    If that's not a Portlandia sketch, it should be.

    Last December I was a substitute social-studies teacher at a middle school, and I told the teacher in advance I would just run a trivia contest for half of her classes.

    So I wrote up my trivia questions, and the two rounds were Holiday Films & Star Wars.

    During the first round, I asked this question:

    #6. What noted actor provided the voice of the conductor in 2004's animated film, The Polar Express?

    A lot of the students didn't know it, so I gave them this hint, "He's the most beloved actor in America."

    And you would not believe how many times I heard a student answer with, "Johnny Depp."

    Eeaughhhh...

    God damn dude, that's almost as bad as when all those kids thought you were Ross Geller.

    Almost

    I'm a hack so I'd just write out the lyrics to "Feed me, Seymour!"

    Tom Hanks just looks at the order and sends you a pizza with pineapple on it in return.

    Further confession: I have absolutely no idea why I hold my food opinions as strongly as I do!

    Probably some long-buried childhood connection between a spoiled little shit and their incredibly picky eating habits?

    I will eat... all of the food, eventually. I have always been this way, and it made things incredibly easy for my mother, especially when we were Sad Poor.

    "But!" you say "Cheese pizzas are usually cheaper than ones with more toppings!"

    Yeah, but mom didn't wanna eat just a cheese pizza, and this was the last pizza we were gonna have for awhile. And I wanted to get full on whatever we were eating.

    I dunno!

    Still, I'll hard pass on Hanks anything.

    As someone who owns the 2004 version of the Ladykillers, believe me when I tell you I am a big fan of Tom Hanks.

    You're entitled to not like cheese pizza for any reason, whether it's entirely logical and explicable or completely arbitrary. It's the way you're framing this as a more universal opinion that applies to society at large (like, cheese pizza is for literal children or people who lack better taste) that sucks. "I don't understand why people like this guy, he's like the cheese pizza of guys" is akin to saying "I don't understand why everyone doesn't have the exact same taste as me!" which is, I imagine, why you've met so much resistance in this thread.

    cheese pizza definitely isn't bad, but I will almost never actually order one

    but if people are having like a pizza party or something, I will be happy to see some regular cheese pizza there

    None of those answers seem right to me though Nic Cage is closest.

    It’s absolutely nic cage.

    It’s a topping that makes its presence known immediately and loudly, overwhelming everything about the pizza. People’s opinions are sharply divided with no middle ground.

    Cheese pizza is my go to if I'm just getting a slice or something along those lines

    If I'm ordering a whole pizza I'll probably throw some other stuff on there, but most places that have by the slice will only have like, cheese, pepperoni, and sausage, and of those my favorite tends to be cheese (I also enjoy sausage, but usually when it's on a pizza with other things as well)

    Usually when I order a pizza it will have some combination of green peppers, onions and/or mushrooms on it.

    I adore a good vegi-pizza.

    Like in general but also specifically for this, that's not what I'd consider a common pizza topping but it sounds fuckin' good

    Those people are fools. One of my favorite pizzas to get is a two topping, grilled chicken and crispy bacon, with white sauce.

    mostly because Rothfuss hasn't finished and may never finish the books

    also because The Wise Man's Fear was not nearly as good as Name of the Wind and I worry what that portends for any future books if he does eventually finish them.

    Does he? By the end of Wise Man's Fear there is so much ground left to cover to explain how we get to present day, trying to tackle that in one book would result in either a horribly rushed novel with godawful pacing or THE LONGEST BOOK.
