“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun,” the book says.
So it is with free toppings on Papa John’s pizzas after Redskins victories. Kirk Cousins, new to these parts, declared on Sunday that he would attempt to take advantage of the six-touchdown-12-free-topping extravaganza resulting from Sunday’s wild win.
If I did the math right, I can get a Large pizza from @PapaJohns w/ 12 free toppings b/c we won & scored 6 TD’s. Gonna try to use all 12

This seemed like a great opportunity for a blog post, so I asked readers to send me photos of their own 12-topping monstrosities. Then I googled the matter, and discovered that someone actually did a blog post with photos of a 12-topping monstrosity all of three years ago.
“Someone” being me. Time to brush up the resume again.
(Of course, that was after a preseason game. This was a regular-season game. So maybe this is still an original blog post.)
Regardless, 12 toppings are 12 toppings, and one of my readers apparently received his 12-topping pie before noon this Monday.
This is a pizza with double pepperoni, double sausage, double spicy Italian sausage, double extra-cheese, double bacon and double ham. Frankly, it doesn’t look particularly weird, but I’m assured that it is.
“You basically can only eat two slices before you’re full,” my reader reports.
UPDATE: Two more toppinged-out pizzas. The first, via David: Large Original Crust Cheese Pizza, with Three Cheese Blend, Green Peppers, Black Olives, Banana Peppers, Grilled Chicken, Onions, Mushrooms, Roma Tomatoes, Canadian Bacon x 2 , Pepperoni x 2.
The second, via @Slicktrip. Toppings undefined.
