The crucial question must be asked of President Obama and Mitt Romney during the live telecast of next week's town hall-style debate at Hofstra University.
Is sausage or pepperoni the new boxers or briefs?
Pizza Hut is offering free pies for life to the brave voter who asks the White House contenders which of the two favorite toppings they prefer during the next presidential debate.
"We recognize there are a lot of serious issues to be debated, but we also know a lot less serious but no less important ones are being discussed every night inside houses across the country," Pizza Hut executive Kurt Kane said in a statement.

Hell, I'd do it.
Romney should make it a talking point; some people are so hungry in Obama’s economy they would waste a debate question.
Winning this would be a punishment for me.
Do they use PORK sausage and pepperoni? That could make Obama a litle uncomfortable.
President Obama, sausage or schnauzer?
This is extremely tacky and contemptible for big business, and deserving of mockery and condemnation.
I was a manager for Pizza Hut in the early to mid-80’s. The pizza was actually good quality then. Now, it’s some strange faux cheese and frozen dough. Absolutely terrible.
Do I have to pick Pizza Hut?
There’s got to be a clever way to incorporate it into a substantial question. If sausage were to represent X and pepperoni Y, would you prefer more sausage or more pepperoni in slicing up your tax pizza pie?
A lifetime of pizza from Pizza Hut is more of a punishment than a reward! (BARF!)
Maybe somebody could ask Obama if he’s even READ the 3,000 pages of the Obamacare bill. I’d like to see him answer that.
Dominos just came out with a fresh dough, fresh made Pizza. It’s very good!
It is the worst pizza I’ve ever eaten. The best pizza I’ve ever had is from The Cape Cod Cafe in Brockton, MA. The linguica and green pepper bar pie. The second best pizza is the shrimp, cheese and green pepper, white pizza my husband makes from scratch, with a whole wheat crust. It’s a thin-crust pizza that he cooks on tiles in the oven. Delicious.
I’ve never been a big fan of Dominos, but their recent ads are intriguing. One thing about living in Massachusetts is that we have an almost limitless number of very good to excellent pizza and sub shops, so the competition is fierce.
First off, the answer is pepperoni.
But secondly, I wouldn’t even want this, I’m trying to stay healthy, and pizza hut is so far from that...also, it doesn’t taste good, it’s greasy, it smells greasy, and it’s nothing like a thin crust pizza from a fine New York style pizzeria.
Don't get to the Bay State very often, but if I'm in Brockton at dinnertime, I now know where to eat.
My favorite pizza is found at Lomeli's in Brea, Calif.
What a lovely, cozy little restaurant! Thank you. :)
Late 70s and early 80s Pizza Hut was some of the best.
This is big business, a massive corporation, and they are seeding the public hoping that someone is unstable enough to give them this cheap shot, which translates to millions of dollars of advertising to them.
This is an assault on the dignity of the presidential election and of the American nation, done as merely a business decision, it is extremely tacky and exploitative, a profit over anything, business decision.
Since Sausage and Pepperoni are both Sausagae (Eyetalian pronounciation) The answer is ......
MY Pizza is the best pizza I have ever had!
Thanks to 0bama you can't have both.
Obama will have his pizza sprinkled with mush chooms, magic oregano and pixie dust.
I tried it this week myself. I was so impressed that I wrote a letter to them commending the product. I don't order pizza frequently, but this was by far the best pizza that I have had in many years.
The larger question on everyone’s mind: Why can’t the rubes use EBT at Pizza Hut? We could call them ObamaPies.
But...But...I don’t LIKE Pizza Hut pizzas!
(and isn’t pepperoni a sausage?}
That right there is the entire point. This is business in action. As far the dignity of the presidential election...Since that clown Obama is running, there is no dignity anyway.
It may be a somewhat tacky, but like I said, this is business. And if some enterprising citizen wishes to take them up on the offer, so much the better.
And why is everybody ragging on pizza hut's pizza? Its good enough for my simple palate. I like pepperoni, but I'll take sausage too.
It is irresponsible, exploitative business.
They are sending out signals hoping for someone unstable enough to disrupt the nations presidential debate on national television to score profits.
This is an anti-American stunt, for corporate profits.
As a supposed conservative, you know that money isn’t everything, and that patriotism and America matters more, you may even be able to realize that if this had happened in the first debate, it may have diluted the massive political effect of the debate on the public and in changing the polls.
Welcome to freerepublic.
Because this type of debate (at this level) is practically geared towards inane questions.
I’ll boycott a company that tries to disrupt my nation’s presidential debate for a cheap advertising stunt, you can keep praising gold without conscience, as much as you want.
Either way, it appears we are at an impasse. I respect your opinion nonetheless.
Why do we have to choose? You can get both at Pizza Hut right now! (This post brought to you by the Piazza Hut corporation of America)
I think debates themselves are undeniably tacit and the campaign process as a whole deserving of mockery. If you wanna argue the stakes are serious, well, then why are we deciding on the basis of a few hours of dueling soundbites? We can’t be very serious about it. So what’s a little frivolity on top of the unseriousness?
tacit = tacky
For me the spelling challenge was to use the word tacky, instead of cheesy.
I consider this management decision without conscience, I would be taking a closer look at the kind of manager that considered this a respectable, responsible, corporate action.
“Cold blooded”? I don’t get it. They’re not encouraging people to assassinate Obama/Romney and shout “Semper Pizza Hut!”
No, you’re changing your argument. It was about pulling a solemn occasion into the mud if filthy lucre. It was not a coldblooded but a “tacky” move. Well, debates are tacky on their own. I ‘m not saying the audience should start mooning the candidates or every question should be a put-on, but come on. What’s a little frivolity on top of frivolity in a world where we once asked a president about his underwear?
“Cheesy” or not cheesy would have more to do in my mind with whether you want to make a bad pun (get it?).
I’m not changing anything, and even if you find election debates “tacky” which is a weird enough view for someone dedicated to elections and politics, it still has nothing to do with a corporation making a “cold blooded” or “emotionless”, or a “clear-eyed” or a “planned, calculated” business decision to attempt to disrupt the national debate in front of 50 or 60 million viewers for free guerrilla advertising.
This isn’t frivolity by an individual, or something spontaneous, this is a corporate business decision.
You say you didn’t change anything, but anyone interested can look it up and see that you originally called the move “tacky,” now say tackiness doesn’t matter, and prefer to use loaded terms like “coldblooded.” You, sir or madams, are an argumentative cheater.
By the way, why is it “weird” to think elections and politics are serious but debates aren’t? Am I obligated to care about endless repitition in stump speeches, spin doctoring on MSM shows, glittering generalities at the conventions, and everything else we occupy ourselves with to avoid thinking about reality outside the game?
Good lord man, many words describe it, it is tacky just like I said, I also called it “an anti-American stunt”,”this cheap shot”, “an assault”, “extremely tacky and exploitative”, cold blooded, emotionless, clear-eyed,planned, calculated.
I haven’t changed anything, and as I said, it is not about “frivolity” This isnt frivolity by an individual, or something spontaneous, this is a corporate business decision.
Adjusted for inflation the price of a 1980s pizza would be $40. Most customers today want cheap, not good. Quality will come back in fashion some day.
