image for New Ad for Pizza has Spoof Writer in a Quandary

A major pizza chain's new ad is telling customers "Try our inspired hand-tossed pizza." According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, inspired means "outstanding or brilliant in a way or to a degree suggestive of divine inspiration." Divine pertains to God or at least god-like. So if I'm reading this correctly, someone at this pizza company is making the claim that they are selling hand-tossed manna to the masses. That is one lofty claim.

I'm wondering, should I take them at their word, plunk down my $5.99 for a medium pizza two-topping pizza-divine seems to be selling cheap these days-and see for myself what truly inspired pizza tastes like? I've always been a bit hesitant to believe everything I read, but honestly, how can you pass up manna at that price?

What stops me is the hand-tossed part. Now in America, someone who tosses something is simply someone who throws something. However, this ad for this newly inspired pizza appeared on a widely-read satire site originating in the UK. From regular readings of the forums on that site, I've come to know that the definition for a tosser is quite a bit different and not at all someone I'd want handling my pizza.

So this begs the question. Should I take my chances and try this company's new inspired hand-tossed pizza as they suggest, or go with my gut and say "no thanks. Manna or no manna, I ain't touching a pizza that's been hand-tossed."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
