Reports suggest that the delegate from Canada dared to suggest that pineapple on pizza was not only acceptable, but indeed delicious. This highly offended the delegate from Italy, who in his grand speech waxing grand about the delicate flavors and ingredients that should be on pizza and never tainted by pineapple, declared Canadian bacon to be fake. The normally unflappable Canadian was brought to tears as he attempted to remain ca
