Speaking of Pizza...

Here's a brilliant example of advertising logic: "When pizza's on a bagel, you can have pizza anytime." Oh, reaaaallly? My teacher friend Jill used this commercial as an example of the rhetorical figure enthymeme, a three-part deductive argument with an unstated assumption which must be true for the premises to lead to the conclusion. To put it simply, why the hell does putting pizza on a bagel allow you to eat pizza anytime???

It's all so TRUE. The conclusion of the argument is: you can have pizza anytime. Why? Because it's a bagel! So, the underlying assumption is: If something is on a bagel, you can eat it anytime (with the understood truth that pizza is something that you can't have at breakfast unless you are crazypants). Thus we have: If something is on a bagel, you can eat it anytime PIZZA is on a bagel! Yay, you can eat pizza anytime.

What if I don't have a microwave or oven and they're frozen? What happens if I want them and the grocery store is closed? I WANT MY PIZZA NOW!

I love that there is a lesson in rhetoric embedded in a bagel bites commercial.

What you can't have though, is a roof of your mouth if you bite into them too quick because the nuclearly hot bagels melt the skin right off! ;)

Finally someone who feels the way I do! What if I'm in Siberia w/no fire? How, pray tell, do you expect me to eat the pizza in freezing cold temperatures? Seriously, I can't watch the video, but I still find it funny!
