The Marion Country Sheriff's department in Oregon shared this story on their Facebook about how the delivery drivers at a local Domino's saved the life of a loyal customer:

On Sunday, May 8th an alert Domino’s delivery driver called the Sheriff’s Office after a regular customer failed to order a pizza from the Salem area company. Tracey Hamblen, an employee at Domino’s on Silverton Road NE, called the Sheriff’s Office after not speaking with the customer in 11 days. Mr. Hamblen had formed a relationship with the victim because of the regular orders and knew he suffered form severe health issues.

When the Sheriff’s Office arrived at the residence in the 4100 block of Penticton Circle NE, they could hear a man calling for help from inside the residence. Deputies forced entry and found Kirk Alexander, age 48, of Salem down and in need of immediate medical attention.

Thanks to the quick actions of Mr. Hamblen, Mr. Alexander is in stable condition at the Salem Hospital. The Sheriff’s Office would like to personally thank Mr. Hamblen for his quick actions and willingness to take time out of his day to care for others.

So far, it seems like this new "pizza robot" is only being introduced in New Zealand. According to a Facebook post by Domino's, the new delivery system, that they call DRU, isn't out in full force but it's getting there:

DRU has a passion for delivering piping hot meals and a nice warm smile to customers. While he won't be taking to the streets tomorrow, he is enjoying his early progress as a prototype and giving customers a glimpse into the future of what is possible.

This idea seems very similar to an April Fools day campaign that Domino's UK ran last year. Could that be what started this project?

Totally Necessary Invention of The Day: Domino's Creates an "Easy Order" Button For Your House

Looking to shave a few seconds off your pizza order? Well, you're in luck.

Domino's is testing out a new "Easy Order" button in the UK. And if you're really, really into pizza—this might do the trick for you.

From Engadget:

The Easy Order actually comes in two forms: a physical and a virtual button. The physical option is provided by Flic and is a tiny magnetic button that can be programmed to do a number of different things. We've seen it used to control various phone functions, like snoozing an alarm or taking a photo, in the past, but Domino's will pair it with an app over Bluetooth in order for it to become your pizza delivery companion. Simply save your address and payment details on the Domino's website or app and select your favourite order -- the rest takes care of itself.

We're one useless invention away from Smart House.

"Keep the change, ya filthy animal."

The month marks the 25 anniversary of Home alone. To commemorate the fact that the '90s were, yes, really THAT long ago—UberEATS is selling pizza from the Christmas classic.

Starting at 11 a.m., fans can order the classic cheese pizza that Kevin orders before scaring away the pizza guy.

Uber drivers bearing the Little Nero's hats and car logo will bring the pies in their appropriate Little Nero's Pizza boxes. The pizza will actually be local restaurants such as Numero 28 Pizzeria in New York, The Doughroom in Los Angeles, Big G's Pizza in Chicago or Patxi's Pizza in San Francisco.

If you order the pizza pie, you'll also get a digital code to watch Home Alone.

Social Media Fail of The Day: Hillary Clinton's Campaign is Powered by Pizza and Anal

Fun fact: Hillary Clinton's campaign is powered by pizza and anal.

At least that is what some Twitter users saw when they logged onto the platform via the mobile app yesterday and saw her campaign's unfortunate tweet.

The original tweet, viewed on desktop, is harmless enough.

But when viewed on mobile, things get rather saucy.

People noticed immediately. And they wouldn't let Hillz forget about it.

Hey, girl. Wanna come over for some pizza and anal?

Pizza pouch answers the question no one asked.

Have you ever been just hanging out and had an immediate urge for a cold, stale slice of pizza that you have to remove from a plastic pouch?

Have you ever wanted an edible necklace of old pizza?

Have you ever wanted other people to know that you have an uncontrollable need for pizza and absolutely no patience?

No. The answer to all of these questions is 'no'.



But still, if you want to buy a pizza pouch, you have that option as a free, individual human.

As described on the website:

No one should ever be without pizza. Sadly, (often tragically) pizza is not always available for immediate hand-to-mouth consumption. Prepare yourself. Keep and carry a backup slice with this specially designed Pizza Pouch. A durable zip-lock sealing neck-strap pie slice device. Always fresh and ready. BONUS: Just wearing this Pizza Pouch will instantly make you more popular and attractive. It's a bold (and delicious) fashion statement. Portable pizza. The best invention since delivery. * Please Note: Due to the sudden (understandable) popularity and limited stock on hand, these may not ship until October 18. Be patient. Be strong. They will come.





Seriously though, if you put a slice of pizza in that thing and it's even just a little bit warm, won't all the cheese and toppings pull off of it when you shove your greasy, greedy hand into it to dig it out?

I'm buying three.

One for me. One for a Christmas present. One as a spare for me.

New York Pizza Men Puts the Pope on one of their pizzas.

You might not know that the Pope is in America. Especially if you've been in a coma for the past month.

It's causing people to do some pretty intense things in the name of putting the papacy on its pedestal. Things like dressing their dogs up like the Holy See and creating emojis to welcome his visit.

Well, some pizza men in New York wanted to do something in their wheelhouse when the Pope comes to the Big Apple Sept. 25. So they put him on a pizza.

The five-hour process came from a place of respect according to local channel ABC 7:

"We want to do something special for the Pope, he's coming back to the city," said Tony Salihaj, the chef.

The highly anticipated arrival of Pope Francis in New York already has venues across the city cooking up a surprise or two.

"We decided to make an image of him the best we can," Salihaj said. "We're pizza men we're not artists."

Tony Salihaj says he came up with the papal pizza recipe along with a friend and then quickly put it into execution; with the help of mozzarella and ricotta cheese, tomatoes, anchovies, and peppers to round out the details and adornments.

"This took about five hours to make this one and lots of patience," Salihaj said.



Look at him in all of his greasy grace.



We can guess what their decision process looks like:
