    All I know is, if the guy next door to the pizza place were giving away free beer on the same day to those who could order it in English, the ACLU would be at his business raising hell.

    So go to BabelFish Translation and find out what "I want a Pizza" is in Spanish. Prolly not any more complicated than "Pizza por favor".

    And if you had guts, you'd do it with a real red neck accent too just to piss everyone off!

    "Hey! HEY! PEET-Zuh poor Fay-Vore".

    It doesn't say it has to be PERFECT Spanish! :lol:

    Carne de Deep Dish amantes de la pizza por favor

    15 seconds to free pizza

    but yeah, it's bias. The aclu took a cheese steak seller to court b/c he demanded everyone order in english.

    he won, thanks to the Constitution.

    There is no language named, "Mexican." People from Mexico speak Spanish and/or one of several indigenous languages.

    One day only between 5 and 8 PM. The ad is for a Pepperoni Pie but no clue about the size. It might be good marketing but my guess is that the pizza joint will take a beating.

    At this point, if the owner were smart he'd repeat the offer for a different language each week. Keep the publicity going.

    As a past customer, I plan on calling them on that day to voice my dispeasure. Will they listen if I say it in English?
