I was going to say I can’t believe this is what passes for “news” in Lexington, KY, but then I remembered the Today Show exists and covers the entire country. If you’ve been stumped as to how Domino’s Pizza makes its newest “creative” menu item carb-on-carb crime, the edible bread pasta bowl, the folks at Channel 36 news went in depth to discover the secret, and no doubt now have some kind of lifetime supply of Domino’s for their office:

There’s actually a whole other video from this same in-depth story that says Domino’s “spent six months” coming up with the idea for pasta bowls. Six months! They could have just asked any stoned college student for a menu idea, like Burger King presumably did with Chicken Fries.

    Did anyone else think it was creepy how much the reporter says *yes* in the video?

    gross. from the new domino’s “intestinal blockage” menu.

    failure pile in a sadness bowl!

  6. hey tony, ovens don’t boil.

    this must be domino’s attempt at striking back w/ good publicity after that uh-oh

  7. To quote Gabe: “who do I barf has a bigger barf, barf or barf?”

  8. And boom goes the dynamite

  9. I got a coupon for this the other day. I ordered it, but had to pay $2 for the delivery charge. Worst $2 I’ve ever spent on crap.

  10. Just as I figure… the bread bowls are little more than pizza dough shaped in an ungodly way. Dominos has the absolute worst crust of all pizza chains, hands down. It’s got all the taste of a communion wafer and is about the same texture too.

    I’d rather be served pasta in a bread bowl that was fashioned using Wonder Bread and glue.

    I am ashamed to admit that I ordered this and thought it was really good. The mac and cheese was decent. Way better than the Tuscani pasta from Pizza Hut.

  12. Gabe, my elementary school cafeteria was serving chicken fries ages before Burger King caught on.

    Forget the fucking pasta bowls, the most disgusting thing about that is that this passes for news. Did you fucking hear him say they were gonna do like 3 more segments on the damn bread bowls? How about the way the reporter kept saying “yes” as each item was listed? How about the fact that they don’t even pretend it’s not free advertising for fucking dominoes?

    too bad the damn things look so fucking delicious

  14. Domino’s Correspondent: worst job ever?

    anyone else disturbed by the sound the “cheese sauce” made? Its the grossest cheese whiz on carb on more carb looking thing i’ve ever seen.

  19. “The ovens are boiling.”
    No they are not.
