(NEW YORK) — With rising fuel prices driving up the cost of food — and likely people to the polls this November — Pizza Hut has announced a new contest that somehow encompasses both the economy and politics.
The company says any person attending the Oct. 16 televised town hall debate between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney who asks either candidate “pepperoni or sausage?” will score free pizza for life.
In a press release, Pizza Hut, which is backing its own electoral entity, The Pizza Party, says the question must be asked, “To assure America that the real issues being debated in households across the country every night aren’t sidestepped by the candidates any longer.”
