“What did the worm say when he fell in a plate of spaghetti?"/"Orgy!”

Spaghetti can look like worms—or more specifically, a worm orgy. “Desda el punto de vista de una lombriz, un plato de espaguetis es una orgia” ("From a worm’s point of view, a plate of spaghetti is an orgy") was printed in the 1998 book Patas arriba: La escuela del mundo al revés (Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World) by Uruguayan journalist, writer and novelist Eduardo Galeano (1940-2015).

“What did the worm say when he fell in a plate of spaghetti? ‘Orgy!’” was posted on Twitter by Sickipedia_Feed on August 16, 2011. The joke originated on the Sickipedia website. “What did the worm say when he fell in a plate of spaghetti?  ‘Orgy!’” was posted on Twitter by funny humour on August 17, 2011.

16 April 1999, Santa Fe (NM) New Mexican, “Triumph Over Oppression” by Ruth Lopez, pg. P-58, col. 5:
Eduardo Galeano: (...) Inevitably one situates oneself in a point of view in order to see reality and everything depends on this point of view. According to what the worms have told me, from their point of view, a plate of spaghetti is an orgy.

(...)
In Galeano’s new book, Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World (Metropolitan, 358 pp., $24), the concerns that seep into each of his books are on full display: the way the powerful trample the powerless, multinational corporations upend the less privileged, and dictators and democracy erase history and pesky citizens.
(...)
Galeano writes from the point of view of a working-class boy, self-educated, at once wounded and wise, with a survivalist’s appetite for life. “Point of view is essential to writing, to life,” he says, leaning forward on his hotel couch while in New York to read from Upside Down. “I used to say that from the point of view of a worm, a spaghetti dish is an orgy.”

Did you hear about the worm who fell in a bowl of spaghetti? He thought he was at a Roman orgy.
