New Jersey: More than 500 pounds of cooked pasta dumped in the woods | US News
Hundreds of pounds of cooked pasta were inexplicably dumped in a river basin forest.
At least half a dozen huge piles of pasta were left in a lawn along a river in Old Bridge, New Jersey. There was spaghetti, macaroni and various other types of pasta mixed, without sauce.
Pictures of the mystery pasta, which is estimated to be worth more than £500, were shared on the OLD BRIDGE New Jersey Facebook group on Friday.
‘As my friend called it, a ‘Mission Impasteable’!!!’ wrote Nina Jochnowitz for the group.
The noodles were left beside the streams crossing Mimi and Hilliard.
Many community members weren’t entirely shocked by the strange development.
“No wonder when we see how construction and other rubbish is dumped in all parts of the city,” wrote Jochnowitz. “This week there was a new way of dumping overeating, PASTA.”
She added that the community heard or read the news and “reacted with a quick cleanup of the river basin and noodle dump.”
Community members also cleaned up other trash that had been thrown into the pool. Jochnowitz thanked the entire team with public works – while also calling out the mayor’s apparent negligence regarding a larger issue at hand.
“The mayor and his girls continue to ignore the Sixth District,” Jochnowitz wrote.
“Although it has been reported to our community manager (me) and I think someone has escalated my input on this to the No-Can-Do mayor knows … and his CaL girls they will ignore this food junk.”
It’s not the first time food has been found in an unusual place.
In August, a semi-trailer truck carrying hundreds of jars of Bertolli Alfredo sauce crashed on Interstate 55 in Tennessee, and the sauce spilled down all northbound lanes, disrupting traffic.
