Species aside, nearly all beings have an opinion on that most critical of culinary topics:
“Is the pizza middle or the pizza crust the tastiest?”
The subject of intense debate (as prepared by Pearl’s personal chef, the Small Tree).
Because emotions run high and conversations can get quite (um) heated, it is often best to bring in a skilled mediator to settle the debate.
When the mediator (with feathers) arrives, all other beings must first agree to defer to such a discriminating palate.
Agreement reached, the mediator can begin a more thorough investigation….and deliver his binding verdict.
So this is what everyone is fussing about, Mom? Okay, I’ll get right on it.
Sure – we can do one official media shot before I get started.
Well okay, but just one more media shot ….I have a lot of work to do!
First I will perform my patented “full beak immersion test.”
Next up is a particularly delicate test called the “crunchiness-based surface scan.”
The “prey intimidation stress test” is my personal favorite.
We will finish this session with the “full flavor palate test.”
And my binding verdict is: “Crust!” (Mediator’s personal notes: after all, crunch trumps all.)
