Can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli + lava = fun (video)

A guy in Hawaii thought it might be fun to film what happens to a can of Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli when placed in the path of a lava flow.



I love this stuff.

One piece of ravioli (one raviolo?) landed 30 feet away :)

    Pele was just pissed off it was a tin of ravioli someone left for her and not a bottle of tequila.

    That’s one alternative to a microwave.

    Better blow on it first; it’s kinda hot.

    And yes, the lava flow did burp after engulfing the can. The displaced air has to go somewhere. On a larger scale, this is what forms lava tubes, those interesting tunnels and passages left behind by air pockets engulfed by rapidly flowing lava. When you go to the Oregon Coast, stop off in Depoe Bay. Just to the west of Highway 101 there is a lava formation with many tubes, and as the tide comes it, the water forces through and spouts up in some fascinating blasts.

    I actually met Chef Boyardee. His real name was Hector Boiardi, and he had a restaurant in Cleveland. My grandfather knew him, and once when we went to a Cleveland Indians game, he took us there for lunch. Now, that’s a claim to fame, huh?

    There are people starving in Biafra that could have lived another day but for that can of .. who am I kidding, that was great!

    I loved the burp, but that was a strange thing to do. Of course, I do a lot of weird stuff.

    Did I just see the lava flow “burp,” after swallowing the entire can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli?
