article imagePizza Hut promises free pizza for Obama-Romney debate question

"Sausage or pepperoni" could be the crucial question that wins one lucky Obama-Romney debate attendee free pizza for life in a PR stunt dreamed up by Pizza Hut.
Serious political debate is meant to be top of the agenda on October 16 when President Barack Obama faces off against rival presidential contender Mitt Romney in a debate at Hofstra University.
However, if one attendee dares to go off-script from the pre-screened questions and asks the question if "sausage of pepperoni" is the candidates preferred pizza topping, then a free pizza will be won every week for 30 years, courtesy of Pizza Hut.
The pizza chain released a press statement announcing the daring challenge " for the candidates to be able to show that they're in tune with all the issues" including pizza related.
The publicity stunt could well backfire by ticking off serious viewers tuned in hear more important issues debated. CS Monitor reported Alan Schroeder, author of "Presidential Debates: 50 Years of High-Risk TV," said he thought it unlikely anyone would pose the pizza question. He ventured "It's so unseemly, for a lifetime of free pizzas, to make a fool out of themselves in front of millions of people."
With the alternative prize of a check for $15,600 instead of free pizza, someone may just be tempted to rise to the challenge.
