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
a Western Union office and priced sending a message
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
(I want to change the name from 'Western Union Pizza'.)

||so your friend pays for pizza and message on delivery? what if he is out? this makes a lot of sense at the end of a long day when I am coming down with the flu. actch chooo.
||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.
||I'm a huge Penn & Teller fan, have all their stuff. (WTAGIPBAN)
||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.
