Pizza fail….and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

You’ve seen him on TV commercials, and in print ads….and today ‘Papa’ John Schnatter came to my ‘hood, complete with his now-famous Camaro, a small media circus, and autograph hunters (the ‘random hand’ at right). Of course, he was here for the Papajohns.com Bowl.

John arrives...


After meeting a few fans outside, he headed inside to take a turn at cranking out a pizza. I was happy to see he hit the handwashing station first. The boss never would have heard the end of it if he’d launched in without proper sanitation.

Keeping clean...


He said it had been a very long time since he’d made a pizza, but he seemed to do just fine, even while dodging a crowd of cameras.

Like riding a bike...


John’s words caught up with him when he placed his finished pie on an oven conveyor that was turned off, then went off for a quick interview. (A few minutes later, a store employee spotted his mistake, and put it on the working conveyor.)

Pizza fail.


John really was a super nice guy, and when he headed outside, even hopped in the Camaro and revved the engine so we could hear how mean it sounded. He then left not in the Camaro, but in the furthest back of seats in an SUV. You’d think they’d let the boss ride up front. :)
