The Noodle Incident is something from the past that is sometimes referred to but never explained, with the implication that [[CrazyAwesome it's just too ludicrous for words]] - or perhaps too offensive for depiction - and the reality that any explanation would fall short of audience expectations. Questions about it are often met with "[[YouDoNOTWantToKnow You Don't Want To Know…]]" Persisting is a good way to press a character's BerserkButton.

Commonly introduced to the audience by having characters react to some fantastic and improbable event with "[[OhNoNotAgain Oh no, not again]]." The key to this trope is that the audience is left to imagine what happened based on vague hints or clues, with [[RuleOfFunny funny]] (or [[NothingIsScarier scary]]) results.

Naturally, this trope is a good source of FanficFuel. Often overlaps with GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

GettingCrapPastTheRadar. Contrast with RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun, which is where the reminiscence is anything ''but'' ambiguous.

Has nothing Not to do be confused with [[Administrivia/TheGoogleIncident either]] [[Administrivia/TheSecondGoogleIncident of]] our little problems with Tropers/TheAdvertisementServer.Administrivia/TheGoogleIncident ([[Administrivia/TheSecondGoogleIncident or the second one]]), although you might get this vibe from some tropers.
