and while we’re on the subject of take-out…

A local pizza place radio ad is pimping their new “pizza by the slice” option.  It begins thus:

“Does ordering a pizza confuse you?”

<blink>

They do pretty much everything for you.  All you have to do is to specify the toppings, and maybe pick from one of three styles of crust, tops.  If you can’t make up your mind, they’ll just make you a cheese pie by default.  It’s not a terribly complex or mentally straining process to grunt the words “large cheese” into the phone, followed by your address.  If you can’t manage that, it’s probably time for you to report to the nearest nuclear power plant, for a new and exciting career in the field of biodegradable reactor shielding.

    Our favorite local pizza joint has 17 “traditional” toppings (including carrots and jalapenos) and 37 “exotic toppings” (from andouille sausage to crab meat to pine nuts) on your choice of crust: wheat or white, thick or thin.

    I don’t recall ever having been confused making an order.

    I thought that specifying the toppings and picking the style of crust (and size) was what you did when ordering a pizza anywhere else? How is that making ordering “simpler” for the “special” people among us?
