Skinny Pizza

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...
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

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.
