Simple but brilliant: Texting for pizza

On the surface, it doesn't quite make sense why you'd text a pizza order rather than just call it in. But sometimes ya just don't feel like dialing, waiting for someone to pick up, then explaining all the details, right? "Yes, I really do want a large with pineapples, artichokes, hamburger meat, and anchovies."
