Pizza Delivery Guy Turns Job Into Poetry on Tumblr

Trending Now

Steve Richardson is the lead singer of a band, a college graduate, and a pizza delivery guy. And it is the latter that is gaining him Internet fame.

The Provo, Utah, native started a Tumblr page on March 12 called "every pizza I've ever delivered." His first post was a photo of a delivery van filled to the brim with pizza delivery cases.

"Delivering happiness 145 pizzas at a time," he wrote as the caption.

Since then, Richardson rarely uploads photos to the blog. Instead, he writes short poems that contain rather mundane observations about his experiences delivering pizzas.

But of course, it is not every day that you read a poem about pizza box folding.

"We used to have box-folding races when I was still new. About four or five months into the job my fold-speed peaked," Richardson wrote. "We don't race anymore. My skills have stagnated since those early months."

The site, everypizza.tumblr.com, also contains poetry about the people that Richardson delivers to.

Posted alongside a sketch of a fancy looking home, that poem is one of Richardson's most liked and reblogged on the site.

The recent college graduate joked that now that he is done with school, he can focus full-time on the blog. In addition to "delivering happiness," Richardson also fronts a band called Lake Island. Obviously, Pizza Underground was already taken.
