The birthplace of pizza may be cooking its pies with coffins
When the truth hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s a-mor-e.
When the pizza was cooked on an old coffin’s roof, that’s … a-pall-ing.
Even if you’ve gone to heaven, you still might be burning after you’re gone … that is, if you were buried in Naples, Italy. As it turns out, the birthplace of pizza may be stoking its wood-fired ovens with wood from, er, used caskets. “A gang might have set up a market for coffins sold to hard-hearted owners of bakeries and pizzerias looking to save money on wood,” Italian daily newspaper Il Giornale reported.
Hey, at least they’re reusing!
