Dirty British duo sentenced for outrageous sex acts inside Domino's pizza in England

A British couple got off easy after pleading guilty to outraging public decency.
Daniella Hirst, 29, and Craig Smith, 31, were busted earlier this year after surveillance video caught them having sex inside a Domino’s pizza restaurant in Scarborough, England.
Both were handed 12-month community order sentences this week, according to the BBC.
The dirty duo must also obey a curfew between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. until March of next year.
For his part in the sick sex crime, Smith was ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work.
Hirst and Smith boasted about having sex in public places after video of the incident went viral.
In an interview with the U.K. Sun, Hirst and Smith said they “got a little carried away.”
The 18-minute recording saw Hirst perform oral sex on Smith as the couple waited for their order.
They proceeded to have intercourse after that while leaning against the counter.
According to the report, a judge overseeing the case told the pair they were “very close to going to prison.”

It's not delivery — it's pizza in space! Astronauts hold stellar pizza party at International Space Station

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The first-ever pizza party in space is getting sky-high reviews.
Astronauts at the International Space Station posted pictures over the weekend of their small, made-from-scratch pizza pies. The fixings flew up last month on a commercial supply ship, and the crew wasted little time pulling out the flatbread, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni and olives.
After making their own individual-size pizzas, the six astronauts tossed and twirled them like floating Frisbees, before devouring them. They give the pies “12 thumbs up!”
Commander Randy Bresnik calls the pizzas “flying saucers of the edible kind.”
NASA’s space station manager took pity on Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli’s pizza craving and, in mid-November, shipped up all the ingredients on an Orbital ATK capsule. Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza delicious.
It’s not delivery

DETROIT — A Detroit-area lawyer says threats on social media have prompted him to drop lawsuits challenging the halal preparation of Little Caesars pizza.
Majed Moughni says the threats identified his family and his 11-year-old daughter’s school. He says they also contained profanity and a racial slur.
Moughni tells the Detroit Free Press that he had to “switch gears,” drop the lawsuits and protect his family. He says he filed complaints with police in Dearborn, just outside Detroit.

Moughni represented Little Caesars customers who said their pizza had regular pork pepperoni at some locations, rather than a halal substitute. Muslims typically don’t eat pork. Halal food is prepared according to Islamic guidelines.
The pizza chain denied the allegations.

Papa John's founder out as CEO weeks after NFL comments

By Joseph Pisani, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Papa John’s founder John Schnatter will step down as CEO next month, about two months after he publicly criticized the NFL leadership over national anthem protests by football players — comments for which the company later apologized.
Schnatter will be replaced as chief executive by chief operating officer Steve Ritchie on Jan. 1, the company announced Thursday. Schnatter, who appears in the chain’s commercials and on its pizza boxes, and is the company’s biggest shareholder, remains chairman of the board.
Earlier this year, Schnatter blamed slowing sales growth at Papa John’s — an NFL sponsor and advertiser — on the outcry surrounding players kneeling during the national anthem. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had kneeled during the national anthem to protest what he said was police mistreatment of black men, and other players started kneeling as well.
“The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country,” Schnatter said during a conference call about the company’s earnings on Nov. 1.
Papa John’s apologized two weeks later, after white supremacists praised Schnatter’s comments. The Louisville, Ky.-based company distanced itself from the group, saying that it did not want them to buy their pizza.
Ritchie declined to say Thursday if the NFL comments played a role in Schnatter stepping down, only saying that it’s “the right time to make this change.”
Shares of Papa John’s are down about 13% since the day before the NFL comments were made, reducing the value of Schnatter’s stake in the company by nearly US$84 million. Schnatter owns nearly 9.5 million shares of Papa John’s International Inc., and his total stake was valued at more than $560 million on Thursday, according to FactSet. The company’s stock is down 30% since the beginning of the year.
Schnatter, 56, founded Papa John’s more than three decades ago, when he turned a broom closet at his father’s bar into a pizza spot. And it has since grown to more than 5,000 locations. Schnatter has also become the face of the company, showing up in TV ads with former football player Peyton Manning.
The company hasn’t decided if Schnatter will still be its spokesman, Ritchie said, adding that a decision will be made early next year.
The Papa John’s leadership change comes as the pizza chains that once dominated the fast-food delivery business face tougher competition from hamburger and fried-chicken chains that are expanding their delivery business. McDonald’s Corp., for example, expects to increase delivery from 5,000 of its nearly 14,000 U.S. locations by the end of the year.
Ritchie said his focus as CEO will be making it easier for customers to order a Papa John’s pizza from anywhere. That’s a strategy that has worked for Domino’s, which takes orders from tweets, text messages and voice-activated devices, such as Amazon’s Echo. Papa John’s customers can order through Facebook and Apple TV, but Ritchie said he wants the chain to be everywhere customers are.
“The world is evolving and changing,” he said.
Ritchie, 43, began working at a Papa John’s restaurant 21 years ago, making pizzas and answering phones, the company said. He became a franchise owner in 2006 and owns nine locations. He was named chief operating officer three years ago. Ritchie said plans for him to succeed Schnatter were made after that.

