Since when is pizza “American” cuisine, pray tell?

Since it became too mutated for the Italians to claim it. ?

About the time four ninja turtles made it a trademark of their diet if the timeline fits.

Just to clarify to anyone who is confused, Turtles and Ninjas are also both distinctly American. 🙂

My father always says the absolute worst pizza he ever had in his life was when he had it in Italy.

Although there was one joint in my hometown with a guy from… somewhere in the Balkans, I think, who, while friendly, made the absolute worst most impossibly awful pizza that **I** have ever had, and since my dad has sampled that pizza as well, I have to wonder: what in blazes did the Italians do to a pizza to make it WORSE than the literal worst pizza I have ever had?

Pizza as we know it today is an invention of Italian-Americans. It’s does not look like the original Italian creation.

“American pizza” when bought in Germany has nothing to do with what we call “pizza” and both have nothing to do with what you get when you order a pizza in Italy. It’s fair to call your local pizza a local meal, in your case “American”.

Same with Chinese food, Indian food, Mexican food, etc.

The world now has everyone wanting to try all the great foods around the world. Sometimes they spend some $ to get the authentic ingredients and sometimes they adjust them to local ingredients (as well as adopting particular expectations for locals – like less heat or less spicing or the like).

Just like when they made the movie U-571 and it was an American sub. In the acknowledgements at the end, ALL of the submarines involved in acquiring the Enigma units and the code disks stared not with USS but HMS. The logic, I’m sure, of making it an American sub was that the American audience doesn’t pay much attention to stories that don’t focus on America or Americans. (duly noted that not everyone thinks that, but enough do.) It’s a bit like that. There’s also the fact that for a lot of the time Pizza was popular in the US,… Read more »

Since the 1905. Italian immigrants decided to make it their own and it is “italian” but only inspired. Just like chicken parmesan and anyother dish that has a bunch of meat.

Alton Brown did a fantastic episode on it in good eats (twice)

I dunno… If that pizza’s currently inside a 500lb behemoth who belly flops onto your lap, one could make the argument the pizza did a hit and run on you.

Don’t worry Ethan, since even though you may have lost infinite lives, you still have plot armor, so you’re fine.

Indeed….
It is hard to think of better ways to die than Pizza. Maybe fried chicken? IDK.

But he does have a point about handing their address to an axe murderer though. Axe murder is definitely a worse way to go than Pizza!

You having a 3d model of their apartment and store, so that you don’t actually have to redraw brackgrounds, when the angle changes? I’ve got absolutely nothing against it, mind.

While I know it’s all in jest about block arteries/ high cholesterol that brings up a good question. If he has a heart attack or something like a blood clot that kills him, would he respawn at a fixed point where he’d have only a bit of time to try and stop/prevent jt? I’m going to assume old age is allowed, but would it be a short time loop or does him power not defend from self/internal attacks?

He respawns to his “last healthy state” so I presume the blockage would go away.

I remember my friend telling me he had lost a save in Half life to something like that – Basically the auto save got him stuck with an unavoidable headcrab or something (I don’t remember exactly what it was)

I once told a friend to not save under “a” because my enter key sometimes gives two keypresses (selecting “a”). One day the save was gone.

this situation is gonna be resolved by Ethan getting shanked, whether he comes back to life afterwards or not

I agree. Remember when he broke his neck just trying to get a box off a shelf in the store room? He’s likely to off himself accidentally eventually. Even when trying to be careful about it.

Pizza is good, but I think my final meal would have to be chicken tikka masala.

In my case it’s a toss up between real taco’s with a side of seasoned french fries, and a nice, slow-cooked roast with potato’s in a crock-pot over night. Just sayin’.

Could he just induce medical death for a brief moment in a controlled environment, and see if he respawns?

Ethan has always gone over the top with his thoughts, and I’m sure the troll had figured out as such, so a fake “cure” would mess him up and stop him from being a super. Which was the troll’s goal all along. I’d be more worried if it was a tracker or some slow-acting gunk that makes him sick in some way.

The Troll is winning beyond his expectations when Ethan bad mouths pizza and the process by which it comes to him. There’s wrong, and then there’s wrong (and paranoid), and then there’s this.

Oh yes. I’d like to go out while eating my favorite food, too.

I think I’d go with “dulce de leche.” You may know it as sweet caramel, but it’s SO much better.

Only a few countries eat it regularly. Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Mexico… Name and exact recipe vary. It may be called “manjar” (Chile) or “cajeta” (Mexico).

Goes great with anything you’d use Nutella or peanut butter for.

I’ve introduced people from several other countries, to its glory. They were all impressed.

Ethan is lucky that Lucas is so restrained because if I was in his place, we’d be finding out very quickly if the Troll actually removed Ethan’s powers for his sacrilege against pizza. lol

Lucas had a lot of opportunity to learn to not test Ethan’s ability every few minutes.

I just have to say, this was probably the exact right amount of comics to actually start resolving things. A couple comics of paranoid Ethan is fun, a dozen would have been annoying. And he doesn’t have to actually resolve things here.
In fact, returning to a state where he had a healthy fear of death (at the level of a normal person, not *this* current state) is probably for the best. That way fewer people experience his power, but he still has it for when he actually needs it.
