Cheeseburger Pizza

Thursday, April 21st, 2005 · 2 Comments

dominos_pizza.03.jpg I wanted to puke last night when I saw the commercial featuring Donald Trump advertising the new Domino’s cheeseburger pizza. Then I thought it had to be a joke. It seems that it’s real. And I’m so grossed out by it.

Not that I’ve eaten a Domino’s pizza in the past ten or so years anyway, but this new concoction just gives me one more reason not to do so. Don’t get me wrong, I love pizza and would it eat it every night if it weren’t so bad for me (I do eat it at least once a week), but come on, a cheeseburger on a pizza?! I’m mostly a vegetarian these days, so cheeseburgers don’t appeal to me to begin with, but there’s just something oh so wrong about taking two of the worst foods for you and smashing them together in one “only in America” pile of mush.

When the hell did everything in America get so big and over the top? It hasn’t always been this way, has it? From our SUVs to our sodas to our Super Size fries to our TGIF beer, everything comes in deluxe size. What ever happened to living in moderation? It’s no wonder our waist lines are expanding accordingly. I read recently that even parking spots are soon going to expand to account for the ever-increasing size of the average SUV on the road.

Junk Food News

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I walk right past someone, look right at him or her, make eye contact, say “hello” or “good morning” or “good afternoon,” and he or she stares blankly right back at me without saying a word. Either people are deaf, rude, or just plain assholes.

    Last week we had dinner at Fudrucker’s and some hulking athletic college boy won a $10 gift certificate for finishing off their 2lb burger. He headed straight for the ice cream station and ordered a banana split. Questions: WHY? and How can he fit that volume of food into his tummy?

    I see your point. I think that fast food is horrible for you. It is barely food. It is a big problem in this country, but honestly… I LOVE eating it every now and again. That Domino’s Cheese Burger Pizza is something I’ve been wanting to pick up for a while now.

    But think of it like this: I no longer drink. I used to, but I’m more religious now. Truth be told, though, many people don’t drink because of the social and health issues surrounding alcohol.

    I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs… I barely get to sleep in anymore, since I started having kids.

    I think that everyone needs a vice of some sort. Regardless of what that vice is, though, the key is moderation. That’s what seperates the occassional vice from an all out addiction.

    Just my two cents. Don’t offer a penny for my thoughs, as I can’t make change.
