Picture it. You just finished the work week from hell. It is a Friday night and all you want is a large pie with extra pepperoni delivered ASAP, like yesterday.

Who you gonna call?

Well Charles Walters, the head of Williamsburg Pizza, has the solution. Pizza delivered by a remote-controlled drone.

The New York Post highlighted the soaring cheese-filled story last week, and intrepid photog Paul Martinka (a friend of Not for Nuthin’ for years) was there to capture the Wright Brothers’ moment.

Notwithstanding the first attempt that sort of fell flat, the second attempt soared into the night sky and delivered a pipping hot pie to customer Phyllis Brody, who delighted in the delivery flight commenting “Getting delivery like this is something I never expected, it’s really a lot of fun.”

Fun? Heck — it is pizza-tastic — too good to be true.

Just think of the boon to pizza lovers everywhere. Hungry, tired, sauce-craving epicures, standing in line with their eyes on the prize in the sky and enjoying the benefits of drop-down drone delivery:

• Like Manna from heaven your pie will descend from the sky above quicker than you can say, “Extra cheese and extra crispy.”

• You no longer will hear, “At least 45 minutes,” to your query, “How long?”

• It will arrive at your roof, backyard, window, as hot as straight out of the oven.

• You don’t have to go downstairs and let the delivery guy in.

And the number one advantage:

• You no longer have to frantically search in the couch cushions for the loose change to come up with the tip.

Not only a savvy businessman, but Walter is also a prognosticator, predicting that in the future there will be a fleet of at least 25 drones to deliver pizza.

We wish.

Or as soon as the Federal Administration clarifies its rules on employing the small craft, that is.

Not for Nuthin™, but I for one can’t wait to call my local pizzeria, order up a large pie with olives and pepperoni, garlic-knots, and a calzone and just sit back and wait for it to drop right into my lap — so to speak. Now that’s what I call high in the pizza pie in the sky hopes for sure.
