Sure, Betty White will always be our first "Golden Girl" love. But coming in a close second, there was always Bea Arthur. She was droll as hell, she filled out a pantsuit like nobody's business, and when she died last year, she left $300,000 to a gay and lesbian youth group.  She ruled. You know what else is awesome? Pizza. And cool, green, snowcapped mountains.

And so, in the grand tradition of the self-explanatorily named Selleck Waterfall Sandwich, we take you now to your new happy place. It's called Bea Arthur Mountains Pizza -- and truly, it lives up to its claim of being "the definitive collection of pictures featuring Bea Arthur, mountains and pizza."

Happy Monday -- and you're welcome.
