Pizza Theology

I was reading comics this morning over breakfast, and Count Your Sheep had another gem.

One of my father's coworkers had a favorite "saying":
Pizza is a proof we existed in heaven before we were born. Why do I say this? Because everyone instinctively knows the taste of perfect pizza. We could just have finished a dinner of the best pizza we have ever eaten -- even the best pizza in all of Italy -- and we would still lean back and say, "That was amazing, but it's still missing a little something..."
The same coworker would also say, "Chocolate is one proof of a kind and benevolent God."

In a somewhat reverent manner regarding pizza and chocolate, even most athiests and agnostics I talk with seem to find it disrespectful to argue with either asserion, whether or not they agree.
