Marketing brilliance

One of the local pizza chains has introduced desserts to their menu. As a promotion to get people to try the gooey monstrosities, you can get a free dessert when you buy a two-topping large pizza for $11.99. DH was in charge of dinner one night because I was not going to be home until later, so he and DD decided to order pizza. "Thank you for calling MegaPizzaChain! Would you like to take advantage of our $11.99 pizza and sweet treat offer? You get a large pizza with two toppings and a yummy dessert!" said the perky pizza chick. "Um...well, how much is the large pizza if I don't get the dessert thing?" DH asked. "A large would be $14.99," she replied. I love a place that essentially pays us to get additional food. so, if anyone else out there would like to pay me to eat, or to bring home desserts that I may or may not choose to eat, let me know.
