- Macaroni is spaghetti that has been moulded into a different shape by Marconi, using a Morse alphabet. In this primitive form of communication, there are essentially only two shapes, a dot-shape (tubetti) and a dash-shape (penne linguini). The first tests of this system, made atop Newfoundland's Signal Hill in 1901, worked well initially. Unfortunately, the message degraded rapidly as the noodles became soggy. The original Macaroni system of radio telegraphy is therefore no longer monitored, and has been supplanted by TV Dinners.
