Now this is news!!! My daughter, who is potty training, did a #2 in the toilet yesterday, where's that story?

I applied at Papa Murphys and they said they didn't need a host... just my luck.

Wow, this makes "Man bites dog" a full front page story.

Wow, you mean there are actually classes for this? I worked a lot of fast food management in my younger days and we learned "on the job".

I honestly think this is one of the best articles ever published by the LJWorld. I am bewildered why this isn't getting national attention.

Keep up the good work LJWorld!

If they televised her training, I may put the KU game on the back burner.

I didn't know pizzas are trainable. What kind of tricks can they do?

AZH, I don't think anyone is looking down their nose at somebody for working for a living. Rather, people are having fun with the story because not every human accomplishment is actually news worthy.

So, to pile on with the fun, I can imagine the class catalog notices: All students registering for Cheese 405 must have previously completed Pepperoni 101 receiving a grade of C or better, or have a signed permission by the pizza-delivery guy.

Congrats Hughes-Pfeifer. If you read this, please don't take it personally.

Congratulations, Malory! Not everyone achieves a supervisory position fresh out of high school. Good for you!

I don't think it's a matter of looking down at Ms. Hughes-Pfeifer as much as looking down at LJWorld from the "Why in the world is this here?" perspective.

I myself have never been crazy about the propensity of papers to publish too much information. I'm surprised they didn't post her work schedule for the convenience of the whacko customers she might encounter.

It's not a matter of being "newsworthy". It's called human interest. Most small town newspapers thrive on this. It allows the company to get a little free advertising and the employee gets a little recognition for a job well done.

I'll add my congrats to Malory as well and I'll get a Papa Murphy's for the game tonight.

All- This is what we call a business brief. Companies can send in items about their employees and we run them as a form of recognition. Any company can send in information and we'll consider running it.

I use to work at Pizza Co and Pizza Shuttle, threw a lot of pie back in the day, I loved making pizzas. Especially when customers were waiting, I would do lots of spinning, tossing, arm rolls it was a blast, got applause for it hundreds of times. So, Andini you are wrong, at least 1 person likes to make pizza.

ROFL......I can see including this in the online edition since it doesn't cost anything extra, but this article was in the print edition too? That's just too funny. I'm going to forward this to all of my friends, because it's too good not to share.

The best part about this?

At some point, somebody saw this in the back burner links of the site, and had this thought:

"Wow, what a silly, pointless, time wasting article. I'm going to take some time to comment on how silly and pointless it is, and so it will end on most discussed and then everybody will spend some time looking at it to see what a waste of time it is."

Jonathan, a business brief might be what you at the paper call it, but we the readers clearly call it mundane to the point of being hysterically funny.

I think the explaination is as hilarious as the brief itself.
