After someone used a pizza delivery to make a political phase lately, a little pizza shop in Dunedin, New Zealand, has added a new menu item to protest Donald Trump’s proposed perimeter wall. Not that Logan Beck, the owner of Filadelfio’sGardens and the pizza shop, had particularly lofty aims in mind for his Trump pizza. It was mostly just made out of boredom.
Essentially, the pizza merges two pre-existing pizzas( the Mexican and the American ), into one delicious, satirical mess of cheese and political consciousness that he’s called simply enough, “The Trump.”
“I thought, ‘Let’s make something and see if we can boost the night along’, ” he told the New Zealand publication Stuff . And boost the night along it did, with the pizza attracting a whole heap of online attention to the store. After all, flavours may be acceptably divided, but people? Nah, we’re good as we are thanks. Looks like Stewart Lee was wrong: Satire isn’t merely “something when there’s animals in it.” It can be something with cheese in it too. Filadelfio’s Gardens have been contacted for commentary.
