Luke Pie Rocker

Galactic Pizza is a local pizza joint that requires its delivery guys to wear spandex, helmets, and capes while driving around town on three-wheeled electrical eco-cars. You can seem them zooming around Uptown at all hours, their capes flapping in the wind behind them. A friend of mine happened to live directly above the place, so I've been up close and personal with the superheroes a few times. In fact, on top of Galactic Pizza is where this exchange originally happened.

Anyway, they made the news for foiling a purse snatcher:

Caped Uptown Pizza Crusader Comes To The Rescue

The victim in the video reminds me of these people a little bit, which is one of my favorite all time videos. I love the local news. But I think that Luke Pie Rocker might be the worst pun I've ever heard. [Thanks to Monkey for the link]

maybe i'm just jealous of his sateen shorts and shortie cape.

I'm jealous of the victim getting about a minute of her ass shown on tv. Nice camera-work there, Corky.

There are so many things to love about that story. Everyone involved has a great sense of humor!

The pizza is fantastic. All organic ingredients. They also offer a daily $4.20 special if you order pizza at 4:20pm.

Seriously - what self respecting person would do this for a living? (Sateen short shorts - rolflmao)

Awesome! What's wrong with dudes in capes? That'd be an awesome job. Lighten up and laugh a little, people!
