Isn't it weird how we make round pizzas, delivered in square boxes, just to cut them into little triangles before eating.

@fribbledom Now that you say it out loud... hahaha

@fribbledom Hitboxes are still called hitboxes even when they're round

@fribbledom haha normies I eat trapezoid pizzas

@fribbledom How are you meant to make a circle box?

@fribbledom Yes, that is weird. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

@fribbledom Don't forget the shapes that you process them out to.

@fribbledom Around here we have a pizza place that makes rectangular pizzas cut into rectangles or squares that fill the boxes and another place that cuts the round pizzas into little parallelograms.

@fribbledom @neal here most places have square as a size up from XL.

@disco @fribbledom Yes, I forgot about the rectangular party pizza size. I've only eaten them back when I was in grade school.

@fribbledom you can have square pizza, but...

@fribbledom a sector of a circle is not a triangle. cmon. :P

Those are all the same shape according to Topology, a branch of Mathematics.

@fribbledom at home we usually do make some kind of square pizza, and some local pizza places sell them like this.

@fribbledom this hurt my feelings

@fribbledom not as weird as it would be if we made triangular pizzas, put them in circular boxes, and cut them into squares.

@fribbledom Little Caesar's thought so.

@fribbledom Nah, easier to make a square box, easier to make a round pizza and easier to eat triangular slices.

@fribbledom I guess the gaps it leaves at the corners in the square box, makes it easier to take out the first slices.
As for pizza slicing technique; isn't square-cut a thing for Chicago style pizzas?
Personally I have to try this disc tiling technique next time: newscientist.com/article/dn287
Also, here in Norway sells a rectangular pizza: manneblogg.no/testgrandiosa-hj

@fribbledom YOU GOTTA TRY DETROIT STYLE 'ZA MY DUDE

@gamehawk I could only read the title, but it already made me laugh 😆

@fribbledom They're referring to a YouTube video which I haven't watched, but: youtube.com/watch?v=sNuKpwX6Tz

@fribbledom I think what it boils down to is: Chuck E. Cheese crust is the opposite of crispy and so when they cut it the excessive outer crust shifts around, then the cheese sets up a bit and the pizza looks like you've Frankensteined a bunch of random slices together.

@fribbledom you have a good point here lol 😂
