A clever woman figured out a way to call the police for help after being beaten by her boyfriend. She didn’t want her violent drunken boyfriend to know she was calling the police so she pretended she was ordering a pizza. This is one way to protect yourself from domestic violence.
“911, where is your emergency?”
“*** Main St.”
“Ok, what’s going on there?”
“I’d like to order a pizza for delivery.”
“Ma’am, you’ve reached 911.”
“Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?”
“Ummm… I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?”
“Yeah, do you know how long it will be?”
“Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? Do you have an emergency?”
“Yes, I do.”
“And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?” (moment of realisation)
“Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?”
“I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?”
“Can you stay on the phone with me?”
“Nope. See you soon, thanks”
The operator revealed the turn of events on Reddit and said an officer was dispatched to the address and found the woman had been beaten up. The Reddit post also says:
“The officer arrives and finds a couple, female was kind of banged up and boyfriend was drunk,”
“Officer arrests him after she explains that the boyfriend had been beating her for a while.
“I thought she was pretty clever to use that trick. Definitely one of the most memorable calls.”
In the video above you can see the moment a disgruntled Domino’s employee loses it with a customer. The lady or her son accidentally ordered their pizza wrong and didn’t get the toppings they wanted.The son, named Eric Promenchenkel, says he received a pizza in Saginaw, Michigan, with light sauce instead of the white sauce he wanted. Rather than just dealing with it, they each called this Domino’s employee to try and get a free pizza or something, but he was not sympathetic. He hung up on them twice.
Things reached a head when Eric’s girlfriend’s mom went into the store to complain face to face. But the Domino’s employee points out, “It’s not my fault you guys didn’t order your pizza right.” Having asked his supervisor’s name, the simply replies: “My supervisor’s name is ‘Go F*** Yourself.’ Get the f*** out of here, you f****** r*****.”
It sounds like something from an episode of Trailer park Boys. Some reports say the man in the Domino’s uniform was the manager of the Michigan store. A statement from Domino’s read: “We are aware of the situation and have forwarded this to the local franchise owner. The franchise owner has since fired the store manager.
Domino’s said “We apologise for how poorly this reflects on our local stores and we assure you corrective action will be taken as the franchise owner determines.”
I sympathize with the poor manager. He probably doesn’t get paid much and doesn’t appreciate shrill women shrieking about toppings! He defended himself in an interview:
“I regret the language I used, but if people could see everything that happened, especially in the phone calls, they would not be sympathetic for this woman.”
Everyone has their preferred method of reviving the clammy cheese and stale crust of last night’s pizza. Some folksare happy to microwave it and put up with soggy dough, while other prefer to grill it and risk drying the base out. Someone named Roberta has now created the definitive “How to reheat pizza” guide. It addresses both the crispiness of the dough and the moistness of the topping. All you need is a frying pan and a skillet lid. The use of water is very clever, I must say.
I have tried this guide and can confirm it works perfectly. The lazy pizza lovers will always be content to munch on last nights pizza while it’s still cold! That’s if there’s any leftover of course.
How to Reheat Pizza Properly
So now you know! But seriously, who order a pizza and doesn’t eat it all in one night? Even if you’re by yourself, you can still make the effort and wolf it all down. Well, the guide was written by a girl, so perhaps that explains it.
Would you try a pizza so spicy it could give you a heart attack? This is probably the spiciest pizza ever! The pizza which is 120 times spicier than a spicy vinadaloo curry, was wolfed down by food lover Emma Dalton in England in a record time of 3 minutes and 30 seconds. When she’s not eating ridiculously hot pizzas, Emma is an account manager.
“My nose was frozen and the whole of my lips had swollen up.” She said, adding “All around my mouth was bright pink and my eyes were streaming. I looked like a clown!”
The unbearable hotness is caused by 20 Trinidadian moruga scorpion chili peppers, which are hotter than police pepper spray and have been known to cause heart attacks and induce a drug like euphoric sensation. Emma doesn’t even like hot food, but she accepted the challenge anyways.
“It felt like my insides were being ripped out by a chainsaw.” she admitted.
Other customers taking on the “Death by Pizza” challenge at Little Italy Pizza Company in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, have reported that the spiciest pizza ever can cause the tongue to bleed. The 12 inch pizzas can induce a strange dizzy sensation. I like my pizzas hot, but I think I’ll leave this to the professional eaters who love a challenge.
Lucky Domino’s Delivery driver
How much do you tip the Domino’s delivery guy? 10%? 20%? How about twelve hundred dollars? That’s what some generous folks at a college in Indiana gave to one lucky delivery dude. The generous gesture was a demonstration by Keith Newman, the CEO of Residential Education, who wanted to teach his 3,000 students to “Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone,” – A publicity stunt but a noble gesture nonetheless.
When the Domino’s delivery guy showed up, they gave him a check for $1,268 as well as some gift cards and inspirational notes from the students.The pizza guy, named James Gilpin, says he will use this extra cash to pay for Christmas presents for his two children that are five and six years old. Lucky kids! My parents didn’t spend that much on me! It’s a heartwarming story and I’m really happy for James Gilpin and his family.
Pizzas started in Naples, Italy but have spread around the world in different forms. Some of the pizzas from around the world were invented independently from their Italian versions. I guess the joy of dough and cheese is universal. We should make a new religion based on pizza to unite the diverse peoples of earth under a new world order. Pizzas have gone from peasant staple, to American street food to fine dining and lazy takeaways. A versatile dish which has been altered to suit the unique palates of many different races and cultures. How many of these have you tried? Let us know which your favorite is in the comments section .
