Domino's to Arrest Former Employees for YouTube Food Sabotage


Two Conover, North Carolina Domino's Pizza employees who videotaped themselves sabotaging food with their own bodily excretions and put the footage (which also happens to mention that they're gay) on YouTube have warrants out for their arrest.

Conover Domino's writes:

"In the last 24 hours, videos of two of Domino’s Pizza employees appearing inappropriately within one of our franchise restaurants have been circulating online. Since the videos first surfaced yesterday, the two workers have been identified, fired and the affected franchisee has filed a criminal complaint against them, and there are warrants for their arrest. The opportunities and freedom of the internet is wonderful. But it also comes with the risk of anyone with a camera and an internet link to cause a lot of damage, as in this case, where a couple of individuals suddenly overshadow the hard work performed by the 125,000 men and women working for Domino’s across the nation and in 60 countries around the world. We apologize for the actions of these individuals, and thank you for your continued support of Domino's Pizza."

What a couple of idiots. Didn't Timothy Tackett teach them anything?

Rachel Maddow Discovers Perils of Drunk Shopping

Rachel Maddow never owned a television until recently after she and her partner Susan Mikula had too much to drink and went on an Amazon shopping spree:

Maddow "I got drunk last Thursday and ordered one on Amazon! (Laughs) Susan and I ordered take-out Chinese and I made cocktails and then somehow it just happened. I mean, it wasn't like we were on some total bender or something—it was a weeknight—but I woke up the next morning and there was the confirmation email stating that we had indeed bought a $400 television. Of course, since we were drunk, we had it shipped to the wrong place, so now we have to get this giant box all the way to NYC from our place up in Massachusetts and figure out how to install it. Neither of us have had a TV in years and years. The last time I lived in a house with the TV was in 1990, when I moved out of my parent's house to go to college. Now there's a giant box with a TV sitting in Susan's art studio waiting for us."

(via dossier)

Maddow is a self-described "mean dork" about drinking. Late last month she bullied Jimmy Fallon into drinking a more manly drink, the Bijou.

And she'll teach you how to make it, AFTER THE JUMP...

I never saw it. Actually I think I started it but ended up either finding it tedious or got distracted by something and gave up on it. Anybody who did see it agree with the following?

A UCLA professor's theory has caught the attention of the L.A. Times:

"Laure Murat of the UCLA Department of French and Francophone Studies takes the exploration of this topic much further in her lecture Thursday, in which she delves into Remy's embodiment of 'the lonely gay, both refined and the object of disgust, excluded and successful' and the animated movie as 'the story of the Oedipus conflict, mixed with issues of race and species.... If 'anyone can cook,' any queer guy has a role to play in this world -- at least in Paris."
