In the world of bad ideas made worse, I offer as Exhibit A Domino’s new “Bread Bowl Pasta.” Holy crap. I can just imagine the meeting where this idea came up. “Imagine yourself eating a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs. What do most people want with that? No, not wine, BREAD! We all know that most folks like some bread with their pasta. And so, why not combine the two? Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you, the Bread Bowl Pasta!”
If I were in that room, I would have either hurled or uttered a stream of profanities, but not because I was elated over the proposition. Because I would have been stunned by how desperate Domino’s had become to introduce this ridiculous item. And it might make me want to dream of the good old days when the grossest thing about Domino’s was the Youtube videos their employees posted.
