Maybe Don’t Call 911 over This Kind of Food Problem — Pizza Emergency

Calling 911 is a serious matter. It's an emergency line, reserved — exclusively — for situations that require immediate medical, fire, or law enforcement assistance. We learn this simple fact when we're children, and file it away in the backs of our minds with the hope that we'll never be put into a situation where we have to dial those three numbers.

Can You Get Good Pizza in San Francisco? — The 2016 Oscars

Pixar's Inside Out, nominated for Best Animated Feature Film, is a heart-warming tearjerker about the inner workings of the mind of 11-year-old Riley as she experiences one of life's major upsets: moving. Understandably, her emotions (Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and Sadness played by Amy Poehler, Louis Black, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, and Phyllis Smith, respectively) run amok, and despite her best attempt to put on a brave face, not even pizza can make her new home in San Francisco feel, well, like home. As Anger puts it, "Congratulations, San Francisco — you've ruined pizza!"
