And in the Business Section Today…

Mergers, hostile take-overs, proxy fights, and... ramen? Apparently the world of ramen and high finance have come together at last in this tawdry tale of offers and counter-offers.

Nissin Food Products Co. announced Wednesday it will launch a public tender offer for Myojo Foods Co. to help the rival instant-noodle maker stop a hostile takeover by a U.S. investment fund.

Anyone know which noodle Myojo makes? Do they even make ramen? I'm too lazy to look it up today.
