Crafting your Gift Message (or not)
snapster busted out the gifs said9
We heard some hilarious gift messages in Drop One and we’re hoping to inspire even more creativity here for Drop Two.
Here are a few pointers that might help those of you with writers block:
- PastaDrops are labeled as “a friend sent you this” on the box and the packing slip is otherwise anonymous without your gift message.
- As the amount of pasta is not known to you; asking your friend to tell you how much they got is a good base idea.
- Descriptions of us, the concept and website as “really stupid” may help lower your apprehension
- Puns like sending noods or plays on the style of pasta are another good basic tip.
- Starting a CARE Package war with PastaDrops or other packages is some next level stuff we seem to have tapped into here.
- “NOODLES, BITCHES” is not right for everyone (but ok it’s apparently perfect for some of you)
- No gift message works just fine and does not leave an obvious omission; perhaps a WTF mystery gift is the right choice for you
- You have “Twitter Length” 280 characters to work with, which will become apparent when you order and try to type your next novel
Proud of your Gift Message? You can share it if you want, but also feel free to preserve it for revealing along with any reaction.
Have any ideas for others?

Pasta la vista, baby!
This goes inside of you!
@medz I’ve sent several other anonymous gifts with that message before.
I wish I’d read this before I sent mine. I just told my friend to get carb loading for yoga after the pandemic. I’m goig to start working on a tome for next time!
Hope you choke on it!
-Your ex spouse
@medz Ha, that had me LOL for real.
If my love for you could be quantified in pasta, it would be exactly this amount.
@medz Aww… Thanks, medz.
@Barney @medz pretty ballsy if you don’t know the quantity…!
Please make the shipping address drop-down show the name instead of the first line of the address. Also, maybe add a checkbox to ‘save gift message’ for next time.
@caffeineguy that would look weird as a gift message.

@caffeineguy @Ignorant @narfcake I came here to say this, and I wish the noods would get here sooner because I sent a box to my son and his birthday is this Thursday. But noods won’t be here in time, though I think they’d be a great birthday present.
@caffeineguy @melwin @narfcake the one thing kids want for their birthdays is parental noods.
@caffeineguy @Ignorant @narfcake Right? He’s going to tell all his friends his mom sent him noods for his birthday.
Maybe it’s a good thing they won’t be here until after his birthday.
Merry Pastmas Bitches!!!
“This is so things don’t get pasta point of no return.”
Here’s something to go with all that Awesome Sauce you be dishin’ out!
VAN GOGH! MANGO! TANGO! AWESOME!
Don’t even think of opening this!!!
Merry Xmas 2012!
From the guys in FBI van #6.
I’m wondering who my sister will think sent this- our grandparents are dead, or she’d probably be wondering how they got on the internet.
“Here have some pasta, you’re skin and bones! Just like your father- he don’t know how to eat either!”
I’ve been just sending them out with “Unsolicited noods”
PASTA ME! PASTA ME! NO PASTA YOU!
I WANT THE NOODS! YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE NOODS!
PENNE! WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN PENNE!
Penne is one of my favorite noods.
@natekimh for a moment I thought this a @mediocrebot post, but it wasn’t a reply
I sent my Mom some noods, and she and my uncle had no idea who it was from because they said there was no message? Shouldn’t she have gotten a coupon code per the FAQ?
Enjoy my noods.
life is full of pasta-bilities. enjoy!
Not the Nudes you deserve but the Noods you need
I sent some penne to my stepdaughter.
Her message said:
Remember when you called me your dad’s old lady, revenge is best served with noodles.
Of course if she doesn’t get a bunch of noodles, it doesn’t work really
Mine was “Stock up on Garlic Bread!”
I stole my note from the interwebs but it makes sense…
Every time I watch Lady and the Tramp I think: SHE’S HAVING SOME OF YOUR PASTA! QUICK EAT IT ALL! EAT IT ALL NOW! GROWL! BARE YOUR TEETH! DO SOMETHING! OH NO, DON’T GIVER HER THE MEATBALL! THERE’S MEAT IN IT! IDIOT! But then again I’m not the romantic type. - Every dog
I was in a hurry. I just said “Happy pasta”.
I sent one to a friend who has two cats. the note said “I traded [cat 1] for carbs. Hope that’s cool. Just put [cat 1] in the box and my crew will be by to collect him later. Love, [cat 2]” and the other I sent as a “prize” for an “online Nudes with Food photo contest.” Told him the box[es?] contained his costume for the photoshoot he won and all he had to do was boil it. The concept for his ‘photoshoot’ is ‘Spaghetti and Meet My Balls.’ mic drop martini sip
Sent a drop to someone who can’t eat pasta. Message read something like hopefully this doesn’t bother you more than it should (almost signed it irk. Bit used our imaginary coworker’s name that is the goat around the house)
@moonhat is to blame!
@mediocrebot @moonhat even here?? Damnit moo-n-hat
@mediocrebot @sohmageek I’m here! And no fair calling me a cow! WAAAA
@mediocrebot @moonhat it’s not MooNHat? Mooing hat? I thought it was a pun…
I’ve sent two:
to my brother who is fairly health conscious and doesn’t over consume carbs: “Enjoy Bulk Season”
