"As a high school student working at a local pizza pub in Jeffersonville, Indiana, Papa John's founder John Schnatter realized that there was something missing from national pizza chains; a superior-quality traditional pizza delivered to the customer's door. His dream was to one day open a pizza restaurant that would fill that void.
In 1983, "Papa" John Schnatter delivered his last campus pizza, picked up his business degree from Ball State University, and went back to Jeffersonville, Indiana. There, at age 22, he knocked down the broom closet in his father's tavern (Mick's Lounge), sold his prized 1972 Z28 Camaro, purchased $1,600 worth of used restaurant equipment, and began delivering pizzas out of the back of the bar.
Papa John's opened its first pizza restaurant in 1985 and to this day is committed to delivering on its brand promise of "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza." Papa John's is the recognized quality leader of the pizza category and now owns or franchises over 3,000 restaurants worldwide.
Please buy this DVD."

"I grow very tired of having to explain my love for this show to people who seem offended by it's very existence.
To sum it up, dumb it down, and wrap it in a convienent "awkward" little package for people who constantly feel the need to question the merit of this shows humor, I will give examples of WHY the show appeals to me:
1) I enjoy the shows vibrant use of colors. This may seem irrelevant or a ridiculous reason to some, but I find the look of the show to be aesthetically pleasing to my eye. Visually, if I like what I see, that keeps me watching.
2) I enjoy Davin Woods music he creates to accompany certain segments of the show. The man knows what he is doing and is very talented at what he does. Think of the music that accompanies the Cinco commercials, the shows intro, or the hilariously mellodramatic music that plays during the "Damnit" bit of the "Hacky Sack Extreme" skit in Season One.
3) I find that the show brilliantly parodies media. In Paticular, the awkwardness of "live television" (Steve Brule, Married News Team). Local afternoon news shows ("The New You"). Ridiculous "caught on video, candid camera" style shows (Spagett). And last but not least, the shameless companies that will churn out useless products just so you will plunk down your hard earned dollar on crap you could live without (Cinco product commercials). There is loads of subtext here...and if you don't see it, you may be blind.
4) I love the bizarre way that they mix comedy with elements of horror. (Lazy Horse Mattresses, "It's Not Jackie Chan", The Child Clown Safety Video, Maria Bamford's very realistic potrayal of severe mental illness, "Druwing on Drawing" etc.)
5) I love the editing style, I am especially a fan of the "Glitch" segments.
6) The attention to detail. Any number of segments look like they could have come straight out of 1993, and if taken out of context of the show you would be hard pressed, in some cases, to find evidence proving otherwise.
7) The guys seem like they are genuinely having fun with the show and the universe they have created. They believe in their work, regardless of the many people who just "Don't get it" or "get it but don't like it". I respect that.
I could go on and on but you get the idea. While YOU may not like it, and that is your perrogative, many people DO...so much so that the show is on it's 4th season and a 5th season has recently been greenlit.
The show will continue to exist and cause many late night couch potatoes, who haven't joined the fold, to scratch their collective head and wonder "How the hell does anybody find this funny?". If you have ever found yourself asking that question, try not being so offensive and realize that the buck doesn't stop with you. Humor is subjective."

"Hi, Steve. I hope you read this. Have you talked to Jerry lately? I can't get a hold of him on the phone and I think he might have left to go out of town. He didn't tell anyone if he did, but his TV is on but I think he just left it on so no one would realize he really had left. If you see Janice, or Sherry, or Carmen, I need you to ask them to call me. They'll know why when you tell them. It's a really long story and I think a partially-nude, latex-fetish chatroom isn't probably the place to get into that. I'm... I'm just not ready. (heavy sigh)
Anyway. Hope you enjoy those DVDs I sent you.

"Slugs are hermaphrodites, having both female and male reproductive organs.
Once a slug has located a mate, they encircle each other and sperm is exchanged through their protruded genitalia. A few days later around 30 eggs are laid into a hole in the ground, or under the cover of objects such as fallen logs.
A commonly seen practice among many slugs is apophallation. The penis of these species is curled like a cork-screw and often becomes entangled in their mate's genitalia in the process of exchanging sperm. When all else fails, apophallation allows the slugs to separate themselves by one or both of the slugs chewing off the other's penis. Once its penis has been removed, a slug is still able to mate subsequently, but using only the female parts of its reproductive system.
