Domino's Pizza is as American as apple pie -- and just as starchy. The pizza purveyor has been all over American TV, telling us how good it is; now it looks as though Domino's strategy of brainwashing the masses has been exported to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Domino's Pizza Japan is offering a one-hour job to a "lucky" winner. The pay for this one hour of work? A hefty 2.5 million yen.

That number was chosen to celebrate Domino's 25th year peddling pizza in Japan.

It translates to 31K, which might sound like a lot of money -- but not if you're selling your soul to the dark side of mass-produced messes of cheese and sauce.

The details of the job won't be revealed until November 10; we're hoping it doesn't involve certain traditional Japanese customs, such as bukkake.

Talk about toppings!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
