    It pains me to report that the man formerly known as Pizza Boy did not pull off the most amazing pizza-eating feat in history. In fact, his is not even the most impressive in the second half of 2009.

    Matt McClellan ate nothing but pizza for a month and lost 24 pounds (from 203 to 179), lowered his cholesterol by more than 80 points, lost more than 10% of his body fat and lowered his blood pressure. You can read about it here.

    Not sure it's really the same thing. Per the article a nutritionist designed a

    six-slices-a-day eating plan for McClellan that includes a variety of pizza toppings for maximum nutrition: less pepperoni, more avocado and organic Roma tomatoes.


    His diet included sushi pizza and apple pizza.
    Essentially, he ate a healthy diet atop crust...

    I think our man is experiencing a bit of withdrawal. He can't stop himself from eating and tells me that he feels hungry all the time now. He's put back on all the weight he lost during pizza month. Today he begged me to bet him again just so he could go back on the pizza regimen. I figured that when the bet finally ended he'd be tired of pizza for a long time and that he'd lose weight. Turns out that, at least for now, the exact opposite is true. Who knew?

    Saw this story at the Trib's web site today and it reminded of good old October. Life was so much simpler back then. :wink:

    Mike Hughlett at the Chicago Tribune wrote:In the 1970s, Joe Perrino worked the dough, making the foundation for pizzas at Home Run Inn, the restaurant owned by his father, Nick. Back then, Home Run Inn made frozen pizzas, too, but they were a sideline. Nick Perrino's passion was his pizzeria.

    But the younger Perrino had bigger dreams, and to him the future was in frozen pies. So when he took charge in 1990, Joe Perrino put his plans into action, taking on the multinational giants of the frozen pizza world.

    Today, Home Run Inn is the leading frozen pizza brand in the Chicago area. It's no small feat: Although local food brands often have strong followings, they rarely trump national brands in major categories such as frozen pizza.

    I'm sure Pizza Boy -- sorry, he'll always be Pizza Boy to me -- will be thrilled to see this news. :D

    Pizza Boy had to have a minor, scheduled procedure at the hospital today, which required going about 40 hours without eating beforehand. Days ahead, he'd already selected D'Agostino's Pizza in Glenview as his first meal after the procedure since it was right near the hospital. Was I surprised by this type of pre-planning? Not even remotely. :D

    For the record, he ordered a thin sausage and pepperoni pizza.

    I cannot understand how this is an addiction. It may have an element of obsessive-compulsive manifested in obsessive pizza eating. My sister is a psychologist. I just guess.

    Lest anyone erroneously think that Pizza Boy is still only eating pizza, here's a shot of a birthday 'cake' he requested, which another one of our co-workers made for him . . .

    Not only did he request this, he was delighted to receive it and couldn't wait to take it home and eat it. :D

    Was this inspired by the Combo Cake on Thisiswhyyourefat.com? It also uses Cheese Whiz as mortar but is a little more structurally elaborate. Here is the picture, from their website:

    I don't know whether or not to hope PB's cake was inspired by this one. I'm terrified, fascinated, and slightly in love with the idea that there are independent origin stories for each, that two people could come up with basically the same macabre monstrosity.

    Fear not. She was indeed inspired by the Combo Cake shown at thisiswhyyourefat.com. The requested element was the specific flavors of combos. Pizza Boy requested zesty salsa and pepperoni flavored Combos.

    at the Wall Street Journal, Aaron Rutkoff wrote:Manhattan is home to some of the country's oldest and most celebrated pizzerias, but the great metropolis also holds many mediocre slices. Colin Hagendorf has tasted it all.

    Mr. Hagendorf, a 28-year-old Brooklyn resident, may know New York-style pizza more exhaustively than any other living soul. During a 2½-year quest, he has sampled nearly every pie sold by the slice in Manhattan. The feat—involving 362 slice joints—is unmatched by any modern-day enthusiast, according to local pizza experts.

    Completely impressive, especially the documentation aspect, which can be brutally exhausting.
