Give Peace a Chance

Listen, we love a well-placed karate chop as much as the next guy, but we can all agree that peace is the best, right?

The most obvious reason, of course, is because no one gets hurt. However, a second, often-overlooked reason for why peace and harmony rule is because when different cultures get along, they start swapping recipes. One clear example of cultural companionship at work is the Mexican Pizza. Crisp pizza shells, refried beans, and a layer of seasoned beef make the “crust,” while pizza sauce, a three-cheese blend, and tomatoes make the topping, creating a delicious love child of Mexican and Italian cuisine. ¡Buen Apetito! Doesn’t solidarity sound delicious? Now for all you international ambassadors reading this right now, you better get back to work or else we’re never going to have stuff like Baklavat Dogs or Sushi Cereal. Hmmmm, delish…ish.
