Man discovers ‘toxic monstrosity’ inside old can of noodles: ‘I'm thankful for my rubber gloves’

A Twitter user is going viral after sharing the contents of his "wildly corroded," 25-year-old can of noodles.

The decades-old food item was uncovered by Matt Caracappa, who runs Dinosaur Dracula, a website covering retro candies and toys. Dated to 1995, the can was meant to contain a serving of Spider-Man-branded Chef Boyardee pasta.

But what Caracappa found inside hardly resembled food at all.

Caracappa shared his findings in a Twitter thread, which began with him showcasing the can before ultimately opening it. Equipped with rubber gloves and a can opener, he eventually managed to reveal the noodles.

"They say tragedy plus time equals comedy, but there's nothing funny about 15 ounces of Spider-Man Pasta reduced to a rotted 3-ounce chunk. Recalling the fate of Jordy Verrill in Creepshow, I'm thankful for my rubber gloves," Caracappa wrote.

Caracappa managed to pry out a mass he described as a cross between "Big Thunder Mountain" and a set of alien hives from "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones." However, he ultimately managed to notice that some of the Spider-Man pasta shapes may have kept their form.

"There's poor Spider-Man, trapped in this godforsaken toxic monstrosity," he wrote.

Then, he thanked users for reading the thread, which has been retweeted more than 16,000 times.
