Rocco's Pizza Joint: "Nostalgia for an age that never existed."
I hate Rocco's Pizza Joint. I hate everything about it. I hate that it's called a "pizza joint." I hate the stupid 1950s exterior. I hate the stupid 1950s interior. I hate stupid 1950s nostalgia. "Oh, hey! Cool! Even worse misogyny than there is now! Segregation! Sign me up!" Fuck that. Aron didn't care at all because he doesn't care about how restaurants look or feel, he only cares about the food. I think Ryan liked it because he has a pompadour and was wearing a Chris Isaak t-shirt, so he's probably into fake 50s decor. But me, I can suck the fun out of anything, so I totally hated it.
And the pizza wasn't very good either. The cheese TOTALLY sucked. It was a horrible texture, it tasted awful, it was fucking the worst. The sauce was like, the bare minimum definition of 'okay.' The crust was cooked alright, though. But the cheese sucked so fucking much it was like, impossible to taste anything else.
