Bacon Lollipop Via Neatorama


Even though Easter is still part of Passover this year, I hope some of these are in my basket with jelly beans and Peeps.

Groupon and Domino's Torture Jews On Passover

Let me preface this post by saying that I am Jewish and I use the headline in a bit of a mocking way, but not to mock the Jewish people in any way, shape or form.

There's an old joke about the ultimate Jewish dilemma being free ham.  
Something like that is happening now for real.  It's Passover, a Jewish holiday that involves not eating leavened items, like pizza.  So what arrives in my e mail today, but this offer from the people at Groupon and Domino's Pizza offering pizza at a ridiculously low price. 

Happy Passover, we're dealing on pizza!  Now I know that the offer is good for AFTER Passover, but isn't it just a little insensitive of Groupon and Domino's to send this offer out TODAY?  Full disclosure, I'm not a fan of Groupon's business practices when it comes to choosing their offers and partners, as evidenced in my previous post about their FTD Flowers Valentine's Day scam.  Someone at both Groupon and Domino's simply isn't thinking things through, and this is a very sad example of poor judgement. 

The FAIL Award of the day goes to Groupon and Domino's.
