Jet's Pizza Lets You Have Your Cake With Just Deserts


Ever had that annoying co-worker or that pompous boss of yours walk into the lunch room and ask you for a slice of your pizza without the smallest hint of thanks or appreciation? You know you have and while you'd love to stand up and punch the crap out of these insensitive losers, you'd also like to keep your job. Thanks to Jet's Bold Fold Pizza, now you can have your cake (pizza) and eat it too. And leave the lunch room knowing these idiots will get their just deserts.

By the way, just what the hell does "you can't have your cake and eat it too" really mean? If you have a cake, of course you're going to eat it. And what the fuck is up with "just deserts" taking on the meaning of getting what one deserves? Just who makes up these wacky phrases?

Isn't the expression "just desserts"? Why would anyone want one, much less several, deserts?

useful origin of the "can't have your cake and eat it too"

The word "desert," besides referring to the Sahara, also means "worthiness or entitlement to reward/punishment." So someone getting their "just deserts" is getting a just (as in justified) outcome.

Kind of an archaic term, but it definitely not "desserts."
