Pondering Pizza

I went out for pizza last week with a Korean friend.  We went to Mr Pizza.  The proprietor was extremely excited to have a foreigner in his restaurant, and proceeded to question me on all things pizza.

“You have pizza, you country?”


“But no Mr Pizza!  Mr Pizza Korean!” he exclaimed, waving his arms for emphasis.  “You have many kinds pizza, you country?”


“But no Mr Pizza!  Mr Pizza is Korean!!  You have…”

You get the idea.

My friend was highly amused.

Our pizza was delicious, and the salad bar fabulous.  (Korean pizza always comes topped with corn.  I’ve gotten used to it.  The big potato wedges however are still a bit odd…)

We couldn’t finish so we decided to take it home.  I was amazed to see that each piece of leftover pizza was wrapped in tinfoil…

…and then all the pieces were placed in a cute gift bag.

I pondered Mr Pizza’s slogan – Love for Women.  What did this mean?  Did women love Mr Pizza?  Women could always find love at Mr Pizza?  Or was it meant to imply that Mr Pizza was healthy for women in some way?  It was deliciously unclear. 😀
