The My Little Pony Killer: Only open two nights a week? What a waste.

/I wouldn't trust the "freshness" of their ingredients

They need the other 5 nights to wash off the smug.

I thought everyone knew about Pizza Delicious?

/never actually heard of Pizza Delicious, but wanted to fit in.
//technically, their Facebook ad worked: it got them noticed and reported on by NPR (we in the journalism business call that "re-tweeting"), and now people nationwide know about them. Also, they're now on Fark, which I understand is read by a lot of fatties.

downstairs: Cool. And they serve negronis!

That's right, and you have Dr. Martin Luther King Jr to thank for it!

downstairs: atomic-age: "Pizza Delicious" is a really stupid name for a restaurant.

Maybe, but at least its not a pretentious one-word name.

You're right. Hipster food bugs the hell out of me.

I mean, they could've just gone with "

," and had the whole menu be stuffed with crap like, "This artisanal margherita creation is crafted from a hand-tossed, cracker-thin, cornmeal-dusted crust, which is then lightly-kissed with extra-extra virgin olive oil before being dressed with fresh roma-tomatillo puttanesca and a blend of asiago, romano, parmesan and our house-made mozzarella/buffalo, then fired in an imported, wood-fired stone oven first built by old-world Sicilian craftsmen, then carefully disassembled, packed, shipped, and lovingly-recreated right here in our kitchen."

Screw you. Little Caesar's sucks, but at least they're only selling me pizza. Not pizza and a goddamned pretentious kennel pedigree.

Sounds like their business model would be better served by sending reminder emails and posting on facebook every Thursday and Sunday morning and throughout the day to remind people they're open that day. Mayhap with pics of the delicious speciality pizzas of the day.

/meh, they're probably doing this already
//I just like like saying 'mayhap'

Oh, absolutely. Everybody knows that things like pepperoni and cheese need to be just-made for them to be any good. No self-respecting Italian chef would just let that crap hang around for weeks on end.

serpent_sky: I thought Facebook ads were there only to be screengrabbed and posted only when something extremely weird popped up on the side of your page. Like how it is always asking me to help cure addicts or something. I didn't know anyone ever clicked on them, unless the mouse hit one by accident.

Here's one I keep getting:

They didn't say what two nights. It could be Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday if it is the owner's side business and they work other jobs during the week.

And it doesn't really matter which two nights those are if they're still using ingredients from three weeks ago.

Hey, someone just mentioned this on Slashdot and I made a snarky remark about it.

Maybe we are connected cosmically.
