Peter Otterloop Jr. sure is picky of food ingredients touching one another.
In other words, NOT pizza.
I wonder who or what was the Inspiration to Richard for Petey? I hope it wasn’t himself. But, Cartoonists are a strange lot!
Please, my nephew was pickier than Petey is for quite a few of his years.
How about pizza with “salsa verde”?
One of my kids likes to take all the toppings off of the pizza, place them in groups, (i.e. all the pepperoni in one pile, bell peppers in another, etc.) then eat the recently un-topped pizza, and eat the toppings from least to most favorite. I eat mine edges and crust first, making my way to the middle or to what looks like the best bite. Of course, this was when we could actually eat pizza.
Oh GEEZ! A participation medal? When will this madness pass? Y’know, kids KNOW when you pass this stuff off on ‘em; it might confuse ’em, but they KNOW it’s nonsense.
Petey is still my hero, but I must admit he does not know the pleasures of pizza!
