As you are likely already aware, Spaghetti Pizza Hot Dish is quickly taking over the world. It started in one kitchen in Minnesota some years ago. A family of Polish, German, and Irish ancestry did what they thought was right by combining the fine tastes of both spaghetti and pizza into one delicious meal. Little did they know that they had unleashed a monster. Please, though...don't blame those poor Polacks. Isn't it enough they already have to sit through all those stupid jokes? Besides, there was NO WAY they could have understood the magnitude of their actions.
For decades, the spaghetti and the pizza festered, neither wanting to share the mealtime glory with the other. At some point in the past, however (and after triangulating the position of the spaghetti, the pizza, and the Harry Potter exhibit in Orlando, I have come to the conclusion that that point was likely August 12, 1992. There is, as always, a margin of error of +/- four (4) years), the two came to the realization that individually they were 'just another meal'. But together, they were cause for celebration. Birthdays, anniversaries, any big life moment seemed to beckon for their pairing. It didn't take long before the spaghetti and the pizza began to fully understand just how important they were...together.
From there, the whole thing spread like wildfire. The Spaghetti Pizza (or Pizza Spaghetti, depending on which of them you're talking to) put together a large group of venture capitalists with the intention of constructing a massive factory. What the VCs didn't know, unfortunately, was that the factory was going to be used to clone Spaghetti Pizza many, many times over. At last count, Spaghetti Pizza is the president of at least 12 nations, prime minister of three others, and is also making its way into Hollywood as a character actor. Additionally, Spaghetti Pizza has forced many common words to be renamed Spaghetti Pizza. An example: My spaghetti pizza is going spaghetti pizza but those spaghetti pizza can't spaghetti pizza for spaghetti pizza or even spaghetti pizza because spaghetti pizza will be spaghetti pizza. Don't worry: I don't know what it means, either. What the world domination of spaghetti pizza means to all of us, though, is that we must find a way to destroy it! To that end, I have come up with a plan that just might work.
The plan is simple, and the execution is delicious. Use the spaghetti pizza (I'm sorry...the 'internet') and log on to www.ericthehungrycowboy.com There you will find instructions regarding how to make a new version of Spaghetti Pizza. As soon as it comes out of your oven (and this is the most important part)...eat it. Eat it all! Well, maybe give it five minutes to cool off first. But then eat it all! We'll get through this, one forkful at a time!
