I'd just like to take a moment to thank Dominoes Pizza for altering the meaning of the word "unlimited" to mean "three or less". As in "16 inch pizza, unlimited toppings, $10.99".

I suppose that when I order, I should also check the meaning of some of those other words, like "inch" and "pizza", to make sure that they don't mean something completely different in domino-speak.

Next week: "Infinite" redefined to mean "half-a-dozen".
