Domino Pizza employees put extra "protein" on the menu

15 April 2009

To quote Douglas Adams:

Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws.

Adams would have adored Twitter. Not only has it proved its worth in breaking major news stories before media organisations have time to think, but bad news can now traverse the globe in nano-seconds.

So on Monday, when two employees at a franchise of Dominos Pizza decided to film their hilarious food preparation etiquette and then post to YouTube, it took no time at all for the link to be re-tweeted around the world. By yesterday, they were already sacked.

And it may have been a franchise in Hicksville, North Carolina, but the world will just see the Dominos logo and question how much extra "protein" their food might have. Dominos PR people, start earning your crust:

    I only ever order pizza while I m actually stood in the store, and my local Dominos is an open space where you can see the pizza being prepared, so not all that bad, but this is truely minging, Mike..

    Urgh, Dominos pizzas are bad enough without the extras.
  • Tom
    i wondered why they taste so good

    You know they are soooo stupid. Is there a chance that this is some sort of anti-marketing campaign, perhaps put out by a domino's competitor!?

    Domi-NOSE ... ...

    Come on, if you eat in fast food you must know that this is going to happen sooner or later. From the title of the article including the term "protein" I thought it was going to be a lot worse.

    Nasty! But what do you expect from those hicks. Seriously, she can barely read the title of a book that she says she is reading. "Tori's ....No... Stori Telling.... yup thats it" Dumbass Yanks!

    Looks fake to me.

    Lol reminds me of the Subways lettuce incident. Anyone catch that on BBC news? Its much funnier, yet disguisting at the same time.

    I was hoping for a sticky mess pizza with the ""protein"". Instead I saw something that's pretty standard at fastfood places.
    And THIS is why I cook my own food.
