We're not entirely sure when pizza box drawings became a big deal, but it seems to have been some sort of Pizza Hut promotion that kicked the idea off. Now, there are hundreds of people each week asking for drawings or jokes from their local pizza shops.
The results range from the dreadful to the hilarious and they show that the nation's pizza workers are an easygoing bunch and that working in fast food doesn't need to dull your creativity.
So, here are some of the best pieces of pizza box art that have ever been unleashed upon the American public. Please don't eat pizza while you read, you may get tomato sauce all over your keyboard laughing. You have been warned.
1. They Asked For A Cute Heart
And they got what appears to be an acute heart. This would certainly stop your heart from beating for a second, but probably wasn't very romantic.
2. Oh But They Can
This weak joke didn't exactly leave us pie-eyed in amazement. It was a bit thin and tasteless for us. Maybe we should give him a pizza our mind?
3. That's A Pretty Good Penguin
We spent five minutes sketching a penguin of our own after seeing this pizza box and we have to say, they did way better than we did.
4. The Cow's Not Coming Home
"Draw a cow," they said. "Epic fail," they said. This may be the most lackluster effort to draw a cow in history. Who stole its legs?
5. We Hope She Did
The customer requested a message to cheer up his girlfriend. This is what the shop came back with, in a true testament to the old saying "Be careful what you wish for." Here's hoping she said yes?
6. Oh The Misery, The Misery!
This seems so unnecessary. We're not sure we could have eaten this pizza without calling The Samaritans and sending them to the store, just in case.
7. Pokemon Go!
We love the fact that not only did they draw an excellent Pikachu, but they also cut the pizza in the shape of a Pokeball!
8. Dinosaur In A Box
This is a thing of wonder. We love the idea of a dinosaur in a box of pizza. This would have turned us into repeat customers for sure.
9. Sarcasm In A Box
We know that working in a pizza shop is often not the most fun you can have, but do you need to bring your customers down too?
10. The Cold Hard Facts Of The Matter
We think that based on our experiences that this may be an accurate reflection of reality, but this customer must have been disappointed all the same.
11. That Told Them
Apparently, it was a Pizza Hut promotion that started this whole box drawing craze, and this pizza shop has clearly had enough of it. Shots have been fired - ball's in your court now, Pizza Hut.
12. They Asked For A Classy Cat
Domino's went all out to give their classy customer's cat a sense of style and distinction. You could see this fellow sidling up to you at the Ritz.
13. A Risque Joke
This joke was the best they could do to brighten up the customer's day. One out of 10, must try *ahem* harder. Plus it's rude.
14. The Unicorn Of Advertising
This guy requested a unicorn and he got one. We like that the artist decided to go all out advertising their own brand here too.
15. Tony Stark's First Move Off The Drawing Board
We don't think this pie cutter is going to be getting any job offers from Marvel in the near future, but this is very funny.
