 “Hungry for more than just pizza?”

 

Sex sells, it’s the old cliché, but its true.

Some smart entrepreneurial moves in western Canada sees every box of pizza coming with a free erotic picture “that would make Larry Flynt blush”.

Porno Pizza in Winnipeg has been doing brisk business since opening last week, titillating the hungry with racy pictures at the bottom of every pizza box.

“They range from softly-lit, lube-on-the-lens pictures like in Playboy, to raunchy, hardcore photos,” owner Corey Wildeman said.

“The image is revealed as you eat the pizza.”

The “ultra erotic” marketing gimmick has attracted “scowls” from some observers, “hooting and hollering” from others and at least one “drive-by flashing” of breasts, he said.

“We live in a society that is so steeped in porn that people have it delivered to the dinner table,” Roz Prober of child advocacy group Beyond Borders lamented in the Winnipeg Free Press.

Indeed, Mr Wildeman, 30, is already in talks with potential partners to open franchises across Canada after selling hundreds of pizzas in one week.

“You’ll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator,” he explained.

“Everyone knows – sex sells.”

Wildeman said he came up with the idea for the naughty pizzeria while talking with friends about classic porn flicks in which “pizza delivery guys meet lonely ladies and deliver more than just pizza”.

Unexpectedly, more than 75 per cent of his customers turned out to be women.

Pizza Porn, coming to a pizza box near you. Yum, yum!

Update: I’ve just discovered the web site of this fantastic concept!

Pizzaporno.ca

Combos include: ‘Missionary Position’ (sounds boring), ‘Mr. Big’ (obviously named after me), and ‘Climax’, which includes every topping.

If your in Canada you have to try it and tell me all about it!

I would if I could!

It’s alive! Species of mammal once thought extinct is alive and well.

Oh, yes indeed. How exciting!

It’s not yet official, but a research team visiting the deep jungles of Papua New Guinea believe that an echidna named after British naturalist Sir David Attenborough, thought to no longer exist, is actually still alive, reports the BBC:

The month-long expedition by scientists from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) involved travelling to parts of the mountain range, covered by thick jungle, which had remained unexplored for more than 45 years.

Jonathan Baillie, ZSL’s Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (Edge) programme manager, said: “We hope that Sir David Attenborough will be delighted to hear that his namesake species is still surviving in the wilds of the Papaun jungle.”

The creature had not been recorded since a Dutch botanist collected the only known specimen in the cloud forest of the Cyclops Mountains in 1961.

As a result, it was widely assumed that the shoe box-sized species (Zaglossus attenboroughi) was extinct.

But while the Edge team were in the area, they spoke to local tribespeople who said that they had seen the creature as recently as 2005.

The scientists also discovered “nose pokes”, holes in the ground made by the echidnas as they stuck their long noses into soil to feed.

Yuck! Live rats a culinary delight after plague in China.

Yummy rat!

A few days back I wrote about the estimated 2 billion rats that have been plaguing a rural are of China after flooding of the giant Dongting Lake (includes Reuters video).

The unbelievable scene of rats pilled on top of each other and havoc local farmers had many crops ruined.

Well, now it turns out, in the true spirit of China’s new found capitalism that some people have been cashing in on the misfortune.

Live rats are being captured by locals, and trucked into the counties south, where fresh rat seems to be a culinary delight for thousands of wealthy restaurant goers.

Yes, with the new found wealth of many Chinese, it is customary to eat “exotic things” as a way of showing off your riches. And the consumption of rat is the latest in an extravagant eating trend, which also sees the consumption of other interesting creatures such as snakes and owls.

News Reports:

“Recently there have been a lot of rats … Guangzhou people are rich and like to eat exotic things, so business is very good,” the China News Service quoted a vendor as saying.

Some vendors had asked people from a village in Hunan province, near Dongting Lake, to sell them live rats, the Beijing News said today.

“The buyers offered 6 yuan (9c) for a kilo, but as to where they will sell the rats, they would not say,” the newspaper quoted a local resident as saying, adding that villagers had to catch the rats live.

“If we want to do that, there is no problem. We could catch 150 kilos of rats in one night .. .but we will not do this against our conscience,” the villager was quoted as saying.

Some Guangdong restaurants were promoting “rat banquets”, charging 136 yuan ($20.70) for one kg of rat meat, the newspaper said.

Chinese media reported last week that some internet users from Guangdong had offered rat recipes as a way to deal with the problem.

Scientists have also blamed China’s massive Three Gorges Dam project and climate change for the Hunan rodents’ flight to dry land.

So, just for a laugh I thought I would organise some info on the sorts of nasty things rats are known to carry.

Eat up!

Swedish design chain Ikea wants you to sleep in-store over night!

Consumerism gone crazy?

Haven’t yet finished the shopping you wanted at Ikea, and the store looks like it’s about to close. Oh no! Guess you better head for the exits…Or do you?

No need to worry folks, you can stay in the store overnight, not a problem.

The Guardian reports:

“It will be like an alternative hostel,” said Frode Ullebust, a company spokesman. “There will be the regular dormitory with lots of beds stacked up together. We will also have a bridal suite, with a round bed and a hanging chandelier, and the luxury suite, where customers can enjoy breakfast in bed.”.

Every night the 30 customers permitted to sleep over will be able to stock up on meatballs, Norwegian salmon and cranberry mousse as Ikea is offering free dinner and breakfast. “The shop opens at 10am so if they are lazy, people might get woken up by shoppers testing out their mattresses,” Ullebust said.

Customers will also be able to take their bedsheets home. “It’s a nice souvenir,” he added. “We will also give them bathrobes with the Ikea Hostel logo on, and some slippers, so they won’t get cold at night.”

Now that’s just plain awesome. How much for the luxury suite I should wonder? Sounds like one hell of an idea for a honeymoon.

The crazy new idea will be tested in two Oslo, Norway warehouses. No word yet on the concept catching on in other parts of the world.

Sure hope it does!

It all begs the question, where did this sleep over Ikea idea come from?

Well, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion it must have been from this recent Aussie comedy sketch…
