Episode 38: Pepperoni Pauper

Episode 38

19th October 2011

A young couple battle embarrassing behavior and bags of trash in search of unpeeled prize tickets for a shot at redemption. And a free slice of pizza. Or a free Coke.

Episode notes

Flynn and Helen are frequent guests of a particular pizzeria in Canada that offers free prize tickets on their pizza boxes. Flynn, Helen’s boyfriend, goes to great lengths to find as many of these tickets as he can — even rummaging through the trash to find discarded and unpeeled tickets. Helen finds this extremely embarrassing and feels that no slice of pie is worth the disgraceful effort of dumpster diving. Is Flynn’s treasure hunt for free prizes an admirable quest? Is Helen’s embarrassment of her boyfriend’s trash digging ways justifiable? Only one man can decide!
