All Hail the Pizza Queen

Who doesn’t love pizza? I certainly do. Even bad pizza is still pretty good, because it’s pizza. Pretty much everyone can agree that a day with some sort of pizza is, in some way, a good day.

#1 - If you want pizza, you’ve got to put in the effort.

Emily O’Keefe of St. John’s, Newfoudland is going to test that theory. She saw that Domino’s Pizza was running a contest to win free pizza for a year. Emily started re-sharing and linking the contest on Facebook—over 50 times! Spamming her news feed probably didn’t win her many new friends, but it would all be worth it if it paid off...

#2 - Victory! Sweet, cheesy victory!

Once the page hit 15,000 likes, they picked a winner at random, and Emily’s name was the one that was chosen. Her reward? Vouchers for 104 free pizzas, enough for two pizzas a week over the next year. "I've described it as the happiest I've ever felt and that I no longer need to get married because I've reached my ultimate happiness,” she said. That’s someone who really loves a good pizza!

#3 - All hail Pizza Queen, ruler of deliciousness from crust to crust.

She’s now going by the royal epithet “Pizza Queen”, as she rules from on high with a fistful of free pizza vouchers in one hand and, presumably, a slice of pizza in the other. So far, she has been a benevolent ruler, sharing her cheesy bounty with friends, family and co-workers alike.

#4 - Spreading the joy with friends and coworkers

Emily has been celebrating her good fortune with pizza parties, every week, with her friends and coworkers. She’s said she’s happy that she can celebrate her win with her friends and family--and that with so much pizza, she can afford to treat everyone for a while!

#5 - Setting the bar high

Sounds pretty great! But it may not all be sunshine and happiness for everyone involved:
“That’s better than a wedding in my opinion. (But so my boyfriend knows, I do still want to eventually have a wedding; and now it has to top a year of free pizza in my heart.)”

#6 - Sounds like someone has some competition.

At least the boyfriend knows the stakes—all he has to do is out-perform two pizzas a week for the rest of the year with a wedding beyond compare. Hey, at least the catering is taken care of, right?

#7 - Enjoying a well-earned slice of happiness.

So sit back and relax, Pizza Queen. Life’s looking pretty good for now. You can just enjoy the bounty you have earned--for a year, at least, the pizza’s on you.

#8 - Dreaming of topping her good fortune.

As for the rest of us, we’ll just have to keep our eyes and ears open. Perhaps one day, we too can become pizza royalty. Keep your fingers crossed!