'Papa John' sues Papa John’s, accuses company of 'heavy-handed' treatment
Associated Press

DOVER, Del. — The founder of the Papa John’s pizza chain filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking access to the company’s books and records following his resignation as chairman earlier this month amid reports that he used a racial slur during a media training session.
In a complaint filed in Delaware’s Court of Chancery, John Schnatter accused Papa John’s International Inc. of treating him in an “unexplained and heavy-handed way” after Forbes published a July 11 article that he says falsely accused him.
Instead of standing behind him and trying to explain what actually happened, the company followed “its usual, and flawed, manner of dealing with false and mistaken reporting,” Schnatter claimed.
Schnatter compared the board’s request that he step down as chairman to its prompting of his resignation as CEO last year amid controversy over remarks he made regarding National Football League players protesting during the national anthem.
In the complaint, Schnatter says company directors either acted in a hasty and uninformed manner, thus breaching their duty of care to the corporation, or had secretly planned a “coup” in advance to oust him.
“Either way, as a director of the company, Mr. Schnatter is entitled to determine whether his fellow directors have been grossly negligent or are acting in bad faith, or both,” the complaint reads.
Schnatter filed the lawsuit after the company rebuffed his July 18 request for a variety of documents, saying he was seeking to further his own self-interests, rather than the company’s best interests.
The documents Schnatter seeks include internal communications by directors, officers and attorneys relating to him from Oct. 31 last year through July 15, when a special committee was formed to address the Forbes article. Schnatter is also seeking documents relating to any allegations of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct by any board member or officer.
After reporting about the racial slur, Forbes published another story last week describing a corporate culture at Papa John’s that subjected women to sexist behaviour. A representative for Schnatter has said the story contains “numerous inaccuracies and misrepresentations.”
In a prepared statement, the company accused Schnatter of filing “a needless and wasteful lawsuit in an attempt to distract from his own words and actions” and said it would not be distracted from “numerous misstatements” he has made.
“We are providing Mr. Schnatter all of the materials he is entitled to as a director,” the statement added.
Terry Fahn, a spokesman for Schnatter, issued a statement saying the company is using him as a scapegoat to cover up its own shortcomings and failures, and that it has a history of “sticking its head in the sand when dealing with comments that have been misconstrued and falsely reported.”
The court filing comes as the company tries to distance itself from Schnatter, who says he has been falsely accused and that his resignation was a mistake. The company, which is based in Louisville, Kentucky, but incorporated in Delaware, has adopted a “poison-pill” shareholder rights plan to try to prevent Schnatter from amassing a controlling stake.
Schnatter and his affiliates currently own more than 30 per cent of the shares but would trigger the poison-pill plan if they amass 31 per cent or more, the company said. Such a plan allows other shareholders to buy additional stock at a discounted price if one shareholder amasses shares above a certain threshold, thus diluting the acquirer’s shares.
Schnatter, who founded the company in 1984, resigned as CEO late last year after blaming disappointing pizza sales on the NFL’s handling of the player protests during the national anthem.
Following the latest controversy, the company said it would start scrubbing Schnatter’s image from its marketing materials and is evaluating all ties with him.
Schnatter says he was notified less than three hours after the board voted to form the special committee that the company planned to terminate a “founder’s agreement” that governs his public appearances. Schnatter claims it would have been impossible for committee members to properly inform themselves before making such a decision.
Papa John’s shares closed down 23 cents Thursday at $44.45 after trading as low as $43.95, just two cents above a 52-week low of $43.93 and well off a 52-week high of $81.09.

