This Week: Kanye West Owned by Pizza Hut — Plus Which States Have the Most Pizza Per Capita?

Apparently Kanye West, the man who has claimed “I am the number one human being in music,” needs money.  He Tweeted last week “I need more access to money in order to bring more beautiful ideas to the world.” While this in and of itself was bizarre given that Kanye is one of the most successful recording artists of this century and is married to a very wealthy celebrity, the responses took another turn when @PizzaHutUK got into the mix.  They decided to lend a hand by offering Kanye a job: “Stop telling everyone you need dough and try kneading some dough. We got your C.V. today. You start at 9am tomorrow.” While this was hilarious in and of itself, @PizzaHutUK took it to the next level by posting Kanye’s “resume” in the style of his new album cover.  This might be one of the greatest trolling jobs we’ve ever seen:

Thank’s to Scott’s Pizza Tours’ blog for posting this awesome find from Anna Orchard – a definition of pizza dating all the way back to 1892.

How do you find an international criminal known for forging passports for terrorists?  Take advantage of his love for pizza, obviously! Hamid Reza Jafary, know as “The Doctor,” was finally caught when the police in Thailand figured out that he consistently ordered from his favorite pizza joint.  The case proves once and for all, you can change your identity, change your phone numbers, and run from the law, but giving up your favorite pizza joint? Near impossible.

Best Hotline Bling Drake spoof yet? We think so:

What an awesome article from the NY Times on the arduous process that Pizza Moto took in setting up their new restaurant in Carroll Gardens/Red Hook.  The “Eggs in Hell” pizza looks like some of the best breakfast pizza we’ve ever seen! We’ll be heading there as soon as possible to give you our take

When it comes to pizza, West Virginia and Nevada surprisingly top the list of the most pizza joints per capita.  The least pizza places per capita?  Hawaii.  For a state that has a type of pizza named after it, we’re surprised that Hawaii ranks so low.  But we’re most shocked by the fact that New York doesn’t even rank in the top ten!  There are also some super interesting pizza facts in Estately’s study of which states have most pizza places per capita
