When a pizzeria receives an order for 20 pizzas, it’s often assumed that the order is for a large number of people.
Unless it’s for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
One New York Domino’s employee accidentally snitched to the authorities on the Ninja Turtles Monday evening after assuming that their 20-pizza order was for a larger gathering of people.
Tyler Chad, 37-year-old answerer of phone at Domino’s, told reporters he assumed that the Ninja Turtles’ order was for a large gathering of people.
“Our government has strict rules with this COVID-19 pandemic that large numbers of people should not gather,” Chad explained. “When I get an order for 20 pizzas, that doesn’t sound like a small get-together.”
Chad admitted to posting to Reddit about informing on customers who ordered large amounts of pizza, assuming the orders were for illegally-large gatherings of people.
“It never occurred to me that it might be the, you know, Ninja Turtles.”
Leonardo, the leader of the Turtles, said he was surprised when government officials showed up a few hours after placing the order.
“I didn’t think a bunch of government folks would venture down here into the sewer system,” Leonardo said. “Not over a bunch of pizzas, anyway.”
Michelangelo, the orange-masked turtle, told reporters he laughed when the government showed up.
“Man, like, it’s just us eating some bodacious pizza, dude,” Michelangelo said. “Suddenly these G-dudes bust into our home talking about how they had gotten a tip from Domino’s that a large group of people had been illegally gathering with a bodacious amount of pizza.”
“I was like ‘dude, wrong sewer, there’s only four turtles, a rat, and zero anchovies here’.”
