The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

[By Nic Lindh on Saturday, 30 December 2006]

The culinary final frontier

Nic sings the praises of kebab pizza.

I’m a simple man, with simple tastes.

Keeping that in mind … friends, Romans, lend me your screens and allow me to show you the ultimate in human food:

Kebab Pizza

Kebab pizza. Click for larger version.

Kebabs are delicious. Pizza is delicious. When you join these two forces of deliciousness together, what do you end up with?

That’s right. Crazy delicious. That’s what.

The little plastic container at the top of the picture contains another Swedish pizza specialty—a cabbage salad made with vinegar, oil, and spices that complements the pizza. It should be noted here that of course neither the pizza nor the salad are in any way Swedish inventions. Every pizzeria I’ve set foot in has been operated and run by immigrants from various middle- or far-Eastern countries.

I, for one, would like to thank them for their contributions to the culinary treasures of the world.
