A shop, quietly selling food, once needed an idea. They brought in the ad-men, who assured them they'd bring in the punters - sign here, pay up front - and set to work.

Seconds later, they thought of the worldwide anarchy famously wrought in pizzerias from the Bronx to Bucharest. Barcelona, they declared, would be a safe zone. Cleverly stealing a global logo, they set down their manifesto.

NO! to the kitchen death squads, an END! to instant assassinations by flummoxed waiters. This would be the world's *safest* pizzeria. Finally, somewhere people can eat without being killed or run over by tanks and heavy weapons: a sanctuary for slices, if you will.

"We'll have ingredients fucking on the food" they said, moving forward. "That's sanitary, right? And we'll dress them up in 70s garb, to really explain the fact we haven't told CND about fucking up their logo in a cheap-assed lazy theft of intellectual property just to shift doughy vegetables in a cramped space in a small room in Sant Pere.

And LO! the client loved it, because he knew no better and liked the drawing and probably thought up the logo himself.

And so it was.They included the word FREE on the ads because it would trick people into thinking their 10 euro slice wasn't bought with money, but with the sweat and rhythmic pelvises and commingled juices of the kitchen staff. And everyone was happy.

Except the poor ingredients. Who, like male Black Widow spiders, got eaten just as they were enjoying the passing of time in a world without war.
