Tesco and the Remembrance Poppy pizza

11 November 2014

remembrance pizza As the nation assembles to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WW1, and stops to remember those who fought and fell for us to be here, it would seems the noble poppy has made its debut on a pizza.

Yes, that's right. A remembrance pizza has now entered the realm of 'being a thing'.

This picture, taken by someone called Ian Vaughan on Twitter, of Tesco Gatwick Extra's pizza desk on Sunday, has gone viral and been mostly applauded. Surely some people would think it borderline sacrilegious to chew, eat and crap-out a remembrance poppy?

Anyway, it's based on the store’s thin and deep crust pizzas with slices of pepperoni, olives and strips of green pepper, recreating the tribute.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "What? You mean you don't want to ask what's gone shit-shaped in our troubled empire today?" and then composed themselves and said "Colleagues in stores have been marking Remembrance Sunday in a number of ways and we hope customers see that their intentions in this case were entirely borne out of respect."

Bless them.

But otherwise: War. Huh! Good God y'all. What is it good for? Absolutely NOTHING.

    All profits go to the Royal British Legi......... Tesco. There's a certain dignity not being observed here. A fucking pizza. FFS.
