Pot Noodle

I've just had my first Pot Noodle since the 80s. I chose the Chicken & Mushroom variety as my medium for nostalgic transportation. Why do I feel the urge to don a sports jacket and tight jeans and go and stand under a lampost with a football under my arm?

Re: Pot Noodle

Cant say I've ever been a fan as the smell is enough to put me off.
Had to go on a trip for a business course I did in Sixth Form to Manchester and ended up staying in a room with a guy that was a pot noodle addict.
I was gipping constantly, that was one long week!

Re: Pot Noodle

I can guess what it means, in context, but I've never heard of 'gipping' - is it a local dialect word?

Re: Pot Noodle

Thanks Mark. I've been in (NE) Scotland for seven years now, and I've not heard that one.
Good word though - it's kind of onomatopoeic.

Re: Pot Noodle

not necessarily Scottish, there is a river in Suffolk new Stowmarket and a lot of favourite walks along the River Gipping
Also have your heard of a Gippy Tummy - or The Trots

Re: Pot Noodle

It depend on where you look for the word, it seems to have an obscure origin,  Oxford spell it Gipp, Colins Gypp.
any way, one of my Pics, Needhan Market , Suffork, the Gipping Valley Walk - Park.  Carved from a tree trunk.
Better than a Pic of pot noodle  Smiley
