Altman: I'm from the NYC area, and of the three major chains (not familiar with Mario's), Pizza Hut tastes the most like "real" pizza.

So your taste buds don't work? Pizza Hut is grease. Nothing but grease piled on greasy bread covered in greasy cheese. The only time Pizza Hut pizza is acceptable is if you haven't shiat in five days and you need a food sled to expedite your anus product.

Arkanaut: And what's the deal with that garlic butter stuff? Does anyone use it?

About a dozen years ago, my then-roommate opened a package of it and set it aflame to see if it would make for an interesting garlic-butter-scented candle.

It damn near exploded. That shiat could be used as rocket fuel.

/He was always setting things on fire to see if they would make for interesting-scented candles.
//He always failed.
///Hamburger grease was his greatest failure.

If I were running Papa Johns I'd be more concerned about Payton Manning trying to give away millions of free pizzas.

I'll stick with my Little Caesars hot-n-ready for 5 bucks. It tastes as good as most other pizza's and at that price it cant be beat.

You're from New York and you eat at Pizza Hut? I'm going to hook you up with a gun and a suicide note

natazha: We tend to buy from chains (not Papa John's though). Why? Because the little shops in our area don't seem to be able to have a pizza ready when they say they will. We can order from Pizza Hut online, hop in the car, and the pizza will be ready when we get there.

What an ADD society might look like.

"I don't care if it is good, just that it is ready before I get distracted ... oh look, American Idol!"

A company that's giving away 2 million free pizzas is thinking they may have to downsize to remain competitive? Stop giving away free pizza.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Papa John could double their price and they'd still get my business.

that's because you have poor taste

Schnatter, a Romney supporter who held a fundraiser for the former Republican nominee, said in August that Obamacare would cost the company between 11 and 14 cents per pizza. Subsequent analysis by Caleb Melby of Forbes found that the price increase would actually be closer 3.4 to 3.6 cents per pie.

A quick googling shows that Papa John's profit margin is north of 40%, all on the back of minimum wage workers and less-than-minimum wage drivers. 40% profit and they are complaining of a 0.3% cost increase. This is nothing but John Schnatter crying over fractions of a percent instead of taking care of his employees.

This is a fundamental problem with capitalism, the short-sightedness of the Tragedy of the Commons. Society as a whole will be much better off with these people having preventative care than waiting until an emergency room crisis we all end up paying for. You'd think conservatives of all people would understand the classic maxim of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure but all this greedy little man can see is fractions of a percent he will never miss going to make the lives better of his working-poor employees and he *hates* it.

Arkanaut: There's that competition thing we've all been hearing about.

What are the odds that the pizza at Ian's tastes better too?

As someone who has had Ian's in Madison and Milwaukee, Ian's is far superior. It's not Casa Bianca's though...RIP Casa B's. Your meatball pizza was mana straight from heaven.

On topic, HAHA Papa. Cry MOAR.

Martin, a part owner of Ian's Pizza, a pizza shop with four locations in Wisconsin, said his business has offered full heath care coverage to its 50 full-time employees for years, making it all the more difficult to compete with national chains like Papa John's that pay workers low wages without health benefits.

Hey, buddy - if you support socialism you don't deserve to compete in this great capitalist system.
