I shall find it impossible to join any boycott of Papa John's Pizza

There is a simple reason for that. I have never in my life had Papa Jon's Pizza and I have no plans to try it. It just isn't on my bucket list.

Neither is/was Godfather's Pizza. One reason for that above all others is that the name is offensive to me.

27. It's special pizza for dumbasses.



And yes, I'll shamefully admit I've eaten it. It's way better than Little Caesars, but that's about it.

2. Same

I've never been to one. I asked my son about them and he said they are horrible. Glad to know I will never experience them now!

4. You can still participate in the boycott

by telling anyone who will listen about Poopy John's greed and lack of concern for the welfare of those who made him stinking rich.

5. There are plenty of family run pizza shops where I live

that produce REAL pies. Those others joints run by sucessful marketers can keep their crap and their right wing owners will never get a dime from me.

We have a great local place that makes their own. We either get theirs or I make my own.

7. Hey Stinky. Whose pizza do you eat around here.

Three Brothers, Ledo's, Philly's Best...

We order out from Philly's Best most of the time.

8. You're not missing anything.

Papa John's pizza is disgusting. They put sugar in everything - the only even slightly redeeming quality this crap has is the garlic sauce - but even that is loaded with high fructose corn syrup.

9. The local one isn't bad

People at work would send out for one once in a blue moon if they had a coupon. Pizza Hut was better, though.

I can't boycott them now because I can no longer eat wheat.

10. Pizza is a good opportunity to buy local

 

Most towns have a local pizza place that's better than Papa John's or Dominoes. Heck, DiGorno's and other more premium frozen pizza is better than Papa John's or Dominoes.

20. Yep. I'll have Totino's before I'd eat Papa John's.

The best pizza around here is from the Greek restaurants, although Little Caesar's is not bad for five bucks. I tend to just make my own or have the occasional frozen one. Just about any of the frozen ones are better.

11. Ditto......

I had a Pizza Hut pizza in college but since then I was so disgusted with the quality and taste I could not eat them.

So this will be no loss for me or affect me.

Last time I ordered it, I got cold pizza. So even frozen pizza is better than Domino's.

23. Domino's was a staple in college

but that was 40 years ago. Nowadays it's either home-made, or from the place nearby that does a credible New York style pizza, and delivers. There are enough decent local pizzarias throughout the country that there's no point going to chains.

14. These are my local pizza joints

http://www.parkerpie.com/

rave reviews for this hippie hang out from all over the country- really.

http://www.positivepie.com/index-new.php?location=0

Not quite as lauded as Parker but very good pizza and a cool place.

Not that there are any Papa John's for a hundred miles in any direction.

18. Likewise.

There are several very good local pizza joints within walking distance of my place (fringe of downtown Portland...). I've cut back the wheat quite a lot, so I'm certainly not going to waste one of my wheat indulgences on anything but the best.

And that goes double for this assclown's product...

21. Living my life in the Chicago area, I am in the same boat.

There are far too many extraordinary local pizza joints to even consider corporate pizza.

Something as racist as Godfather's did in hiring Cain?

31. I have, as a consequence of living in some pretty sketchy places all around the world, a cast-iron

stomach. I can digest pretty much anything, rather like a street dog.

However, that Papa John's pizza does not agree with me in the slightest--it is a reflux-producing, icky-tasting load of yuck. Good pizza is found in Naples, in Roma, in Sicily...and that crap doesn't taste like good pizza to me. The sauce is just ... WRONG. Foul. Acidic. Lacking in flavor.

I had this opinion of that brand a decade or more ago, before I knew that this guy was a wingnut asshole.

I never ate a Godfather's pizza, but I don't like Herman Cain so he ain't getting a dime from me.

Never had one bite of either. Certainly won't start now.
