Maybe I wouldn't knock Pizza Hut so much on this site if it imported stuff like this from its supersecret Japanese labs. Pigs in a blanket on a pizza? I don't know if this "PaPa-Challe" pie is genius or sheer folly. Perhaps both. (The video of the Japanese commercial appears after the jump.)
Unique couple owns Lucas, Ohio, pizzeria: "The man at the bar was telling the tale. When he asked how long it should take the Mohawk Pizza and Tavern driver to make the delivery, he was told Stretch should be there in about half an hour. But the guy didn't quite buy it when he was told Stretch was a woman, a dwarf, who would be delivering his pizza."
Free pizza today. Don't get too excited: It's at Pizza Hut. You can grab a free slice at participating Pizza Huts from 3 to 5 p.m. as part of the Hut's efforts to market its new and improved hand-tossed pizza. The company's new Vice President of Pizza is in charge of giving out the slices. I'd be in line if it were the PaPa-Challe (above).
More free pizza. This time for the royal family. Papa John's is offering the Queen of England and the rest of the royal clan free pies for life from any U.S. or U.K. location, in honor of her visit to Louisville, Kentucky, where the chain's corporate HQ is based. QEII (Her Majesty, not the ship) will be in town for the Kentucky Derby.
Remember that dog food with janky Chinese additives that killed all those canines? So sad, you say, but it was limited to dog food, right? Think again: "The FDA is also examining imported vegetable proteins earmarked for human products like pizza, protein bars and baby formula. That investigation, still in its early stages, hasn't uncovered any contaminated ingredients, but the agency, an FDA doctor said, wanted to 'get ahead of the curve.' "
