Pizza is ex­tra cheesy

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

IF you have ever or­dered pizza the chances are you have in­dulged in an ex­tra por­tion of your favourite top­ping.

But while ex­tra cheese, pineap­ple, pep­per­oni or even salami is not un­usual, have you ever asked for an added piece of hu­mour?

That is ex­actly the re­quest one lo­cal cus­tomer made - and staff obliged.

“Big shout-out to Suc­cess Domino’s this arvo,” the cus­tomer posted on Face­book group Cock­burn Chat af­ter open­ing the lid on his pur­chase.

“(I) or­dered a cou­ple (of) piz­zas on­line ... and wrote in the in­struc­tions for a funny joke to be writ­ten in the lid of the boxes. “They came through big time...” So what were the two jokes? What do you call a man with no shins? The an­swer: Tony (Toe-knee). What do you call a guy with a pole in his leg? The se­cond an­swer: Rod­ney (Rod-knee). The cus­tomer was clearly sat­is­fied, post­ing, “Well played you savages”, a com­ment that in this in­stance is ac­tu­ally a com­pli­ment.

Domino’s spokes­woman Tracy Llewe­lyn said th­ese types of re­quests were not un­usual.

“While it’s not al­ways pos­si­ble to ac­com­mo­date ev­ery re­quest, when we can bring joy to so­cial food oc­ca­sions we do,” she said.
