For Friday Lite this week, I came across this funny site, called, "60 Ways to Order a Pizza" at "The Jokes Place". I love pizza, and I started laughing out loud as I read it. I have to share with you some of the funny ways to order pizza that made me laugh. I think I can relate to this for a few reasons. One of my first jobs was at a pizza restaurant, and I often took the calls for pick up and delivery orders. I could imagine myself, as a young teenager, receiving these calls. Secondly, I think we all have ordered pizza at one time or another, and as I read through the list I could just imagine certain people I know saying these things for a laugh or two. Hope you enjoy this list as much as I did.
- If using a touch-tone, press random numbers while ordering. Ask the person taking the order to stop doing that.
- Make up a charge-card name. Ask if they accept it.
- Terminate the call with, "Remember, we never had this conversation."
- Tell the order taker a rival pizza place is on the other line and you're going with the lowest bidder.
- Give them your address, exclaim, "Oh, just surprise me!" and hang up.
- In your breathiest voice, tell them to cut the crap about nutrition and ask if they have something outlandishly sinful.
- Tell them to put the crust on top this time.
- Ask what the order taker is wearing.
- Tell the order taker you're depressed. Get him/her to cheer you up.
- Change your accent every three seconds.
- If they repeat the order to make sure they have it right, say, "Okay, that'll be $10.99; please pull up to the first window."
- Ask if you get to keep the pizza box. When they say yes, heave a sigh of relief.
- Put the accent on the last syllable of "pepperoni." Use the long "i" sound.
- Imitate the order taker's voice.
- Ask what topping goes best with well-aged Chardonnay.
- Start the conversation with "My Call to Pizza Place, Take 1, and. . . action!"
- Ask if the pizza is organically grown.
- Be vague in your order.
- Order a steamed pizza.
- If any of the above practices are rejected by the order taker, say, in your best pouty voice, "Last guy let me do it."

Hope you have a laughter-filled day!
