As a lover of all things pizza this story makes me so proud of our beloved food.
Last week a pizza shop owner in Delaware was getting ready to close the restaurant for the night when a guy showed up demanding cash holding a MACHETE! Who robs a place with a machete nowadays? Apparently this heathen.
Naturally, the owner defended his pizza place with the only thing he had readily available to him… pizza. He actually threw a pizza at the robber. Which on its own is a crazy move. But even more crazy? It WORKED! The machete wielding pizza thief ran off once the pie was tossed at him. Now the police in Delaware are searching for this coward. Hopefully they find him. What a waste of a pizza by the way, hopefully it was a pineapple pie. Only pizza worth wasting.
Big win for pizza though. Stopping robberies left and right. See! I always say it. The perfect food. Simple, delicious, crime stopping.
