6:00 AM -- Russia is the new fast food capital of the world, according to a report in The New York Times, which contains the following on-the-scene reporting that is just too tasty to let slide:
On a recent Sunday, Mr. Mamayev padded into the hallway of his apartment building in boxer shorts to take delivery of a pie topped with chorizo, salami, ham, Italian sausage and pepperoni.
“All I have in the refrigerator is a jar of lightly salted pickles,” said Mr. Mamayev, a 32-year-old diesel mechanic. “I thought, that’s not really something to eat. It’s easy and fast to order pizza. And pizza is tasty.”
If it were me, I'd throw out the gherkins, strain a few teaspoons of the lightly-salted remnants into a frozen tumbler, top off with vodka and -- voila! -- the filthiest dirty martini you've ever tasted. That meat pizza is bad for your heart, you know.
