At some point, a genius working at Pizza Hut Corporation was fretting over sagging sales numbers and went to drown their sorrows at the local Steak n' Shake. While eating a delicious burger, there came the epiphany--why not combine one thing that's delicious (pizza) with another (cheeseburgers)?
And so we have this.
Future historians will try and determine exactly when the United States went from being an all-powerful empire that could defeat the forces of Fascism, outlast Colonialism and Communism, land on the first celestial body, and create great TV shows like Mannix, to descend into sad decadent filth. We now need to make airplane seats bigger, larger cupholders for our cars, and motorized chairs that are not solely used by the injured or crippled. There will be some choices as to where the turning point was:
1) The nomination of Sarah Palin for the Vice Presidency by a major poltiical party.
2) The launching of a television drama called "Supertrain" that is actually about a super train.
3) The invention of a pizza that is made of cheeseburgers.
Of course, this is just the latest revolution in fusion cuisine--the mix of "Italian" and "German" foods is not really weirder than going to a restaurant that combines Thai and Chinese. However, if Pizza Hut makes cheeseburgers as well as they make pizza, I'll have to pass on this one.
