    I always wondered why cartoons talk about quicksand so fucking much. Growing up I thought it was a realistic danger people had to look out for.

    The more interesting question is how did they avoid botulism from 1000 year old canned food.
    Anchovies are still a thing on pizza, it’s just not nearly as common as it once was, kind of like orange julius

        They come pre-aged, so it doesn't count.

    Anchovies were bigger in the 80's and 90's. You can still get them, but you need to go to a real pizza place. Dominos, Little Caesars, and Papa John's probably won't do it.

    They're not bad. If you are okay with the sort of salty/unctuous quality of black olives on pizza, you might like them. They're kind of like that but less of the olive texture and slightly more 'fishy'.

      It's rare in the big chains because your average teen doesn't like acknowledging that food was alive at some point and don't like handling them

      And they also make the freezer smell like fish which is a thing all ages dislike

        I've never worked in a pizza place, but unless the place is selling absolutely tons of them, I'd have assumed they'd remain sealed in a can until ordered. I don't know why a pizza place would have fresh or frozen anchovies on hand especially when the canning process is largely what gives them the salty flavor people are looking for.

      I'm surprised anchovies aren't making a comeback with all the deenz shit.

    I used to get anchovies on pizza when I was a kid. I probably tried it initially because of this episode. Eventually I decided I didn't like them that much and stopped.

    It was the 'weird' pizza ingredient that some people loved for awhile. Then pineapple or pineapple/ham became that thing for the 00's-10's. I'm not sure if something has supplanted that yet. Maybe people are too jaded these days to be thrilled with new pizza toppings.

      Just a warning, either covering or dipping it into peanut butter doesn't ruin it but it doesn't enhance the experience much either. Though, it's better when the pizza is more cheesy than saucey and with a breadier crust. Also works better with warm pizza than hot, surprisingly. I usually go with Jif, but I've been meaning to give it a shot with the newer Reese's peanut butter. Maybe that'll be a bit better?

      If the episode continued another minute, they'd probably shoot him with a tranquilizer dart and then make a joke that suggests they have to do that several times a week.

    It's because if someone is trapped in water you have to animate the water and the wet clothes
    You don't have to animate sandy clothes...it's a cost saver.
    So you see, the quicksand was a standin for a body of water.
    A narrative device.

    I see pizza with anchovies on the menu of pizzerias all the time in Italy, but we might not be the most reliable source on this because you can readily get pizza with fries as a topping here and Americans apparently think this is insane.

    Huh? I guess I believe you, it'd be weird bait. Do you live somewhere rural or non-cosmopolitan? Anchovies along with pineapples are the two very popular pizza toppings that a lot of people can't stand, hence the jokes about them.

        Nobody, the fact that having anchovies, or pineapples, or whatever on pizza is such a meaningless but invulnerable preference is the joke.

      Seriously? Two seperate places near me have them and I have actually ordered it before. They're pretty good.

      i lived in both rural and relatively big cities my whole life and never managed to find a single pizza place that offered anchovies as a topping

    I'm not really a big fan of fish in general, but I really dig anchovies on pizza. On their own they're not great, but put them on a combination dish and you have gold. It pairs really well with the other meats and veggies on the pizza. It makes the whole pizza really salty though, so that may not be your thing.
