This Should Solve All Problems

Pizza Hut makes a name change - Top Stocks Blog - MSN Money: "Blame recession cuts. Pizza Hut is slicing the 'pizza' from its store name on its boxes and some store signs The fast food chain will now brand some stores as 'The Hut.'"

Right. Like these places are now going to be "hip hangouts". By the way, when did the word "hip" come back into vogue? I thought it went out in the 60s, except for geezers like me.

They're ashamed of selling pizza?

If they want to let people know that they're more than just pizza, why not Pizza (and other food) Hut?

Or are they afraid of the health Nazis and want to downplay their connection with any kind of tasty, greasy edibles?

I think it's going to backfire on them, though. 'Cause when I think of "The Hut," I picture Jabba.

Just went to the article and read the whole thing.

Hip? Don't they know it's hip to be square? Square as a nice square pizza box, filled with yummy pizza.

And I still picture Jabba the Hutt. If HE has any hips, they probably couldn't even find them with sonar.

This is the same idiot parent company who changed Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC.

They are hip to the jive, baby.

Will Denny's be come The Den? When these places get cute with their names my instinct is to go elsewhere.