CHICAGO — The city that boasts it gave the world deep-dish pizza will soon be home to a pizza museum.
The U.S. Pizza Museum is expected to open its doors in Chicago’s South Loop neighbourhood on Friday. The Chicago Tribune reports the museum will be open through October, and possibly longer.
The museum was created in 2015 but has mostly existed online and in pop-up exhibits.
Museum founder Kendall Bruns says the new space will be 3,000 square feet and allow him to tell the full story of pizza and its U.S. makers.
Among the items in the collection are pizza-themed clothing, menus, records and toys. Admission is free but timed tickets are required .
The museum isn’t a restaurant, but pizza will be available at nearby pizzerias and food trucks.

Michigan pizzeria makes 362 km delivery to Indiana for cancer patient

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — An employee at Michigan pizza shop that usually doesn’t deliver made a big exception for a cancer patient and his wife hundreds of miles away in Indiana.
Julie and Rich Morgan grew fond of Steve’s Pizza when they lived in Battle Creek, Mich., more than two decades ago. They’d planned a trip to the restaurant for Julie Morgan’s birthday in September, but Rich Morgan ended up in the hospital in Indianapolis and later in hospice care.
Julie Morgan’s father called Steve’s Pizza this month and spoke with 18-year-old Dalton Shaffer, who offered to make the 225-mile (362-kilometre) trip to make the delivery.
Shaffer tells the Battle Creek Enquirer he “just wanted to make them happy.” MLive.com reports the delivery drew attention after Julie Morgan posted on Facebook about it.

Eat your heart out: The Museum of Pizza is in NYC

November 8, 2018 3:55 PM EST
NEW YORK — There is now a museum for pizza lovers everywhere that’s popped-up in arguably America’s pizza capital, New York City. The Museum of Pizza is dedicated to all things cheese and sauce, but there’s more to it than meets the tongue. “It’s often that the simplest ideas are the best. And we wanted to use pizza’s ubiquitous appeal to get people through the door and looking at art and hearing about history in a different format,” said Alexandra Serio, Chief Content Officer at Nameless Network, the group that baked the Museum of Pizza idea. “Our approach to this Museum of Pizza is a fine art approach, so we went out to multiple artists contemporary in many mediums, and asked them for their interpretation of pizza,” said Serio. “And what we got back is–it ranges the gambit, let’s just say that. That’s an understatement.” Located on the street level of Brooklyn’s William Vale hotel, the museum is an expansive, one-floor space that houses a wide variety of art, from giant photographs to sculptures to large installations that engulf visitors. And the pop-up museum, also known as “MoPi,” has already drawn a lot of interest–more than 6,000 people came through the doors when they opened this month.

Another instantly recognizable attribute of the space is the bright colours that are weaved throughout the exhibits–perfect for taking social media-ready pictures. “Honestly, I thought it would be like more of a museum like at the beginning, with the pizza boxes and it kinda tells you when it was developed and stuff like that,” said Nene Raye, visiting from New Jersey. “Then I was kinda hoping they had something artsy in it because I love taking pictures. So this is a mashup of everything–so you get a little bit of education and then some fun, which I love.” Serio said selfie-friendly exhibits are becoming a priority for museums as they try to get younger legs to walk through their doors. “It’s a kind of paradigm shift with museums,” she said. “You’ll see, I think in the next few years because of museums like the Museum of Ice Cream, and multiple pop-ups of this ilk, museums kind of courting a younger audience and seeing how they can make their exhibitions more tactile, touch and photography friendly.”

