Reuters reports:

People with "Bush for President" bumper stickers were three times more likely to order meat-topped pizzas than "Dean for President" drivers.

1) Domino's issues numbers like this every year. They make the usual media statistics look like the freaking periodic table.

2) Why on earth would _anyone_ order pizza under the name "Paris Hilton"? I can imagine a certain number of lunatics thinking the government is monitoring their toppings -- and can therefore see a "John Ashcroft" here and there. But Paris Hilton? I didn't realize anyone outside NY had heard of her until a couple of months ago.

Just call me Rusty Shackleford...

I usually order as "Paris Hilton's Mangled Old Growler". They tend to rush the orders when I do.

According to the survey of 630 drivers, nine percent of people who answer the door in the nude tip more than 20%, compared with 2% of people in pajamas.

Where do the nude tippers stash their cash?

this finally settles the whole row about dubya's supposed "compassionate" bent:

Among political pizza findings, people with "Dean for President" bumper stickers on cars in their driveways tipped 22% higher than people with "Bush for President" bumper stickers.
BUSH LIED PEOPLE DIDN'T GET TIPPED (enough)!!!!!!!!!!!111

It's not that, its just that the nude ones most likely dont have exact change

Or, more likely, they're not hanging around for the change, like, here's fifty bucks, give us the capricciosa, slam the door.

How did we get started on this shit?

Ah, yes. My days as a "delivery god" for the best damn pizza in the world (email for directions). (I was a delivery god instead of a delivery boy because one semester finals week I delivered 84 pizzas in just over 7 hours without making a single mistake. Unfortunately, I didn't get tipped very well, either.) I'm willing to bet Domino's doesn't report some of the more interesting "tips" some delivery guys get. Money is great, but . . . ;->=

What I wanna know is, what percentage of Gore supporters ordered it without meat OR cheese?

This would give us a line on how Dean is doing with the all-important (in the Democratic primaries) vegan voting bloc.

(Remember -- if meat is murder, then dairy products must be tit-grabbing!)

This might also explain some of the nudity -- the Dean supporters can't wear leather belts, their pants won't stay up, so why bother with clothes?

Nude ones seek to end it quick -- keep the change, slam.

Posted by: jc at December 31, 2003 at 02:59 PM

This is a misleading statistic! It presupposes Orthydox Jews will be voting for Dean which is about as likely as them voting for Rev. Al! Besides, everyone knows pizza is better with some dead animal on it. What are the DeanieBabies thinking?

Come on, we all know Bush supporters favor a topping of oil and fresh baby Iraqi hearts.

Or plastic turkey.
