    Texas BBQ (no onions)

    I just got my Pizza free after they managed to make it wrong twice. I despise onions but the lovely staff at Dominos seem to want to force them upon me.

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    I'm not quite sure which is worse: Getting onions on your pizza when you despise them, or eating Dominos pizza (once you are out of college).

    Quite likely, there were no onions on the box, so you should have eaten that. It has several advantages:

    1) Low calorie.
    2) High fiber.
    3) Tastes the same as the pizza.
    4) More colorful than the pizza.
    5) No onions.

    I do, eating Dominos pizza is far worse!!!

    One of the few and The last Pizza i got from Domino's (must have been 5-6 years ago) was so bad i sent it back twice.

    They then sent me a free Pizza which was cold as well as bad so that went straight in the bin too.

    Never been back!

    I think Little Caesar's pizza is worse than Dominos... Domino's has gotten better in the last couple of years... but except for a couple of exceptions I'm not a fan of food chain pizzas. I prefer to make it myself, or go with a local mom-and-pop establishment that knows how to do it right.

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    I just wanna find somewhere that'll do me a bolognaise pizza. I swear it's like sex for your mouth, only less sweaty and not as dissapointing. Unfortunately none of the big chains do them but, from time to time, a small local business will pimp me one.

    Have you ever considered to make your own pizza? You should try it! It won't taste like the box!

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    I have never actually tried actually. Are you mocking my consumption of pizza from dominos? I'll have you know that it was mendhak himself who told me programmers should it pizza and drink mountain dew, often. I am only following the preachings of a god.

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    HUH!!!! Years ago my co-worker and I would order pizza every day for lunch. When we call the pizza place, before we get to speak, they know who we are and what we want. So, they will say the pizza is on the way. I literally gain 50 pounds that year. Sad to say that I had to stop eating pizza and go to the gym. I guess I should have eaten the box instead. It was so nice to be young. Today, I have to be carefull.

    Amen, I say, as I walk on a treadmill with the computer monitor strapped onto a ledge that also holds the keyboard (mouse is on a pivoting tray to the right).

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    I'll have to get one. I actually don't have a picture of the setup, and it's pretty nice, though I had a fun time buying the monitor.

    Every monitor in existence seems to come on a pedestal stand. I saw one that had a three-point stance, but it was something like a 16" monitor (I didn't know anybody even made those). So I went to every computer store in the area and wiggled their monitors. The clerks would come over and ask me what in the world I was doing. They could tell me just about anything about any of the monitors, except for the one bit of information I really wanted to know: Which monitor had the least wobble to it.

    In the end, I had to put together some steel straps to hold the monitor base to the platform.

    Oh, it's all about the mess, baby! The sauce ends up so think and slippery that just picking up a slice can be a daredevil adventure into a world of third degree cheese-burns and garliccy tomato napalm. I like my pizza to consitute a danger sport. It's a great combinatiopn of tastes though and I do recommend anyone try it, though the faint of heart may wish to blow on it first.

    And having written that paragraph I now feel a strong urge to start a band, just so I can call it "Third Degree Cheese Burns"

    This statement is worth nothing without pictures!
    Just imagine a yeti on a treadmill, grunting pun after pun as it mashes it's hairy fore-paws against a computer key-board. That should be pretty close.

    Closer than you might think. Lots of people call me Sasquatch at work, but my fore-paws really aren't all that hairy.

    You can fix that with frequent masturbation. Just saying.

    Re: Texas BBQ (no onions)

    The last time I tried one from Dominos (two years ago?) they had changed their crust recipe.

    The new formulation was bizarre, with an odd crumbly texture as if made from cake flour and breadcrumbs shaken out of an old toaster. It had some terrible aftertaste I am still trying to get out of my mind, probably from some sort of grease they were using.

    One good thing about it: you sure didn't want to eat more!
