It's 2-4-1, isn't it?

Every description –– the prices, the hours, the fact that people wouldn't think twice about someone looking through the trash –– sounds like 2-4-1.

I just started so I don't know how it's going to turn out, but... As I listen to this, one part of my brain is inclined to think, "Hey, nothing wrong with trying to get free food." The other part thinks, "Uh, well, if I discourage my cat from rifling through the garbage for food, shouldn't I hold fellow members of my species to that same standard?" And even though he's not actually eating pizza that has been thrown out, he's still rifling through the garbage to get pizza.. This is a tough one already.

Should not have listened to this episode just before lunch. Now I gotta go get me a slice (and maybe do some dumpster diving).

Oswalt-precedent be damned, Judge Hodgman's views on mixing food and liquids are very old-fashioned. He really should take a look at Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh's pioneering "Janelli" work over at MATES. Another example of the pseudo-judiciary being hopelessly out of touch with the general public.

Agreed.

That's the way i eat cereal. You get the initial flavor without milk. Then you get a different flavor upon milk application. The texture is perfect with no fear of the cereal getting soggy. However, i barely chew, if at all, before adding the milk. This also means that i can use a mug for cereal, which can then be readily eaten without a spoon. Basically, i'm two fisting cereal and milk.

This is a much better method than the Cap'n Crunch eating contraption employed by Randy Waterhouse starting on page 588 in Cryptonomicon, possibly the greatest novel ever.

Janelling also works nicely with Doritos, cookies, and various breads, including pizza crust.

Why, yes i'm single without a girlfriend. What made you ask that?

I have Canadian House of Pizza and Garbage stuck in my head and I can't stop smiling.

"Although this case involves garbage, I do not consider either of you human garbage, even though one of you eats from the garbage."

Saw the Judge in Portland this past weekend and he was really great, just really awesome and funny. John Roderick played Not Moving to Portland and because I am a Maxfunster I was able to air-sing-along, like a big nerd, because I had heard it here first. Thanks MaxFun!
