Please humor me...

...and explain why this concept is in any way appetizing. I'm referring specifically to Dominos' relatively new Pasta Bread Bowls. Would you eat a potato full of mashed potatoes? An omelet stuffed with scrambled eggs? A hollowed-out tomato filled with ketchup?

Okay, scratch that last one. I would actually eat that.

However, I really can't understand why anyone would consciously choose to eat a bread bowl filled with another substance that is pretty much just like bread only tubular and slimy. I've also discovered that the difference in opinion is completely gender-based. Sample conversation:

Me: blah blah blah...pasta-filled bread bowl.
Girl: Sick. I would rather an entire stack of wrapped Kraft Singles.
Me: I know, right? I would rather eat a hollowed-out tomato filled with ketchup. (Proceeds to do just that.)

Compare that reaction with this other common response.

Me: blah blah blah...pasta-filled bread bowl.
Guy: (To busy eating a Pasta Bread Bowl to provide a verbal response.)

This is, of course, an informal survey, but I'm pretty sure I'm on to something. Please feel free to theorize/disagree/dig in.

I saw that Domino's commercial and thought it looked repulsive as well as redundant.

Yeah, dude, I'll eat my fair share of incredibly unhealthy food but even I'm stearing clear of that.
