I didn't miss the title at all. I know that he said they were great. I just noticed that he said they were as great as the 2nd worst pizza joint that we have. And now it looks like you agree because you are telling me that they aren't even in your top ten either, so I would say that's a pretty good confirmation. I'm not writing off the review in the slightest. Remember, I'm the one that took note of it in the first place, and then YOU tried to write it off by calling him a stupid American who doesn't know any better, though now you are praising his praise of the place. I don't know, maybe if they understood the difference between pepperoni and pepperone they could have gotten a higher rating from the guy.

MD, you crack me up. You're still missing the point but by now you're just trolling. It's ok, though. I now know you are inept at understanding context and extrapolation, but it's ok man.

I don't know whether to encourage you to get out of Texas or stay there.

I told you last time that I don't live in Texas. Totally different part of the country.

Aside from that I just understand that the point of this whole conversation was that you said the majority of the world called spicy red pork tubes pepperoni, which is one word, and that Italians called green peppers Pepperone, which is another word. For some reason these 2 words confuse Italians and they mistake a meat for a vegetable, although the 2 are distinctly different. Since this happens you chose to blame everyone else and say they are wrong although you admit that its a term in common usage and is not really wrong, as long as its any location outside of Italy. Maybe if they separate the meats and the vegetables on the menu there would be less confusion.

HOLY F*CKING SH*T YOU STILL DON'T GET IT.

Before we get any further, you must answer the following question: what kind of word do you think pepperoni resembles? Look at the word and tell me where it comes from. Is it a German word, an English word, a Spanish word, a Swedish word, or an *Italian* word? (hint, hint)

Think hard. Look it up on wikipedia if you have to. I just glanced at it and the first line under etymology just jumps right out at ya, like a brick to the face.

And yes, it's still wrong. Where the hell did I say it's "not really wrong"? Are you reading half and making up the rest again? It's accepted, but it's still wrong. You just have to go with the flow of the country you're in, that's all. I don't know how many times you want me to say it.

Well if I must, then I must. When we keep bringing up the word pepper, it's black pepper that keeps coming to mind. That's just me. And I don't know why, but Roni just sounds like a noodle. I know it isn't nor does it come even close, but again, that's just me.

But none of that really matters because I know that Pepperoni is spicy red pork tube, and I know that when I want Spicy red pork tube on my pizza, I will ask for pepperoni, unless of course I'm in Italy for whatever crazy reason, in which case I would look at the menu and figure out what they call it because if I say pepperoni they will mistake it for pepperone and give me a green pepper pizza to which I am not a big fan of (I like Green peppers, just not on pizza), whereas in the states and I'm assuming in other areas I could just say green pepper people will understand what I'm talking about. Lucky for me, this quirk is in only one part of the world and my chances of being part of an awkward situation are slim.

p.s. I love the wiki reference. You aren't still angry that I called you out on the first line reference quoting, are you? My goal was to teach you to read the entire article so that you would see that definitions change over time so you wouldn't accidentally use something from the early 1900's again. Don't fret about it, it's water under bridge, everybody makes mistakes. Remember, knowing is half the battle.

Aaaaaand we're done here. This is already way above your head. If you can't answer that simple question, just stop posting.

Aaaaaaand again we're done here. The only people who call it pepperoni are English-speaking countries, genius. Unless you're at Pizza Hut, France doesn't call it that, Germany doesn't call it that, Spain doesn't call it that, Portugal doesn't call it that, Greece doesn't call it that, Czech Republic doesn't call it that, Hungary doesn't call it that, etc. etc. That's what I've been trying (and obviously have failed) to explain to you. You're actually in the minority. I guess I can't really blame you for not knowing that, seeing as how the thought of you in another country besides Mexico is comical.

So with that logic, we should stop calling hamburgers "hamburgers" then. Your ignorance is astounding. My only hope is that this is all one big troll, but judging by your posting history since you've been here, I'm pretty sure it's not.

You asked me what the word pepperoni resembled to me, and I answered the question. My apologies if it wasn't the answer that you were looking for, perhaps you should clarify what you would like. Communication is the key after all.

It's like calling a pizza with salamino a pepperoni pizza; it's wrong but the vernacular is so common that people overlook it...just don't say it in Italy. The entire rest of the world is literally wrong in this, but no one really bothers to correct it because it's so common (peperoni are bell peppers, not spicy salame). For some reason the rest of the world fails to see the root word "pepper" in "peperone" and thinks it comes from a pig.

Well now we have an issue here. Look at the parts that I put in bold. For most of the thread you have been referring to the rest of the world, and then suddenly in that last post you name off 7 countries that also pronounce it differently. So either you lied about the rest of the world, or you lied in your last post.

Except that hamburgers isn't the definition of a word, it's the word itself. Just like we don't describe shrimp or prawns simply by saying shrimp or prawn.

And I'm impressed that you took the time to shuffle through what, 5 years of posting history now. I have to admit I do it too sometimes, got some real gems in there. I especially like the Shining One saga.

Edit: I was thinking about the Hamburger reference on my way to work and I think I will strike my last comment because it does appear to work in this circumstance.

We start off with it being called a Hamburg-er, as confirmed by you. But no one calls it a hamburg-er anymore, they move on to saying hamburger. But even over the last few decades we've stopped even calling it a hamburger and just go straight up burger. If it's a specialty burger then we put the specialty name before the burger i.e. Mushroom and Swiss Burger, Southwestern Burger, Jalapeno Burger, and so on. The only time that hamburger is used is when you are referring to the most basic bread, meat, lettuce, pickle, and tomato variation. And even then people tend to just say burger. But you never hear anyone say Hamburg-er.

The entire rest of the world who calls it pepperoni. Deductive reasoning, Jethro.

I like pie. Also:

Greenland (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaat [kaˈla:ɫit ˈnuna:t]) is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and later Denmark) for more than a millennium. In 2008, the people of Greenland passed a referendum supporting greater autonomy; 75% of votes cast were in favour. Greenland is, in terms of area, the world's largest island,[7] over 3/4 of which is covered by the only contemporary ice sheet outside of Antarctica. With a population of 56,370 (2013), it is the least densely populated country in the world.[8]

Greenland has been inhabited off and on for at least the last 4,500 to 5,000 years by Arctic peoples whose forebears migrated there from Canada. Norsemen settled on the uninhabited southern part of Greenland beginning in the 10th century. Inuit peoples arrived in the 13th century. The Norse colonies disappeared in the late 15th century. In the early 18th century, Scandinavia and Greenland came back into contact with each other, and Denmark established sovereignty over the island.

Having been ruled by Denmark–Norway for centuries, Greenland (Danish: Grønland) became a Danish colony in 1814, and a part of the Danish Realm in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark. In 1979, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, and in 2008, Greenlanders voted to transfer more power from the Danish royal government to the local Greenlandic government. Under the new structure, in effect since 21 June 2009,[3] the Danish government retains control of foreign affairs, national defence, the police force, and the justice system. It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, slated to diminish gradually over time as Greenland's economy is strengthened by increased income from the extraction of natural resources.

Thread about how to pronounce them little little "gambas" or "camarones" (one is totally different to the other , at least in spanish btw, and to be precise in Venezuelan, you walk a border down here and there´s a whole new lexicon to learn) and now that I am checking it back, its about pizza hate related to toppings, proper locations of personal residences and Star Wars hate.

Yes OOPE, I love you all
