College students base their diets around beef, shrimp, chicken, and oriental flavored noodles.

There are better, tastier foods to purchase, such as hot pockets and bagel bites. But ramen saves money so you can buy more liquor, so who really gives a fuck.
Jess, a college student, has ramen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She's lucky that ramen exists, because if it didn't, she'd be crying from starvation and drinking no more tears shampoo.

A freeze-dried block of survival.

Contrary to popular belief, use of stove is not required to prepare this meal of many flavours. No real measurements are needed. Just a bowl, some water, the ingredients in the package and a microwave oven. Approximately 1 minute and 20 seconds on high will do the trick.
I've actually found ramen on sale for seven cents a package.

A college student's staple food, given that most of the poor kid's money will go directly towards tuition and rent.

1) Traditional Japanese noodle soup
2) Technically incorrect name for instant noodles, as they can be other types, like bah kut teh (Malay) or tom yam gung (Thai). Can be made in just a few minutes, but has some drawbacks:
-Not as healthy as real noodles, as the noodle brick was flash-fried beforehand.
-Typically loaded with MSG. When consumed in large amounts, it can make your hair gray or even fall out.
3) Something to do with "amen" and Pastafarianism, I'm not sure what exactly.
Silly person- I like ramen! I'll eat it for two years straight.

Silly person- Wowee! A natural hair dyer! I should tell my friends about this!
