I can't believe that people are missing the most hilarious part of this exchange.
Lachean is claiming Thor's proposal wouldn't work because you can't get a 1/2 ounce of mozzarella for $0.20. So he cites a price that would lead to savings of about $0.44 per pizza (double the 20 cents thor claims would be saved by using 1/2 ounce less) if Papa Johns followed thor's plan. This means Lachean should be saying say "Thor, your plan is brilliant. They'd actually pull off those savings using only a 1/4 ounce less per pizza because Mozzarella is so expensive!"
Thor cites a price which would mean his proposal of 1/2 ounce less cheese per pizza would only save the company about $0.08 per pizza. With that price, Thor should be saying "You're right, Lachean. The proposal wouldn't work because Mozzarella is too cheap. They'd have to use at least an ounce less to make up the difference."
Because thor's right about the price of mozzarella, Lachean's right about not enough savings from using 1/2 less cheese. If Lachean was right about the price of cheese, Thor would have been right about the savings (he'd have low-balled them, actually).
Therefore you both lose and I win

I wonder how much we would save on health care if people didn't order takeout.
My thought is that hourly employees at Papa John's Pizza would be healthier since they would have basic health care thereby reducing costs at a typical papa John's. Also, many people would have more money to spend (e.g. the Tea Party family) since they would have gotten more timely medical care rather than ER care. Then there could be more cheese on the pizza for the same profit; oh poo, that would be unhealthy. (BTW, salaried Papa John's employees get great medical benefits etc.)
I have to clarify the reduced costs at Papa John's if employees have Obama Care. If your employees have health care they show up on time more often and more prepared for work and they don't have to be replaced as often.
