Not quite sure that this has anything to do with marketing/advertising, but let us all observe a moment of silence for Momofuko Ando
, who died in Japan at the age of 96. You've probably never heard of Momofuko, but he probably has touched your life at some point. He was the inventor of ramen noodles. The Times
