Well, a pair of employees (now former employees) at the Domino’s Pizza in Conover, NC have upped the ante a bit. More than a bit, actually.
Two employees, “Michael” and “Kristy,” decided they were going to have a little fun at work, specifically doing some inappropriate things with the food products. They conjured up knee-slappers like, sneezing and blowing phlegm on the pies and shoving mozzarella cheese in their noses – then using these “secret ingredients” as part of a pizza.
They joked about “Booger Bread.” They guffawed as Kristy says at one point her coworker “just farted on the salami that goes on these sandwiches.” Best of all (or actually, worst of all), according to WITN-TV, “the employee making the sandwiches pulls down his pants, wipes himself with a sponge and then washes dishes.”
Hilarity ensues. Michael and Kristy think they’re just about the funniest people on earth. They’re so sure that they are funny that they decide to record themselves doing all this buffoonery. They’re so sure the rest of the country will agree they are funny that they place these videos on YouTube.
Then the government is informed of the videos. Domino’s finds out about them, too. Hilarity no longer ensues. Michael and Kristy begin to have second thoughts about their funniness. Not only are they (use your best Schwarzenegger voice here) terminated, the pair now are facing criminal charges – felony criminal charges.
But wait … that’s not all! The Domino’s franchisee has filed a civil suit against the no-longer-funny duo.
While Domino’s corporate assures everyone that the pair did not actually serve the pies in question and only did it as a prank, they are not in a happy mood about it all as you can imagine.
(Note: I tried linking the YouTube videos here, but when I clicked on it I got the following message: This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Kristy Hammonds. Hmmmmm …)
This is not a “kids-will-be-kids” kind of thing that gets shoved under the carpet, chalked up to immaturity and youth. Why would anyone in their right mind do this to start with, and then, how stupid do you have to be to decide, “Hey, let’s put this on YouTube. It’ll be the funniest thing ever!”
Makes you wonder what they’ve done in times when the camera wasn’t rolling … then again, I don’t wanna know.
