Papa John's Founder Says He Ate 40 Pizzas in 30 Days From His Former Company, and It's Gotten Worse

quote [ Cheaper ingredients. Worse pizza?

Papa John's founder and former CEO John Schnatter gave his first major interview since beingousted from the company,and it's safe to say he's not happy with the way things went down.

Schnatter, 58, gave the wide-ranginginterview with Kentucky TV station WDRBwhere he criticized the pizza chain for everything from the quality of the pizza to its upper management. ]

Well, I guess that explains why he only ate 1 1/3 pizzas a day for the last month. Even if I toked a half oz. of notorious-OG indica I could not do that many...

Why Bear Fat Makes for Better Baking

quote [ While the technique is rare today, bear fat was a common ingredient for centuries, though one with a unique hangup. As with all omnivores, bears? fat takes on the general flavor of their diet. In early fall, when nuts, berries, and acorns dot North America?s forests, Shaw writes, bear fat is ?sublime ? virtually indistinguishable from the finest pork lard you can buy or make.? The fat of blueberry-eating bears in Montana, for example, assumes sweet, fruity hints and a slight purple tinge. But if a bear most recently ate fish or suburban garbage, the lard takes on a briney odor that ranges from low-tide to truly vile. ]

This only reinforces my desire to kill a bear, eat it, then wear its skin.

Stop looking at me like that.
