Jumping The Shark ! (Canotto Pizza & Ramen Jiro)

Okay, We love pizza. Yes, We love ramen. And yes, We love bigger pizza and bigger ramen. But does it actually mean that bigger is better ? Is MUCH bigger MUCH better ? When is "too much" really too much ? What's hiding behind these over-the-top trends ? Let's discuss about that using two recent food examples : Canotto Pizza, which is an extreme Neapolitan Variation and Extra Large Ramen Bowls from Ramen Jiro. 
*Jumping the shark is an idiom used to describe a moment when something that was once widely popular, but has since grown less popular, makes a misguided attempt at generating publicity that instead only serves to highlight its irrelevance. I am not bragging with this reference. FYI : I didn't know about that expression, Josh did.
