00 cold pizza & warm beer the breakfast of champions. 23.03.15


Here’s a guilty pleasure of man, woman, and beast (hey, give the dog a little pizza n’ pivo, too… let him live a little). I LIKE it… as do most normal human beings. God made the hops n’ God made the wheat, but it took mankind to come up with a breakfast that can’t be beat! I would eat it on a boat, I would eat with a goat, I love cold pizza n’ warm beer, shout it to the world loud n’ clear.

Have a smile, dears…
