If you don't mind my asking, where are you from, that doesn't have pizza? My first guess would be a Midwestern hamlet of about ~5000.
Canned tuna fish is unacceptable in polite company. If one must eat it, do so outside or in the bathroom.
Regarding fries: I usually stick to boring ketchup or the provided seasoning, but I'm accepting of people dipping them in virtually anything (gravy, sweet and sour, BBQ, soy sauce, chocolate).
Mayo is flavorless and unsavoury and only serves to cover up ingredients that are unacceptably dry. As a linguistic issue, all mayo "-salads" need to be renamed, yielding the named space to lettuce based salads.
Cheesecake fails as a dessert. It's only a little tasty, which fails to justify sending a nutrition-less brick to the bottoms of my stomach.
Clams should never be fried.
Marmite and Vegemite are brands of shoe polish. There is a running practical joke where Aussies and Brits will try to trick foreigners into eating it.
Every restaurant (regardless of theme) should be able to serve a vegan dish.
Personally, I don't care if my meal was a baby animal cooked alive in it's mother's milk while it's mother was forced to watch; it represents a flexibility too many restaurants fail at. A restaurant I can't bring people to isn't somewhere I want to eat; between Hindus, Jews/Adventists, Muslims, hippies, other kind of Hindus, and the culturally lactose intolerant: it can become complicated in a large group. For reference, many restaurants around me seem to think vegetables are unsafe unless cooked in pork grease.
Using forks where chop-sticks are appropriate and eating Italian pasta with a spoon are the equivalents of drinking out of sippy-cups: practical for children who are expected to make a mess of the dinner table.
Several people have asked what's controversial about cold pizza for breakfast. IMHO: Pizza should be served just cool enough to not burn the mouth. Likewise eating it in the morning doesn't make it breakfast anymore than a 1 pm nap makes it night. I realize this is just my prejudices, but I file it next to Bachelor Salad
in my head: something one could do, but only if they're in a sad or inconvenient place.
The thing about recursion problems is that they tend to contain other recursion problems.
