Some other bloke defiling the cultural heritage of Italy.


The French have their pizza baguette

Funny thing is, the angriest people I’ve ever seen about pineapple on pizza are non-Italians. It’s like watching a Social Justice Warrior.


This man could become the most notorious Canadian in history—after Celine Dion. :rofl:

often named Croque baguette (or Croq’ baguette)

This über yummy-yummy thing is from Alsace. The orignal name of this de-li-cious calorie bomb is Flammekueche in alsatian dialect, (Standard German “Flammkuchen”), litteraly meaning “flame Cake”. The french term for this motherf…g good stuff is “Tarte flambée” but is less and less used since the translation is not only improper but also sounds less apealing to the french ears.

Ah, yes… almost forget to mention. It is yuuuuuuuuuuuuuummyyyyyyy !!!

Italian guy living in Taipei says it’s pretty good. If many of us don’t care, why are the other nationalities caring so much? Opposition to pineapple pizza is actually a rather frequent sight on Tinder too. Nobody is caring about its existence. Just don’t call it Italian.

I am bothered when Starbucks calls their swill Italian. I am not bothered by their coffee…even though I don’t like it. Superb hot chocolate though.

Actually, that sounds pretty good to me.

I like chotofu. I like duck blood. Not on pizza.

It’s not a Belgian thing.

Just don’t call it pizza!

Can’t keep makin up new words.

I call it American Pizza.

But it’s Canadian! :scream:

It’s a good thing, then I know who to avoid. All of them that is, no matter where they stand. As long as this is something they feel passionate about, then I don’t want to date them. :laughing:


Last week I saw a kid with his feet on the seat in front of his mother…and the rest of his body slumped over the front of the scooter…sort of like a dead dear carcass slung over the front.
I do wonder how she made right and left turns.

A 24-hour store that’s open from 11:00AM to 10:00PM. Do they mean open 24 hours per week? :woozy_face:
