Papa John's, Facebook on a mission to bulk up skinny nerds

Facebook users who become fans of Papa John's will receive an e-coupon good for one free medium-size pizza with any online pizza order.

Papa John's Pizza

A tragic subculture in our country rarely receives the media attention it needs and deserves. The group I allude to, of course, is the underweight nerd. The Simpsons has Comic Book Guy, Family Guy has Peter Griffin, even The Nutty Professor has Sherman Klump. The skinny guys have...Steven Q. Urkel. Why should all the overweight nerds get all the spotlight?

Facebook and Papa John's pizza are finally teaming up to give the little dudes a little help in their quest to be weightier. Any Facebook user who becomes a fan of Papa John's will automatically receive an e-coupon good for one free medium-size pizza with any online pizza order. The offer expires December 1, so be sure to plan your pig-out soon.

Are these pizza promotions the start of a trend ?
