Comment of the Day: Mangia Italiano Need to Put on Their Grown-Up Britches



Today's comment of the day comes from a post discussing Mangia Italiano's plans to sue Mangia Mobile.

Are there really that many stupid people walking around St. Louis thinking, "Gee, I was going to go to Mangia Italiano on Grand, but then I saw this Mangia Mobile truck, and I got confused, so I decided to not go to Mangia Italiano and instead eat at the truck, and now I can't remember how to get back to Mangia Italiano on Grand!"

Even if people think momentarily that Mangia Mobile is affiliated Mangia Italiano, the confusion only benefits Mangia Italiano because Mangia Mobile has great food, so if aforementioned stupid people still think the two are affiliated after eating Mangia Mobile, they will only think Mangia Italiano has good food too. But, Mangia Mobile clearly states on their truck they are not affiliated with any brick and morter business, so one visit and any confusion should be cleared up.

Sounds like Mangia Italiano needs to put on their grown-up britches and get over it. The only thing this lawsuit is going to do is make people, like myself, who used to visit both establishments, stop visiting Mangia Italiano, which I will, because no one likes a sore loser!
