Dancing Pizza Goes Missing!


This popular piece of pizza, known by locals in Portales, New Mexico as Pepe, has gone missing. The Papa Murphy's pizza mascot was allegedly stolen from a local gymnasium during a basketball game, before getting a chance to break out some of his sweet signature dance moves. Papa Murphy's is holding out hope that the local hooligans that stole Pepe will return him, unharmed for a $200 cash reward—no questions asked. They just want their lovable plush pizza back.

I liked AHT editor Robyn Lee's reaction when she saw Pepe: "Pepe looks like he swallowed Homer Simpson." Hehe. Here's the whole scoop on the Pepe saga.
