If you want to get big and fat in this country and grow to the size of the Goodyear blimp, there is no shortage of opportunities to do so. The latest comes courtesy of the folks at Domino's Pizza, who have come up with a new offer that makes some of their previous offers look like an order of celery sticks by comparison. The new offer is this: order a large pizza and Domino's will throw in a free order of 10 oven-baked brownies. Yes, brownies. Apparently, this is being offered on the theory that after someone polishes off, say, a thick, cheesy, pepperoni pizza and collapses on the couch in a stupor, the first thing he or she thinks is: Boy, it would be great to have some brownies right about now. Pizza and brownies - is that an artery-clogging doubleheader, or what?

For a pizza joint, it's a bold move to tell customers your crust tasted like cardboard and your sauce was like ketchup. But that's just what Domino's Pizza Inc. has been saying since last month in untraditional ads about the recipes it abandoned when it launched its reformulated pizza. The company's incoming CEO said the chain had no choice but to be honest about its old recipe pizza to win back customers. - Associated Press
