Recursive Pizza?

My daughter sent me the link below, commenting on how often she finds stuff from "my world," that is to say, the world of rhetorical theory. Many of my colleagues would probably respond that such discoveries should be expected because "Everything is rhetorical!" And indeed, I am likely to agree with them. When my friends and I converse using only quoted lines from Seinfeld, Shakespeare or The Andy Griffith Show, I am quite aware of the rhetorical and cultural framing, self-identifying discourse communities, and terministic screens at work in our chit-chat.

But whudathunk Pizza as a ontological examination and revelation of social construction and community? well, This guy (John Riepenhoff), that's who. Enjoy the rhetorical cheesy goodness of this unusual blog entry...
