Happy Bad Poetry Day!

Posted by Domino's India I August 19th, 2011

Bad Poetry day? Yeah, you read that right! The 18th of August is celebrated as Bad Poetry day. Belated Best wishes of the day to you! But why, you ask? But the real question is, why not? :)

We all have a poet inside us, but it’s just that some of us aren’t that great. So what? Let’s face it – not all of us can play with words, but why should that be a deterrent? Bad Poetry Day celebrates the hidden poet inside all of us, the one that is made fun of by others, the one that we embarrass ourselves with, the one that wrote many a verse and stashed it in the trash. It’s okay to write bad verse guys, ‘cos if not for us, how would the world identify the real poets? ;)

How this day began, is when a group of high school friends met up, wrote some really bad poetry and sent it to their high school teacher! It became such a hit that many followed suit.. Haha, fun isn’t it? That’s the whole point of Bad Poetry Day – to be pointless. :)

So go on, write out a few lines, send it to someone you like and make them laugh… Or, you can always try the old school teacher too ;) [Psst, maybe you can send them a Domino’s pizza along with poetry so they don’t get too pissed off with ya! ;)]

Here’s to all the Bad Poets of the World!

Hey, you’re a poet!
But you don’t know it.
Try writing some verse,
But don’t be terse.
Pick up pen and paper,
Write it all down.
Show it to others,
But never mind their frown! :D

If you have tried writing some bad poetry but never showed it to anyone, here is your chance to be rewarded for the attempt. Check out our Bad Poetry Contest.

And remember, life is too short to care about grammar! B)


Wish this lasts forever…

They said Good-bye on farewell day and went separate ways… with heavy hearts and small smiles on their faces. Just then, she wished school could last forever.

…..

Her friends clapped. Her parents were proud. Everyone around her was full of praise. She had just become the best singer in India. She wished that moment could last forever

…..

As they stood there, holding hands and watching the sunset, he whispered “I love you” to her. She wished that moment could last forever.

…..

She scolded him for not eating and got angry at him soiling his shirt… but at that moment, when her son got into the school bus and waved, she loved him more than ever. She wished that moment could last forever.

…..

She was lost in a different world… where only dark chocolate and butterscotch can exist. The fluffy cream and the soft cake… Domino’s Pizza’s new Butterscotch Mousse Cake – Is that what they called heaven on earth?

She couldn’t make the rest of those moments last… but she resolved to make this last for as long as she could! :D Something this delicious – you just wouldn’t want it to end!

Domino's Butterscotch Mousse Cake

Domino’s Pizza takes great pleasure in introducing the new Butterscotch Mousse Cake – a new cold dessert that is so yummy; you will never want it to end! Have you tried it yet? Do try it soon and let us know what you think! :D

Forever yours,
Domino’s Pizza ;)


Coke Studio Episode 3 – a sneak peek

Posted by Domino's India I June 29th, 2011

Coke Studio @ MTV has released a teaser of what to expect in the next episode that goes On Air this friday (July 1st).

Coke Studio Episode 3

The artistes that will be performing are -

  • the Wadali Brothers from Punjab, who rooted in the Sufi tradition and bring to the table genres like Gurbani, Kaafi, Ghazals and Bhajans. With their traditional folk background, we hope they would make a perfect base for a yummy musical pizza!
  • the ever popular Sunidhi Chauhan, who began to sing at the age of four and still continues to, with her own touch of class and grace. With the ability to bring out the most difficult of nuances with ease and that marvellous voice of hers, she is definitely going to tbe the crowd’s favourite topping!
  • Mausam Gogoi from Assam, brings the touch of the north-east into this party. What started for him as silly stunt at college has now grown to be his biggest passion – music. He could well be the surprise element or the secret ingredient that we are looking for.
  • Music is incomplete without rhythm and Bondo Fernandez will provide precisely that, come Friday evening. An internationally renowned percussionist, we expect Bondo to give us some foot-tapping rhythms that will blow the world over but yet take us to back to precious Goan childhood.

With a combination that covers the North, South, East and West, one just cannot go wrong! What do you think? Tell us your opinion in the comment box below!

Come 7pm on Friday, order your pizzas (remember we are 25% off on Coke Studio Fridays!), get comfy on the couch and let the music begin! :)
