Skinny Pizza
« on: February 19, 2013, 07:29:49 PM »
I think this guy has a brilliant idea.
Half the calories and half the carbs has a very nice ring to it.

Problem is that it's half compared to a slice that weighs twice as much. Compared to other slices that still probably weigh more, there is no difference in carbs and only 20% less calories - and that's comparing a "margherita" to a cheese pie which is likely their biggest differential.

Seems to be more marketing that actual benefit. It's pretty telling that they use "slice" and not grams for the serving size...

You are thinking like a man.
Think like a diet conscious woman or girl...which is darn near all of them.
Guilt free pizza...

I'll be buying the stock of the first chain that copies this idea.

There is actually a drink called the skinny bitch...at least that's what we call it.
Diet coke and vodka

I watch some of these women trying to order, and they read a menu trying to order the closest thing to air.

dressing  on the side....always on the side.


I like to screw with my wife, and tell the waiter to make sure it's on the _left_ side.
