This is actually an idea I had years ago but just remembered when I was thinking about pizza.

Trying to reach a friend who didn't have a phone, I stopped at a Western Union office and priced sending a message ($10.00). Too pricy, I declined and hit upon this idea.

I called the local Pizza Parlor in my friend's town and ordered a hot cheese pizza to be delivered. "By the way," I asked, "Could you write on the box 'will not arrive until 10 pm. [name]"? Voila! Message sent in fifteen minutes with a hot cheese pizza thrown in extra.

I never did reimburse Richie for the pizza come to think of it.

(I want to change the name from 'Western Union Pizza'.)

       The pizza trick jutta mentions is on page 165 of "How to Play with your Food" at least in the first edition. The book appears to be out of print.

       What better way to say 'I love you' than with piping hot pizza? :) Croissant!

       At that time a whole pie, delivered, was $7.00.

       [krelnik]: All their stuff? How about "Penn and Teller Get Killed" on laserdisc? No? You want it? Maybe we can deal before I put it up for auction.

       This wouldn't work if the doughnut-shaped pizza were widely adopted. There'd be no point to the message.

       Hmmmm, since I don't have the appropriate equipment to play it on, I think I'll pass, Gun.
