Rescue Operation of the Day: Woman Uses Pizza Hut Delivery Order to Escape Hostage Situation

A Florida woman was being held hostage in her home by her boyfriend on Tuesday, and a Pizza Hut helped save her life.

Cheryl Treadway and her kids were being threatened by a man named Ethan Nickerson at knifepoint and were not allowed to leave.

Nickerson also took away her cell phone, but he let her use it briefly to order a pizza, according toMyFox Tampa.

That’s when she used some quick thinking to write “911 hostage help” in the comments section of her order.



A chef at the Pizza Hut noticed the strange message and the restaurant quickly alerted the police.

The suspect was then arrested and charged, while Treadway and her kids escaped to safety.

This story is very similar to another real-life incident which was used in a Superbowl ad this year to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Special Delivery of the Day: Man Hands Pope Pizza in Naples

Doing God’s work all day can make a man hungry.

In a recent TV interview in Mexico, Pope Francis said that there was one thing he really didn’t like about his job.

“The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza,” he said.

This past weekend, his wish was – sort of – granted.

Francis motorcade was making its way through Naples on Sunday, when a man named Enzo Cacialli ran up to him and handed him a pie with the words “Il Papa” written out in dough.

Probably not the best idea in the world to sprint towards the popemobile like a maniac, but no one seemed to mind.

Cacialli is co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto, which also gave a pizza to Bill Clinton in 1994.

Here’s a closr look at the Pope’s pie from the Pizzeria “Don Ernesto” Facebook page which was topped with yellow cherry tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala:

Come February 23, Little Caesars Pizza is single-handedly going to give everyone in America a heart attack.

The company announced Wednesday that it will begin selling a new deep dish pizza with a crust that is wrapped in 3.5 feet of bacon.

It will contain two different types of bacon and will also be covered in pepperoni, because you need to eat more meat.

"It's unabashedly delicious," said Little Caesars spokesman Edward Gleich. "That's why we like to say, 'In Bacon We Crust!'"

This is just the latest in a long line of fast food monstrosities which get a lot of a attention online for their freakish nature and often unhealthy ingredients.

Recently KFC in the Philippines introduced us to a new iteration of its "Double Down sandwich, the "Double Down Dog," which consists of a hot dog covered in melted cheese with a piece of fried chicken as the bun.

And Pizza Hut in Australia announced back in December that it was selling a stuffed crust pizza covered in Doritos.

Little Caesars' Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish will cost $12 and be available until April… or when our arteries are sufficiently clogged.

A teenage girl with the Twitter handle “@Cellla_” did not want to go to work at her new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas last week, so she Tweeted about it.

And now she doesn’t have to go, because she was fired.

Her would-be boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet (thanks to one his employees), and he let her know himself that she didn’t have to bother showing up.





It seems like Robert is done with Twitter for while after this 15 seconds of fame. He hadn’t used his account since 2009, and he has since deleted all the tweets related to her firing.



“Made my point today,” he wrote. “I’ll check in again in 6 years.”

And Cella is seeing a lot of mixed reactions on her Twitter account now as the story spreads, but she just finds the whole thing so LOL.
