“Excellent call on the pizza tonight, Donny! That pie was totally radical!”

“Well I suppose that is true, Mikey. I mean, Canadian bacon and pineapple is as far from the origins of pizza as you can get.”

“Huh? I just said the pizza was rad, dude.”

“And I’m agreeing with you. These toppings wouldn’t have been native to old world Naples when the pizza was first introduced to Italian cuisine.”

“Whoa. You lost me, bro.”

“Oh, I’m sorry. You were probably using the word in its political sense. In which case, I’d have to disagree with you. My personal beliefs and traditions were definitely not put into question by the quality of this delivery pizza.”

“Dude, Donny. I’m just saying that the pizza was really bodacious.”

“That’s going a bit far, don’t you think? There’s nothing really courageous about dough covered in cheese and sauce. Unless, of course, you’re referring to the Great Depression when pizza was popularized in the United States as a symbol of getting by on meager foodstuffs.”

“What I mean to say is that the pie was gnarly, dude.”

“Now you’re speaking my language. That crust was a bit chewy, wasn’t it? Perhaps not overly dangerous as a meal, but definitely challenging on the whole.”

“No, no, no. What I’m trying to say is the pizza was tubular, that’s all.”

“Are you feeling alright, Mikey? You seem to have forgotten your rudimentary shapes. You do know a pizza is round and flat, don’t you? How many fingers am I holding up?”

“Dude, seriously. I may like to party and slack off now and then but I’m not stupid. This whole conversation is totally bogus!”

“Really? I don’t feel like our rapport is fraudulent. Or do I come off as sounding artificial to you?”

“You come off sounding like a dork, Donny!”

“Oh wow. Do you even know what a dork is, Mikey?”

“God, you’re impossible to talk to! All I’m saying is the pizza was good! Alright? You get it now? The pizza was good!”

“Oh. Yeah, I suppose it was pretty awesome.”

“Dude, don’t go overboard. I mean, yeah it was good but it wasn’t like breathtaking or anything.”
