In the Future Everything About Your Life Will Be Cheaper and Crumbier. Dumb Too.

Yet another crapulous contraption made by eunuchs. I for one decline to live the recycled life of these pious pecksniffs who infect the biosphere.

What a nifty hack with a cardboard box. What a farookin' sad thing to actually use.

I can actually see the usefulness of the half-pizza storage box idea.

As for the built in "serving plates"...Big Daddy says no.

Huh...there are people who use plates for pizza. Who knew? I'm greener than they are, and I'm a bachelor who doesn't even try. I just don't like washing dishes.

I am going to state the not so obvious. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metro area does not accept pizza boxes (or any other greasy cardboard for that matter) as recycling. This product is useless here.

I say this is a great day for Gaia. Hooray for less waste recyclable use it again earth friendly pizza box! Next will be beer in paper cartons! Trees are singing, and birds are swaying in the breeze. I, for one, am very happy.

On top of all that, it sure looks like they eat shitty pizza...

You can bet it's vegan.

"Saving the environment one pizza box at a time..."

Well, after 30 years of "Rocknroll To Save The Planet" has gone unremarked, how could anybody be surprised? (And of course, as Uncle Jefe has noted, the terminally self-righteous apparently assume that cardboard "food" is great as long as it's in a properly anal-retentive package.)

Welcome to the world of His Majesty the Baby, unrestrained. Happy, Boomers?

Recyclable pizza box: 35 cents.

Pious Pecksniffs: priceless!

I make my own pizza. I don't order it out. Does that make me a bad person? Because I'll never use a green box?

I don't particularly have a problem with this type of environmentalism, because it's actually part of the reduce, re-use mentality and has a "put your money where your mouth is" level of participation.

You're still free to use it or pass it up, as opposed to nebulous carbon credits and other forms of Gaia-worship that we're being subjected to on a daily basis.

Posted by: Stephen B at April 30, 2009 11:24 AM

That type of environmentalism, yes, that's as a concept okay. But the style and the smug and the smarm is over the top.

Tell us how you really feel, Gerard.

Leftover pizza? Not in this house!

Posted by: Fausta at April 30, 2009 12:09 PM

Ya know, if they hadn't put their greasy pizza on it, the top half of the box would've been recyclable.

Posted by: Harvey at April 30, 2009 4:10 PM

Did I actually see three people share half a medium pizza? Sick, my friends, sick.

I shall make every endeavour to use pecksniff in casual conversation with my child's teacher who canceled the field trip to NYC in May, and have opted, instead, to have a field trip to Hero Township, East Petersburg: Sites will include Gargano's Pizzeria, Wawa Gas Station, Turkey Hill, and the New Giant Mini Store. Yes, that's right...a Giant Mini Store.

Posted by: Jewel at April 30, 2009 8:30 PM

"A giant mini store...." Pretty much sums up the whole pop culture.

Posted by: vanderleun at May 1, 2009 9:41 AM

I see that being used (if it hasn't been already) by the lazy undergraduate who lives on a diet of cheap beer and pizza.

Giant Mini Store - that's a good one.
Do you think they got the inspiration from 'King of the Hill's' Mega-Lo Mart?

Posted by: Mikey NTH at May 1, 2009 11:27 AM

I used to do something like that when my old roommate and I would order pizza's. we would rip the box apart, and seperate the pizza and use the box as a plate.

We didn't do it to care for mother gaia, but cuz we were guys and didn't want to do any dishes.

Posted by: Douglas at May 1, 2009 5:04 PM

I can see how that would be handy in a situation where, say, you didn't have any plates (such as at a picnic or something) or else like Douglas you didn't want to do any plates, and if a pizza company had simply come up with it on its own without the "green" hoopla I would probably praise it. But since they did decide to make a big deal about this being yet another piece of the hairshirt we're all supposed to wear as we flagellate ourselves for Mother Gaia, I'm not only against it, I will take great pleasure in eating my next pizza off of regular plates (which I will wash in my sink with a lot of hot water -- which I will keep running -- and soap that is *not* that crappy eco-friendly stuff that doesn't get anything clean), and then throwing the entire box in the trash. We don't recycle here at my apartment complex.

Did that idiot just recite his patent #? Am I supposed to be impressed?
