Macaroni

Macaroni, a dandy, originally a member of the Macaroni Club established in London about the middle of the 18th century. . Its founders had travelled in Italy, and introduced Italian macaroni into England; hence their name. They wore long curls and "spying-glasses," and were much given to drinking, gambling, and other fashionable vices. The Italian macaroni is wheaten paste, forced by great pressure into a pipe-like form.

“It is most profitable, it is blessed, to be always looking beyond second causes in all our trials and distresses, and to discern the Lord's hand, in infinite love and wisdom, appointing all. For this brings the soul into a state of resignation and tranquility at least, if not of holy Joy.”
–Robert Hawker, Poor Man’s Commentary, Psalm 17
