They Go Together Like Jesus H. Christ on a Toasted Bagel

Is there anything more annoying than someone who leaves the country for a few months and then professes to be baffled and unfamiliar with the America he left behind? I used to think so, too, but that was before I turned on the TV today and saw an ad for the Domino's Oreo Dessert Pizza:

The first nationally available dessert pizza in Domino's nearly 47- year history, OREO(R) Dessert Pizza starts with a new dessert-style thin crust that's layered with vanilla sauce and covered with OREO(R) cookie crumbles. When it's fresh out of the oven, a sweet icing is drizzled on top. Beginning this week, customers can try Domino's new OREO(R) Dessert Pizza for just $3.99 with any purchase.

This bears repeating in case it wasn't clear from the press release above: America is now home to a pizza made of Oreo cookies. Covered with icing. Someone not only thought of this (and, weeping Jesus, can you imagine what got left in the reject pile?) but actually offered it for sale to the public. And the public did not immediately respond with tar, feathers and pitchforks. In fact, for four bucks and the price of a phone call, a guy will come to your house and hand one to your child.

(The commercial is about as appetizing as the pizza.)

I mean, it's hard not to admire a nation that develops a pizza made of Oreo cookies (covered with icing!), but it does kind of make you think that the terrorists have a point, doesn't it?

A take on chocolate chip pizza, of course.

I Wouldn't wish it on a dog. The picture alone is revolting. Give me a Eukanuba pizza, please.
