Mike's Pizza: "A firm and resounding 'Whatever.'"
The slice at Mike's Pizza is as inoffensive and unexciting as the name. Totally unexceptional and average. The ratios are not great, but they're fine. The ingredients are okay, not bad, but it doesn't taste stellar. If I were hungry and walking down the street and stopped in here for a slice, I would be satiated, not at all disappointed, but totally unimpressed. Compared to the Kosher slice at Hana this pizza was like getting a blowjob from an angel, but in the full pizza spectrum, it is like, the exact middle.

I got this email a while ago from my sister and kept forgetting to publish it:
I don't know what sparked it, but I just remembered that in 5th grade, with Mr. James, we sang a song called "Pizza Love" with the elementary school chorus. I can't remember any of the lyrics except a spoken section in the middle performed by the only baritone that existed in elementary school:
"Oh my pizza, I love you so/your tangy sauce, your crusty dough/you must have been sent from up above/to fill my heart with pizza love"
And then the whole chorus echoed with "pizza lovvvvvve"
