Slices of life

The proverbial space invaders, once they’ve conquered this big blue marble, might look over the scene and proclaim: “This species developed a pizza-centric economy.”

I wouldn’t disagree. Several pizza joints deliver coupons to your door every single week. And the last time I hit up Papa John’s, they left me a reusable coupon, redeemable online only: it’s good for 50 percent off all regularly-priced items, any time between now and Labor Day.

Now I wonder: who among us hardy travelers has ever paid full price for a pizza, from Papa John, from another chain, from a local shop? Because everybody seems to have coupons.

    In purely economical terms, using the coupon means you’re paying only full price for it. Without the coupon, you’re paying a premium.

    s/ the Neil Degrasse Tyson of economics

    Any takers on the bet that some people would brag about paying the premium?

    Then again, come the collapse of society, pizza coupons will probably be valuable. (As toilet paper).
