This scrap of paper caught my eye, partially trodden in to a mush outside Bank tube station. It appears to be part of a pizza menu (illegible areas marked with square brackets):
Extra Topping Price List New for 2017! [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] 12" £1.73 £2.08 £10.65 £11.70 [ ] [ ] [ ] £174 14" £2.35 £2.86 £15.00 £16.10 [ ] [ ] [ ] £238
Which eight toppings are advertised, and how were their prices arrived at?
What are the missing prices?
The toppings have inherent properties that lead to their pricing, so the answer isn't £1.73 worth of arbitrary pizza topping
I cross the road and head up Threadneedle Street as I puzzle over the fragment. Strange, it sort of looks like the price has been rounded up differently for each topping?
It's only later, back at my hotel room and packing my suitcase as neatly as possible, that the penny finally drops. Yuck!
Dough I laugh to myself. Thinking, "is that even a legal foodstuff?". I guess there's a market for everything.
