I agree it's more of a pie than anything.
This made me laugh!
Isn't "pizza" Italian for "pie"?
Nope, the closest word for pie in Italian would be torta.
I met some tarts in Italy.
Probably not the same thing.
I feel your pain. My given name is Mitzi. I am use to Missy, Misty, Mitzy, even Mitze. But my favorite happened recently, "Mixy." Lol I rather like it.
No "Mxyzptlk" yet?
back to the off topic discussion. Over the years I've heard a lot of stories about the origin of pizza. Looking at:
Pizza - Wikipedia
History of pizza - Wikipedia
Most of them appear to have been just that stories.
Along similar lines this article lists both thick and thin crust pizzas as "Chicago Style" with the thin outselling the thick
Chicago-style pizza - Wikipedia
Here is yet another example from lunch today. Same restaurant as the first pizza in this thread, but different person taking the order.

You should tell them your last name is 'Bot'...
Pizza culture is quite interesting. From the American Pizzeria to the Italian Street Vendor style. When I was in Wales, I went to a Pizzeria thinking I could walk in and get a slice. Looked just like any Pizzeria in the US I have been too...but they were fully booked so I ended up sitting on a couch by the fireplace eating my pizza.
Well when you go there again you can count on it being "Ottomatic"
I hope I don't run afoul of any rules related to classified information, but!
We all know how the Rooskies roll out their new super-secret weapons during their May Day (Victory Day, May 9th) Parades, and how Kim Jong Un (and his predecessors) showcase new weapons systems during their April 15th, "Day of the Sun" military parade. That being said, I have a picture, acquired secretly, by intelligence agents and smuggled out of an undisclosed country of an "Ottomobile". We don't know for sure the intended purpose of this vehicle, but taken along with video recently leaked by "Wikileaks" of a previously undisclosed US military special operations unit practicing covert operations, well, judge for yourself.

Leaked video of previously undisclosed special operations unit.
Could this signal a plan to infiltrate one of those high profile parades? Look at Otto's profile picture, notice any similarities with the soldiers in the video and photo?
Clearly , Sgt Price, that Ottomobile above is a propaganda weapon spewing out brainwashing false news. Otto subtlely has used those techniques in written form and images on this forum to create his personal cash cow. from which to buy a private island in the Turks and Caicos and shut out the world as soon as he has secured sufficient arms , ammunition, pizza, beer and unworldly women to sait his ravenous appetite for the good life as he sees it. ..............................................................gaines
I got kicked out of a cafet in Australia for eating pizza with my hands.
I like the Ottomobile, though I'd prefer a .50 cal mounted in back over a drumset. I'm happy to convert any truck into a technical.
There is actually a photo of a kubelwagen in North Africa out there with "OTTO" written on it. A real live Ottomobile.
Yet another example. I bought a breakfast sandwich and tea at the Starbucks in Chicago's Millenium Metra Train station this morning. Auto once again.

I think we need to hear you pronounce your name so we can see why they keep getting it wrong.
Wouldn't it just be easier to change your name? We wouldn't be averse to you going by "Auto".
I think you meant "Btfsplk". That would e more sensible.
Think outside the box as they say. Use a false name. I use whatever takes my fancy on the day and it is always a last minute decision. Just remember what name you chose.
Thanks for the like, Sgt. Price and Auto. I like Toki2's idea but then I wiould definitely forget what I had told them but a young man like Otto with no stress and lots of leisure time should not ! He could just spell out "O", "T", "T", "O".....but then no more fun at Starbucks and certainly not here !!!
I think he is saying"Awtoe" in a Canadian accent ..."eh?, I think pronounced A but then I have a southern drawl, ya'll.
