Haven't you ever seen Lady and the Tramp? Noodles have the power to bring you closer to the one you love. The very moment you start eating noodles, you are transported to a place where your knight in shining armor is on the other side of the plate, about to eat the very same noodle from the other end. You will kiss and then you will have HappilyEverAfter. It's true.
And butter? It tastes good. It has the added benefit of keeping the noodles from sticking together so the romance won't be hindered by clumps of noodles hanging between two people who only want to kiss each other, not clumps of noodles.
Remember- you heard it here first.
