The Pizzas They Are A-Sellin'

Posted by - 06:15 PM on 12/26/10
A man with a Bob Dylan backstage pass disguised himself as a crew member and ordered 178 pizzas at a local pizzeria as a prank claiming they were for the band and crew. The man's lawyer said that the man will in fact compensate the pizzeria $4,000 for the prank.

Well that backfired pretty hard, now didn't it?

Edit: I like how the very last thing from the MSNBC article says "Some pizzas were given away, but most were thrown out."

The man agreed to pay for the prank just 3 days ago. We're a little late, but not completely un-newsworthy late.

Hipsters wouldn't even consider this news.

Not sure what hipsters has to do with this...?

I've worked at pizza places for 4 years..not one would have ever believed this was legit. Dunno why they would actually make 178 pizzas without the dude coming in and paying first haha

$4,000 seems pretty expensive for 178 pizzas

I guess it was because he had the backstage pass and was disguised... it couldn't have been that ridiculous to believe him.

That's around $22 a pop plus tax, not too crazy. If you order extra-large pizzas with toppings/extra cheese/special crusts... that'll get the price up there even at a chain like Papa John's or Domino's, let alone a small family-owned place.

Plus he's probably paying more than the value of the pizzas/tax/tip alone in lieu of punitive damages.
