One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now here’s Howard Gernette with a word from Lincoln Carpet. The high-priced look isn’t priced high at Lincoln!

I wonder if this is the same Lincoln Carpet we had in Chicago?

Right. Assuming a 1/2″ crust on all the pizzas, the 18-inch pizza would have 27 square inches of crust, the 2 12″ pizzas together would have 36 square inches.

Is that true? I am amazed. Of course as a person who likes the crust, certainly the two smaller pizza would have more crust, wouldn’t they? I’m sure there’s a math-y way to figure that out but I’m going to let that be a mystery of life. I majored in English.

Ah ha! So the 2 12″ pizzas are a better deal for me. Now exactly when or where I’ll be buying 2 pizzas remains a mystery, but at least I’ll know why I’m buying them. š

Ha! Now to price compare to find the better deal. The more you know …

Compute in dollars per square inch? I think you’d come out better with the 18″, but I don’t know a whole lot of places that serve pizzas that big.

If you like crust, then you will get more of that with the two 12″ pizzas.

I did the math and the 2 12’s have about 12 square inches more of crust (the calculations are in the comments somewhere).
