The only pizza company to ever deliver pizza in space was Pizza Hut, because it was the only delivery option. If your planet isn’t in the delivery zone, what would you do?
In 2001, Pizza Hut became the first restaurant to deliver pizza by rocket to the residents of the International Space Station while orbiting Earth.
If I was the astronaut who opened the hatch when it arrived, I know what I would’ve said. “Really? We haven’t had pizza in 6 months and you guys ordered Pizza Hut?”
Don’t get me wrong, Pizza Hut isn’t horrible. I suppose in times of desperation Pizza Hut will suffice, but I can think of many better pizza options. In space you unfortunately don’t have that many options as most pizza delivery areas sadly stop far below low Earth orbit. If you live on another planet, that leaves no option but to pick it up yourself.
I believe that’s why there are so many UFO sightings.
Maybe their home planet doesn’t have any pizza places. Maybe they don’t like what they have where they live. We all know what it’s like to get sick of eating the same pizza when you don’t have many choices in your neighborhood, especially if it’s not that good. Sometimes you need a change.
There may be some races of aliens who are hell bent on destroying the Earth, but I think most are just looking for a good pizza place.
I’ve been known to hop a plane to fly 1,500 miles to New York City because I’ve had a craving for good pizza. If you have the technology to fly across the universe, how is that any different?
People always ask why the Aliens don’t just make themselves known. The answer to that is simple. In terms of the universe, as I’ve mentioned in some of my other articles, the Earth isn’t really the best of neighborhoods (read There HAS to be intelligent life in the universe…).
Think about a time when you were driving around in a sketchy part of town. You locked your doors and rolled up your windows. You didn’t stop for fear of getting robbed or carjacked. The aliens probably feel the same way.
If you knew you were going to get killed, kidnapped, or probed for experimentation when you were just trying to pick up a pizza, would you stop in the bad part of the universe?
Let’s face it, humans are nuts. Most days I don’t want to be on this planet, never mind interstellar species who have the ability to come and go. The moral of this story is if had the ability to travel the universe in search of the perfect pizza, you know I would.
I’m sure I’m not alone.