Instagram-friendly ’pop-up experiences’ reach new heights with Toronto’s ‘Happy Place’
Lydia Melendez, a self-described “pizza aficionado,” bought her tickets in April. For her, this experience was worth the wait. “I thought it was going to be kinda boring, like I’m going to walk in and there’s just going to be a book about pizza and how to make it. But this is definitely one for the books.” While pizza may be the hook that draws those interested to the museum, the focus of MoPi is to expose visitors to the fine art world–even if the education is fed one slice at a time. “The Museum of Pizza’s target demographic isn’t necessarily the same type of people that are making a quarterly trips to the MoMA or the Frick collection or the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) “, said Serio. “We’re really putting fine art in a place that’s easily accessible for a wide range of people.” The pop-up museum, which costs $35 for adults but is free for kids under 5 and seniors, closes Nov. 18.

Toronto cops hunt trio in alleged pizza delivery fraud

Toronto Police are appealing to the public to help them identify three men believed to be involved a series of pizza delivery fraud thefts across the city.
Since mid-July, Toronto Police, as well as neighbouring police services in the Greater Toronto Area, say they have been receiving reports of people posing as pizza delivery drivers who use fraudulent debit machines and compromise debit cards.
A police spokeswoman says there are similar patterns in each case, which is being handled by the force’s Financial Crimes Unit.
Allyson Douglas-Cook says in every case, pizza orders that were placed for delivery are allegedly intercepted by a group of at least three male suspects pretending to be the pizza’s recipients.
“They would find out the location of the place the pizza drivers were delivering to,” says Douglas-Cook. “Sometimes that would involve following the pizza driver from the store.”
Douglas-Cook says the suspects paid for the pizza and then delivered it to its intended customers.
But when the victims went to pay using their debit cards, Douglas-Cook says they were presented with a fraudulent machine that would either stop working or get left in the pizza delivery car, prompting one of the suspects to take the machine — along with victims’ debit cards — back to their car, compromising their cards.
Once out of view, police say one of the suspects switched the debit card with a similar looking, non-active card that they would hand back to the victims.
Police say the suspect would then leave the home, find a nearby ATM and withdraw cash.
In one case on July 13, police say they were called after a pizza delivery man left.
They say the victims became suspicious when their delivery man showed up without the pizza store’s typical insulated delivery bag.
While delivering the pizza, the suspect allegedly told them he forgot the debit machine in the car, and took the victims’ card back to his vehicle to perform the transaction.
After the suspect left, police say the victims called the pizza company to report what they felt was “strange behaviour,” where they were informed the real delivery person never made it to their front door.
Images of the men have been released.
Police say they will not be releasing the name of the pizza company at this time.

Real ham on pizza leaves Aussie vegan feeling 'betrayed'

A vegan felt a cascade of emotions after ham was accidentally put on his Dominos pizza.REUTERS
This Domino’s Pizza left a sour taste for one Aussie vegan.
Childcare worker Patrick Hukins ordered a vegan pie from a Sydney outlet — but horrors! — that meatless pie contained ham.
“I had a horrible sinking feeling I had eaten an animal. Not eating animals has become a core part of my belief system,” Hukins told Daily Mail Australia. “I felt shame and pain for the animal.”
And the vegan of four years said he became ill.
Patrick Hukins was a very unhappy vegan. FACEBOOK
“And I felt guilty for having unknowingly consumed a product that goes against my endeavours to reduce my environmental footprint as well as harm to other animals … I was shocked.”
Before the ham horror, he said he was looking forward to taking the chain’s four new plant-based pizza options for a test drive.
One of the options was Hawaiian, which was supposed to be made of faux ham.
But the vegan was skittish and a Domino’s employee reassured him the topping wasn’t meat.
