Pizza, Get Your Piping Hot Pizza Here!

     Okay kids, today we're going to talk about pizza.  What's not to like about pizza?  It's delicious (most of the time) and it has all the food groups.  Yes, that makes it nutritious.  Don't try to tell me otherwise you health freaks.  Pizza is great.

     However....  I must admit that 2 for 1 pizza is getting under my skin.  It was kind of a cool idea when it first came out.  I remember back in the day when the 2 for 1 pizza places had two pies for the price of one anywhere else.  Being in my twenties at the time, quantity was important, so we went ga ga over 2 for 1 pizza.  But the gimmick is up.  Nowadays they still sell pizza as 2 for 1, in fact there are very few places that don't do their pricing as 2 for 1.  It's become the default position.  You have to scan the fine print or ask if you want to know how much it cost to buy one pizza.  I really don't think we're saving money on the 2 for 1 plan anymore.  Is this bothering anyone else out there?  

     I think the 2 for 1 pizza craze all came crashing down when someone tried to go with 3 for 1 pizza.  That's when the whole idea "jumped the shark" (putting some recent learning to use there my faithful readers).  Three for one?   Are you kidding me.  But I digress...  

     Why is pizza the only item that this 2 for 1 pricing scheme has taken over?  It's stupid and it is time to put an end to it before they start having 2 for 1 chicken chow mein.

     Anecdote for today:

     A very funny thing happened at Fenway Park with a slice of pizza once.  You really ought to see it on YouTube.  Here it is below.  This is after the event and the broadcasters are just returning from a commercial break when they've had time to figure out what happened.


  1. The Jack Attack is Back!

    The 2-for-1 schtick is a load of crap. I realized this years ago when I called a 2-for-1 pizza place and asked how much it would be for my two pizzas. It was something like 18 bucks. I said, "So it cost 18 dollars for a single pizza?" No. It was 12 or something like that for one. Neither of us could understand each other. I kept saying, "So then it's not 2-for-1."

    Where's the Better Business Bureau when you need 'em?

  2. Clearly Fenway fans don't value pizza as much as a clean snag. Good think that dude wasn't in charge of safety when you dropped your kid, Jack.

  3. The YouTube thing is great! Does also sum up baseball, other then cricket, what game do you spend half of your time watching when you are playing? Very hard for a soccer player to understand?
    As for the pizza thing? I'll get pissed off when I only get one pizza delivered! Let's face it, lunch the next day is covered, breakfast too! Cheers, xelA.
