Poll: The Most Asinine Comment on the Post-Dispatch's Pi Article

Posted By on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 4:38 PM


Bumped: Only a few hours left to vote!

As I write this, Jake Wagman's fine Post-Dispatch article on President Barack Obama inviting the Delmar Loop pizza restaurant Pi to the White House has garnered 178 reader comments.

While a few readers are thrilled to see a locally owned St. Louis business gain national attention, others are, frankly, batshit insane.

I should point out that these batshit insane comments are in no way the fault of the Post-Dispatch. Really, the source of the comments is beside the point. I'm just flabbergasted that this rare instance of national attention for a St. Louis restaurant has led to...well, you'll see.

So which comment is the most asinine? I invite you, Gut Check readers, to choose.

That Chicago style thick pizza does look good! Hope Obama gets diarrhea!

Dear Veggie Girl: One American ideal The Current President of US bragged about in Saudi Arabia is loyalty. He insulted out country on foreign soil. He said we are not a Christian country even though the Founding Fathers wrote centered on this in Federalist papers. And now he orders CHICAGO DEEP DISH PIZZA from St. Louis. He's not even loyal to his hometown, or his hometown business. While we are gettting a life, Veggie Girl needs to get a brain.

Will the owner of this pizza joint, bow to his majisty obama like obama bowed like a servant to the king of saudi arabia? I too would like to know who's paying for this? Does he do this all the time? I can only imagine the cost to taxpayers if his majisty has people flown in from all over the country to feed him. --but why should i be surprised, his majisty spends taxpayer's money like its going out of style... Glad I know now never to spend one dime inside this place. --Long Live Imo's at the Original St. Louis style pizza

stlsasquatch, hmmm, maybe all the liberal whiners deserve a taste (albeit small) of what we have been listening to for the last 8 years! If I hear one more story about Obama's favorite color or what kind of toilet paper he uses, I think I am going to barf! Has anyone seen Idiocracy? Its becoming all too familiar...I am with lilmac, he will be lucky to last 4 years! BTW, it cracks me up how heated a conversation about pizza can end up in STL. Let's face it, you are only a true St. Louisan if you LIKE provel cheese and Imo's pizza. All of the rest of you are diluting our culture and can keep your opinions to yourselves!

How many murdered cops, street thugs, and slashed up people does one have to step over to get in and out of PI there on Delmar ? Mr.Sommers should serve mace and a Smith & Wesson anytime after 4 pm with his PI pizza. I wouldn't go near the place.
You have until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14, to vote. Results Wednesday. May the worst commenter win!
