  1. Yay! Pineapple absolutely belongs on pizza, in fact aside from cheese it should be the only topping. Missed you, Foolish Child <3

  2. Hurray – welcome back!!! Also, the teens I work with literally took a break from talking about their grief to have this exact very important conversation. They finally decided that their group is an inclusive space, welcoming of all pizza toppings!

  3. Yay! I’m so excited you’re back! Also excited to strongly support and defend pineapple as the best topping

  4. We never have this argument at my house because none of the pizza places we order from even OFFER pineapple on your pizza and I’m realizing I need to find one that does

  5. So I never dreamed of finding my own community, people I could just be myself around because they would really get me and they’d even share my preferences, and I wouldn’t have to explain or defend or endure weird looks or bigotry or teasing or anything, but wow, here y’all are! I refer, of course, to my love of pineapple on pizza.

  6. I’ve never actually met anyone who doesn’t like pineapple on pizza. Perhaps they are myth perpetuated by capitalism, just like heterosexuality?

  7. Thank for you this very cute comic! Welcome back Dickens! Also shoutout to all my pineapple pizza peeps.

  8. …I’m nervous to admit I’ve never tried it. What if people judge my lack of experience?

    Also yayyy welcome back Dickens!!!

  9. Welcome baaaaack! Yay!

    Also very here for pineapple on pizza, a cause of marital stress in my relationship with a staunch pineapple-is-not-a-savory-food partner.
