Get the door, it’s your soulmate

ToppingstellallJust in time for Valentine’s Day, Domino’s Pizza is flogging the results of an absurd study that suggests you can find true love—or least compatibility—by paying attention to people’s choice of pizza toppings. Conducted by Domino’s, in conjuction with something called the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, the “Toppings Tell All” study claims to be able to predict attraction based on topping choices. Just one example: “If you prefer traditional single-meat toppings like pepperoni, your attraction is for a person who likes a pizza loaded with meat toppings, perhaps because you’re attracted to their unbridled zeal and passion.” The whole thing is packaged with silly promotional blurbs like, “Does sausage signify sizzle?” There’s lots more where that came from, including this possibly handy infobit for those unlucky in love: “Those who prefer single vegetables are attracted to just about everyone.”
