Cosmic Stan’s

“Pizza anyone?” The crowd answered with an enthusiastic roar, and I ducked a tankard as it flew past my ear.

My name is Collen, and I schlep pies for Cosmic Stan’s Any Time Any Place Pizza and Catering. (Here, have a menu.)

We mean what it says. With Cosmic Stan’s, you’re guaranteed fresh, hot pizzas delivered anywhere in space-time, for any size party. Causation and Entropy are optional; if we don’t deliver half an hour before you place the order, your pizza is free.

This party is a big one. Open field, hundreds of big dudes (hairy biker types) already partying, busty waitresses deftly dodging ass-pinches and delivering frothy mugs for the boys.

The invoice calls for six thousand pies. (I’ll be duplicated pretty heavily to cover that many.)

Some event called “Ragnarok.” There are special order notes: “Ask for Wotan,” “Beware of Dog,” and “Leave early.”

  1. That sounds like a good service – I’ll take a menu, thanks. 🙂 I hope he pays attention to the special notes. That’s one party he really doesn’t want to hang around for! 🙂

  2. I might just gatecrash that party. Ragnarok’s always appealed to me. Wotan sounds like a really cool guy. Can I order six pizzas for twelve o’ clock sharp? (It’s 11.35 a.m. here in the UK right now.) 🙂

  3. I like that the pizza is delivered before it is ordered otherwise it is free…Must be ESP! 6K is a lot of pizza! 🙂 Well done Dave! Thanks for participating and see you next week? Be well… ^..^

  4. I love this line! “Causation and Entropy is optional; if we don’t deliver half an hour before you place the order, your pizza is free.” Very entertaining story – I really enjoyed reading it.

    1. You know, I saw the prompt photo last night. When I woke up (at 2AM), the story was already pretty much complete. So I knocked it out, and went back to bed 😛

  5. Great story, Dave. I love the name of the place. Do they by any chance own a Tardis? It sounds like Dr. Who’s started a pizza restaurant. Well done. 😀 — Suzanne
