Someone's gonna go swimming with concrete slippers.

I don't want any spunk on my pizza.

Posted by Darcy | August 22, 2008 9:25 AM

I laughed.

It's weird the writer knew to hyphenate "hand-tossed" but not "clean-up" (noun).

It was definitely a witty meta-prankster.

Pagliacci's pizza fucking sucks. I'd rather eat Pizza Hut than that shit.

@3, that was my thought when I read the postcard.

@7 you obviously have no taste.

Or are YOU the disgruntled prankster!?!?

Sounds like someone at Pagliacci figured out a way to get their ad in all the papers for free. Sweet.

Gentle surrealism. The very best type of prank.

The scan above is from where I work, All Purpose Pizza in Leschi (Hi Paul! Hope the onions on your pizza last night were "Fierce" enough for your friend).

When we got the postcard (thinking it was real), I thought it was totally hilarious/totally un-classy. I'm kind of disappointed it was a prank.

A couple of days ago I received a similar direct-mail card for some lumber supplier which described how they were "Inconveniently Located at" and then the addresses. I wondered if there's a prankster at the printing company that does these things.

@12: Hi, Asa. The pizza was great, thanks—you guys are my favorite. I'm sorry that Pagliacci thinks you're stupid.

Hey, just follow the money. Who paid for the bulk-mailing postage permit?

A prank is not the same thing as performance art. Please make a note of it.

And attributing a prank with a "light, performance-art scent" is not the same thing as calling it performance art. Please make a note of it.

Re: 15: A humorless performance artist? Who woulda thunk it?

not that hard to call up the USPS bulk mail unit and find out whose signature is on the most recent postage statement for permit 1932

We blame The Incredible Sulk.
