If it's good enough for the King of Spain, it should be good enough for Italian peasants.

/never rushes

If you can cook, you can cook.  In NYC, I'm used to Latinos making pizza and Chinese and Koreans making bagels.

What about the halal issue?

Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
Oh... my unspeakable wife, Queen Lisa, now I eat humble pie
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
And now I work at the Pizza Pizza
1 2 3 4!
Royalty, lord it looked good on me
Buried in silk in the royal boudoir or going nuclear free
Or playing Crokinole with the Princess of Monaco
Telling my jokes to the OPEC leaders, getting it all on video
Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
A palatial palace, that was my home, now I eat humble pie
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
And now I vacuum the turf at SkyDome
Once he was the King of Spain
I can't wait, I'm lowering interest rates, my people say:
"King, how are you such a genius?
There's a roof overhead
and food on our plates!"
It's laissez-faire, I don't even give a care
Let's make Friday part of the weekend
And give every new baby a chocolate eclair
Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
Hey Clinton! Hey Yeltsin! Got problems?
You phone me, now I eat humble pie
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
Now the Leafs call me up to drive the Zamboni
Once he was the King of Spain
Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you the international orchestra!
Now some of you might be wondering how I came to be living in Canada
after being royalty in Spain. Should I tell them, guys?
Tell us, King!
You see late one night when the palace was asleep
Out of my royal chambers and into the garden I creep
And I wait till the appointed time, when the moon is lighting the pitch
At which point my peasant friend, who looks just like me
Arrives and we make switch!
(gasp)
Prince and pauper, junior and whopper
World made up of silver and copper
Under my own volition, I took a change of position
So next time you drool in the pizza line
Remember, slower pizza's more luscious
The King of Spain never rushes!!!
Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
I was lookin' for off-handed ways to improve us, now I eat humble pie
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie
And now I'm jamming with Moxy Fruvous!
Once he was the King of Spain

I'd try a pyramid pizza.

sounds like a scam

Pyramid Pizza is the name of a popular pizza place where I live (Lawrence) and it has other locations in the state of Kansas.

That's one of the lamest throw-away jokes I think I've ever seen in a greened headline.

Jesus.

Please, tell me, is there a reference I'm not getting, or is it just that bad?

unemployment among young people has reached 35 per cent.

"The Italian mindset is that being a pizza-maker is humiliating, it is a manual labour job," he said. "Young Italians want to own 40,000 euro cars and wear nice clothes but they are not prepared to work for it.



Wow.  I wonder if this may be a contributing cause to the catastrophic economic situation Italy is in.

GilRuiz1: Wow. I wonder if this may be a contributing cause to the catastrophic economic situation Italy is in.


Wouldn't think so. The same crap gets said about American youth, right down to the "They are not prepared to work for it." I have to wonder if the youth has been sold a false bill of goods by the previous generation who enjoyed (and then pissed away) greater prosperity

And just like in America, the hard, thankless jobs in food service, like pizza making and burger flipping, go to immigrants to keep the wages down. I hope Italy's are at least legal.

Um, not all in Egypt are Muslims . Or even hard core orthodox . Kinda like some Jews eat bacon .....

The Egyptians are going to be bringing their A-game and design a pizza sphinx.  It will ask diners riddles and if they answer incorrectly the sphinx will strangle with a string of garlic cloves.

The best pizza makers within a reasonable distance of my office are all Iraqi ex-pats.  Which is hilarious, because they make a better, more authentic slice than the pretentious pricks in my town's Little Italy.

So what?  In California, Mexicans make everything.

This might sound bad, but it's even worse if you're a vampire.

So there is no pyramid pizza is what you're telling me....?

Pyramid pizza? It's already been done. By Canadians, no less:

But they worked hard for it. Not like kids these dyas.  Have you ever met a lazy boomer?  I never have.