The Neapolitan original is a beauty of crispy thin dough, mozzarella, fresh tomato and basil. My personal favorite because of its beautiful simplicity.
Pide are like oval shaped pizzas from Turkey. They usually have cheese and Turkish beef sausage on a crispy dough base. They are very appetizing so try one out next time you pass a Turkish ocakbasi restaurant.
Okonomiyaki looks kind of like a pizza and kind of like a pancake. It’s a Japanese pancake batter filled/topped with pork, squid, cabbage and various other ingredients then finished with a kind of thick sauce that tastes like Worcestershire sauce and mayonnaise.
The Chicago Pizza Pie looks more like a quiche than a pizza to me. The tomato sauce goes on top of the cheese and other toppings and the deep pizza pie crust rises up as high as 3 inches.
The New York Deli Style Pizza was invented in the early 20th century by Italian immigrants in Brooklyn. The first pizza to be sold by the slice, it has taken the world by storm, influencing pizzas in many countries. It’s even available from Domino’s in the form of the New York Deli pizza.
Turkish pide are just like pizzas but a different shape
Pizza is one of the most popular and well known foods in the world. We think we know it so well, with it’s doughy base, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. But here are 4 things you never knew about pizza
1. Pizza can be really expensive! Luis XIII in Salerno, Italy has a pizza that costs $12,000! It takes 72 hours to make and is topped with bufala mozzarella, three types of caviar, Norwegian lobster and Cilento and it is dusted with hand picked grains of pink Australian sea-salt from the Murray River. You can’t even buy it in a restaurant, instead three chefs come to your home to make it for you. I guess the dough is made before hand so they don’t have to stay for 72 hours!
2. Pepperoni is not Italian. It was actually invented by Italian-Americans. The word “pepperoni” means “large peppers” in Italian and has nothing to do with salami.
3. Toppings are tops. More people order pizzas with toppings than simple margaritas with just cheese and tomato.
4.Pizzas were invented in Naples. Sure pizzas are Italian, but there are many variants from around the Mediterranean of dishes comprised from stretched dough with toppings. There are pide from Turkey for example, which are almost the same as pizzas. In fact there were even pizza-like dishes serves back in Ancient Greece.
The UK has gone pizza crazy! UK sales at Domino’s pizza are up to £165.7m in the quarter to September 28, from £140.9m last year. Domino’s has more than a quarter of the pizza market in the UK but some people have come up with new and weird ways to ingest their pizza.
In London’s trendy East End, a cocktail bar has invented an innovative update to the classic Bloody Mary. It is mixed with tomato and lemon juice, four slices of pepperoni, basil and mozzarella cheese, then rolled in a cocktail shaker.The crazy cocktail was invented by JJ Goodman, founder of the London Cocktail Club in Shoreditch.
‘We stayed away from the savory flavor profile and instead, using the tomato sauce for its fruity qualities; matched it with passion fruit and a hint of spice.” He says
Although, I gotta say, the pepperoni looks pretty savory to me. The cocktail is based on Domino’s Pepperoni Passion pizza.
‘The challenge of creating a cocktail to showcase the flavors of Domino’s Pepperoni pizza was totally up our street.
‘We love pushing the boundaries of cocktail creation whilst keeping things exciting and enticing for our customers.
‘To create the pepperoni infused vodka, we cook off 500g of pepperoni in a pan with no oil, wait for the oil to come naturally from the pepperoni, add the oil to a bottle of vodka then put in the freezer overnight.
‘The next morning the juices from the pepperoni will have set, while the flavor molecules will have attached themselves to the vodka.
‘Strain off the solids and ‘voila’ – pepperoni infused vodka.’
A Domino’s Pizza spokeswoman said: “We are amazed how our most popular pizza has been transformed in to a tasty drink.”
You’d have to be a really big fan of pizza to get drunk on pizza cocktails!
Domino’s have come under fire from animal rights activists after shocking footage emerged of farmers brutally torturing animals on a dairy farm in Mexico which provides Mozzarella to Domino’s pizza. Domino’s responded to criticism saying,
“No act of cruelty can ever be condoned. Ever. What we do know is that this is not an issue with our cheese supplier — it was an isolated case of sadistic acts by employees at a single dairy farm in southern New Mexico.”
Domino’s will now have to reconsider a new poorly timed commercial focused on their mozzarella, which it says is “crafted to perfection by an award-winning mozzarella maker using milk from family-owned dairy farms.”
On a lighter note here’s a pizza with extra sausage and no animal cruelty.
In other pizza news, crafty American pizza innovators have invented a new thing – The French Fry Pizza! It looks messy to me.
Domino’s posted a peace sign pizza for world peace day, but the CND sign looks more like a Nordic rune called Algiz. I wonder if Thor likes pepperoni?
What’s with these Brazilian pizzas? This Pizza place in Brazil called Pizzaria Bate Papo makes pizzas themed on traditional Brazilian meals. They don’t look gourmet at all, in fact those look like pretty greasy, dirty pizzas but they are big and will fill you up. What’s more they are certainly unusual! I mean, pizzas like this aren’t to my taste, but maybe Brazilians like them.
I think that’s chocolate milk in the center piece.
They didn’t even bother to peel those bananas and that’s a heck of a lot of onion on the far side!
Do you want chicken on your pizza? Yeah? is one enough?
OK so what’s the verdict? Are these Brazilian pizzas gross or sweet?
