Pizza Mysteries

The Pizzablogger appears to have gotten some food blogs caught up in a competition about the best local pizza.

First, an anonymous letter to the Pizzablogger in Baltimore. Then one to a pizza blog in DC. Now, HowChow gets pulled in by the local connection:

I represent some interests here in Howard County and we have some serious problems brewing that require your strict attention.

...

You can’t sit by and let these lightweights from DC and Baltimore not include us in their goal to settle the score. What, these guys think Howard County is only some kinda way station between the “big cities”? They got some set on them not planning to include us!

...

DC and Baltimore ain’t the only locales in the area that can whip up the Queens favorite pie. You make certain to get us included so we can be represented alongside the shoddy interests of Tommy the Tomato and Sourdough Sal.

The letters go on about "settling the score." The Pizzablogger is the best source for local pizza reviews. He is serious about his pie and amusing in his writing. So it's worth following there to see what is going on about the "Queens favorite pie."

I'm not sure if this is a ploy to boost ratings or increase readership, but I like it (even if it was Mrs. HowChow who sent the letter). Have to say I love Ledo's and that Coal Fire Pizza sounds good, but I'm sure you'll have almost as much to say about pizza in HoCo as you did about sushi.

Hi HowChow -- this is hysterical. I'm just curious to know who would set up such funny and bizarre communications. My vote for best pizza is that Italian place in Kings Contrivance (love thin crust).

Pizza Johns in Essex is by far BY FAR the best pizza in Maryland, and it's not even close.
