With Japan’s meteorological agency predicting an abnormally brutal winter this year, businesses like Dominos are wondering if the inclement weather will potentially disrupt public transportation, bringing the food supply chain to a grinding halt. But hard times breed innovation, and apparently the people at Domino’s Japan are seriously considering a contingency plan involving reindeers as a reliable method for delivering their pies to the hungry masses.
But despite being brilliant timing with the Christmas season in full swing, Domino’s admits there are many logistical hurdles to overcome — no shit. Such issues include (but are not limited to):
A) Can the deliveries be completed safely? Because the last headline the world needs right now is ‘Man trampled to death by reindeer after ordering a pizza’, OR ‘Reindeer shot by hunters while doing its job’. You get the picture.
B) What distance can the reindeer travel to complete their deliveries? One mile, two miles, and more importantly what the Hell is going to happen when a reindeer crosses paths with a dog or a feisty cat?
It gets better…
