It seems EVERY purveyor of foods (for both gourmet delicacies and cheap takeout) are trying every stupid gimmick to pry open our wallets and separate us from our cash.
The latest nonsense I came home to was a stupid flyer posted on my door courtesy of Papa John’s Pizza. Apparently Papa John has come up with a new trick to try to lure us into phoning his minions at one of his many franchises and placing an order…
So this flyer boasted their newest pizza offering which consists of no less that FIVE types of sausage! Seriously?!? I did not even know there was that many types of sausage available! (Do ‘hot dogs’ count? What about ‘breakfast sausage’?) Well apparently there are at least 5 varieties of processed pork products called ‘sausage’, and Papa Johns decided to cram them onto a single pizza.
I highly doubt that you can actually pick out one type from another on this packed pizza. The whole concept is pretty stupid…I am sure the geniuses at the Papa Johns pizza plant could have come up with something a little more interesting than than a 5 sausage pizza. I mean, if they are going to pollute my home with promotions, at least have them be for something cool like a goat cheese-fig-cottage cheese pizza; or maybe a pizza with such pungent toppings that will your entire house is sure to reek. At least those would be memorable and worthy of littering my home with flyers.
I also got a kick out of how they are proudly promoting the fact that this pork-based-pizza is made with REAL pig…It makes you wonder what the hell the rest of the meat pizzas are topped with.
I guess for now I will just have to settle for flyers for stupid 5 sausage pizzas….until Domino’s decides to one-up them with their own 6 sausage pizza.
