Serious About Pizza – Adam Hills

My family are serious about pizza.
I could happily eat pizza every day of my life.
This story by Adam Hills was featured on our local ABC radio station a couple of Saturday mornings ago.
The clip features on the website of the pizza store in question, so I think its legit.

’Straya In A Snack Biscuit

It’s hard to think of anything more idiosyncratic that cheese and Vegemite flavored Shape biscuits (made in the classic style with the flavor that comes off on your fingers, none of this baked inside nonsense).

They’re even shaped like little Australian map outlines. I assume Tasmania is meant to be included on the bottom right of the Shape.

Taste is vaguely cheese with yeasty overtones.

Australia, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind. Australia! Australia!

Maths And Pizza

I swiped borrowed these images from twitter which demonstrate that if you like the topped portion of pizza, one eighteen inch pie provides more edible area than two twelve inch pies; however, if you like crust, then the two pie order should be your go to option.

What a dilemma.

Also, who had any idea that maths has practical applications in real life?

Tacosaurus Rex

I’m not sure if national taco day is a local observance, or one that is conducted in different nations.

Anyway, in honour, here is Tacosaurus Rex.

Probably Not If You Paid Me $6.99 To Take Them

Saw these chokoes in a fruit and vege shop while I was away. Not tempted. At all.

When I was a kid they grew on backyard vines, were pealed, seeded, steamed/boiled and best eaten smothered with melted butter and pepper.

There was a time overseas when I had them shredded and stir fried in a garlic oil type dish. That was okay. But generally they are a very ordinary vegetable.

Better for backyard games of cricket.

The Art Of Nut Milking (via Know Ideas Media)

This short mockumentary seeks to promote discussion about the proper nomenclature for non-dairy products.
They ask people to contribute their opinions about the matter in the comments on youtube, but nothing could make read them.
I found the video itself very amusing.
