…has never tried anything new.” – Einstein
It’s taken four days to come to the point, but in today’s strip, we’ve finally Batiuked around to it: Funky knows the Pizza Drone is going to fail because all of Tony’s other ideas have failed.
It seems to me that T-Bats really didn’t put a lot of time or effort into Funky’s list.
- Pizza Fax – There are still pizzerias in my area which accept take-out orders via fax. It started back in the bad old days of pay phones and copper landlines, but because some business still inexplicably insist on using the clunky, slow, and low-resolution fax even in an era with reliable and cheap internet, the service lives on.
- Pizza on a Stick – Popular at heartland State Fairs, apparently. Just not in Westview.
- Bucket of Pizza…well, okay, I’ll give him that one.
But I’d venture to say that most of Tony’s ideas have worked out pretty well for him. He immigrated to the US, opened a successful restaurant which provided him with a good living and a decent retirement (after all, he spends his winters in Florida) and – with the exception of taking on a business partner who holds little respect for him – shows evidence of having made some pretty good decisions over the years.
And notice that none of Tony’s failures were on the scale of nearly bankrupting the company by trying to sell shitty Ohio pizza in New York City, Funky.
