing like "Everlast", but they threatened him
    anyway. He talked with a lawyer who told him to
    just ignore it. Their case was so weak they wouldn't
    win and the threat was probably empty.

    I'm not saying IHOP could win against the hypothetical
    IHON, but they would have a much stronger case.
    If there were one mom-and-pop IHON, they might not
    sue, but if it were a chain or franchise they most
    certainly would, and they might win. For example,
    on the grounds of trademark dilution.

    This sort of thing has been going on longer than we like to think.

    There is a place called "My Noodlehouse" about three minutes' walk from
    my digs. They serve ramen-type noodles.

    It's intriguing to imagine the menu. You could arrange it by
    continents, countries, regions, or by types of flour, or by noodle
    shapes, or by cooking methods, or by fresh or dried, or by soup/salad/
    side dish/main dish/dessert, or .....? -aem

    A menu structured according to cuisines came to mind. That would
    leave room for anything from US macaroni and cheese (okay, T.
    Jefferson reportedly imported that from Europe back in the day, but
    it's Murrikan now) to a range of Italian pastas to German to assorted
    Chinese to Thai to Vietnamese to Japanese to ??? and beyond.

    Apparently there are Peruvian noodles, though I've never had them. And
    a Mexican noodle soup which I've never had

    We got stuck on couscous. It's pasta, but not really noodles.

    Incidentally, I just found a site for something called the Noodle
    Company which offers a wide, but not exhaustive variety of noodles
    from assorted national cuisines. I'm not going to include the URL
    because Teranews holds up my posts for a day or so when I include URLs
    -- checking for abuse, apparently. Google noodle to find it. But the
    site is very flash-intensive and didn't work well in Firefox for me.

    You're joking, right?

    Results 1 - 10 of about 18,400,000 for "noodle"

    That's 18 *million* references to 'noodle' google (for those who
    have trouble counting that many commas).

    Couldn't you disguise the URL somehow, like www dot noodles dot com?

    I was going to suggest that -- they have a couple of places in town.
    Food gets prepared after you order; nothing gourmet but quite tasty
    and the price is right.
