Revealed: Spicy pizza titbits

Chicago, Dec. 30 (Reuters): The simple life has rubbed off on hotel heiress Paris Hilton — or so one would think judging by the amount of Domino’s pepperoni pizza ordered in her name.

“Paris Hilton” is the No. 1 fake name used by people calling for pizza deliveries, according to a survey of Domino’s Pizza drivers in Washington, D.C., released yesterday by the pizza chain.

And 38 per cent of those using the name of the socialite model ordered pepperoni topping.

US attorney-general John Ashcroft might want to open an investigation into these findings — he was No. 2 on the list of assumed names used by people ordering pizza.

Given his conservative bent, he probably wasn’t among those answering the door in the nude, who the survey said tend to tip better than people who answer in their pajamas.

According to the survey of 630 drivers, 9 per cent of people who answer the door in the nude tip more than 20 per cent, compared with 2 per cent of people in pajamas.

Among political pizza findings, people with“Dean for President” bumper stickers on cars in their driveways tipped 22 per cent higher than people with “Bush for President” bumper stickers.

People with “Bush for President” bumper stickers were three times more likely to order meat-topped pizzas than“Dean for President” drivers.
