5. Average chain pizza

I don't know how Papa Johns, Dominoes, Pizza Hut, etc stay in business. There are so many local pizza places that serve much better pizza.

There are several local pizzerias within a 10 minute drive that I would go to before Pizza Hut.

I always look for local joints if they exist. For chain pizza I'd rather go to Mellow Mushroom or Hungry Howies. PJ started out better than it's ended up.

Why should it be so offensive to you?

Are you a person who is so weak that you very easily become upset by a spoken word that could never bring you any physical harm?

I love NY pizza but I only indulge in it about 4 times a year. It's too unhealthy to eat pizza more often than that.

48. First things first

I don't like their pizza. It a popular choice for office gatherings but I have yet to find any redeeming quality in the pizza. So no I won't be ordering it.

As to his statement, this is a good example of PC culture going out of control. As I understand it he is an ass and maybe even a racist ass, but his statement on the conference call did not illustrate that. What he said was that someone else had used the word in the past but didn't have a problem because of a lack of publicity. He was calling out what he viewed as hypocrisy. Referring to someone else's use of the word which is hardly an offense on its own as we have seen a number of times even President Obama made reference to the word used it in the process but did not target anyone with it. Now had he actually referred to someone with the term in a derogatory manor that would likely be a very different situation. But that is not what they reported he did.

context matters, or at least it should

50. I don't disagree with that

it likely was best but it was best for a bad reason that was beyond his control. I was calling out that bad reason within our society. None of this means he isn't a piece of garbage, he may very well be. But the specific details of the situation are being completely misrepresented and that's a problem for all of us as a people.
