Carbs on pizza is nothing new. Small, diced potato is a reasonable occurrence. Pasta, however, isn’t quite so regular. The man in question is Bill English. He happens to be the prime minister of New Zealand, so isn’t without influence. It makes the whole thing even more concerning, frankly.
Posting some pizza pictures to Facebook, Bill says: “Cooked dinner for the family last night – like if you agree with tinned spaghetti on pizza!”
The post, two days after being made public, has nearly 9,000 likes.
Hundreds commented. As you will probably have guessed, opinions are mixed, with some erring towards the “atrocious” side, and others calling the dish “awesome.”
The pineapple and spaghetti have even apparently won Bill votes. It seems to have lost him a few too.
There were positive views…
Dan Robinson commented: “I don’t support your policies (vote Green boys) but spaghetti on pizza is something i can get behind”.
Alison Franklin added: “Totally agree that spaghetti on pizza is yum BUT who else has noticed how runny canned spaghetti is nowadays.”
The 55-year-old PM even replied to Alison. He informed her: “I drained off some of the liquid but not quite enough since pizza was a bit soggy in the middle. Goes well with pineapple.”
And there were negative ones…
“I might vote Labour now Bill. This is like s****** on Italy”
And another wrote: “Sorry Bill, any man who puts spaghetti on a pizza is not fit to run my country, you cannot count on my vote come election time”.
