Flavor Savoring in the Boom Boom Room: Pizza Hut Daps My Mouth-Hand

Not until Monday night did it occur to me how badly I wanted to own a shirt that said SAVOR THE FLAVOR. On a free-standing garment rack, wedged between an apron, a black vinyl puffer vest, and several other shirts of sartorial insignificance, there was a bright-red women's v-neck t-shirt demanding that I put a… » 11/14/14 12:27pm 11/14/14 12:27pm

The Hero We Need: Woman Risks Life and Limb to Save Pizza

What do you do when your pizza is assaulted in a freak food fight that erupts out of nowhere?

Pizza Wars: Will No One Defend the Deep Dish?

This topic is not for the faint of heart. The debate to come will tear apart families and turn friends into enemies. Rivers will run red with the blood of 1,000 tomatoes. Cheese will be everywhere and dough — oh, God, so much dough. We are about to talk about pizza. Specifically (and dangerously), we are talking about » 11/14/13 3:30pm 11/14/13 3:30pm

Testicles Have Taste Receptors. Do With That What You Will.

I don't know how to break this to you gently, so I'm just going to come out and say it: there are taste receptors on every pair of testicles. To be more specific, there are taste receptors for the flavors of sweet and umami ("pleasant savory taste") sitting atop the undercarriage of the male anatomy. So don't even… » 7/02/13 10:40am 7/02/13 10:40am

Adorable Daughter Bills Dad for Home Tech Support

Oh, your parents: Teh Olds. They're always needing technical assistance with the most rudimentary computer tasks. Worse, you can't begrudge them the tech support since they're always helping you out with rides to the movie theater and money for ice cream. You can't deny them service, but goshdarnit, you should demand… » 6/25/13 5:53pm 6/25/13 5:53pm

George Clooney Moonlighting as a Pizza Chef in Germany, Apparently

I can't explain exactly why George Clooney's face on the body of a pizza chef fills me with so much joy, but it does. This pizza box is from Haslach, Germany, and so either Clooney has a pizza flipping twin in Haslach, or this is just another thing the man excels at. When he's not pulling pranks, he's pulling dough! » 2/18/13 11:15pm 2/18/13 11:15pm

Pizza Company Tries to Make Everyone Forget it Promoted Sexual Assault…

New Zealand's Hell Pizza offers a regular "confessional" competition in which customers try and best each other with their most scandalous stories.

Mean Congressman Tries to Take Away the One Vegetable We All Love: Pizza

Last fall, our trusty Congress officially declared that pizza was a vegetable because it has tomato sauce on it. Yeah, that was definitely a high point for democracy. Anyway, that led to us all making tired cracks about how we were at least getting our vegetable when we ate pizza, but in some small way, it did make it… » 5/23/12 10:00pm 5/23/12 10:00pm

Real-Life Mystic Pizza May Soon Serve Its Last Slice

Mystic Pizza, the movie that introduced America to Julia Roberts's cackle, was in fact based on a real place of the same name, a place in Connecticut where mystical pizzas were made in roaring ovens throughout the bountiful 90s, but that has now become a poster child for the economic recession.
