good thing we live in Canada with "free" healthcare eh?
Yah but the cost of the ambulance ride alone will cost that much. Just joking around but still why would anyone even attempt this? Same principle as trying to eat the giant burger at the restaurant in Steinbach or the one at Blondies????? With the news just out today that the generation of 20-35's are now in the mix for being most at risk for heart disease, I still say why??????????????


why not? If I stopped doing everything that was listed as bad for me I would not even be sitting near a computer typing this right now.

I have tried Vern's pizza. It is very tasty indeed. It ranks up there with Tony's and Gondola and Santa Lucia and...

Seriously that pizza is delicious. Be warned though Deank, I could only comfortably eat TWO slices and if really hungry, three slices.

Good news. They will be opening a Pembina Highway outlet soon. Yeah!

This reminds me of a story.

A walk-in guy orders a large pizza. The cook asks if he wants it cut into 12 or 18 slices.

The guy says 12. I couldn't eat 18.

Weird that their menu doesn't list prices.

I wanted to see what the 18" went for.
If the 15" goes for $35...what's the 18"? $50?

I like trying new pizza places...having worked at one for 5 years (off and on)...I like comparing it to what I know.

Vern's is close to where i live and we ordered from there once...pretty pricey pizza. It was good but too many toppings for my taste. I prefer making my own pizza or ordering from Paradise on Leila...now that is good pizza.

I had this two weeks ago, the 15". I am in Ft. Garry so we had to eat in. I managed to eat 4 pieces, my friend had 2. This pizza is soooooo salty, I was drinking water all night.
Good luck on your attempt to eat the whole thing!
