So far, it seems like this new "pizza robot" is only being introduced in New Zealand. According to a Facebook post by Domino's, the new delivery system, that they call DRU, isn't out in full force but it's getting there:

DRU has a passion for delivering piping hot meals and a nice warm smile to customers. While he won't be taking to the streets tomorrow, he is enjoying his early progress as a prototype and giving customers a glimpse into the future of what is possible.

This idea seems very similar to an April Fools day campaign that Domino's UK ran last year. Could that be what started this project?

23 Memes to Help You Over the Humpday Hump

We're in this together. Whether we like it or not, all of us are trying to make it by, do enough to make it through one more day without a pink slip, all the while dreaming of a life where 9-5 is just when the poolside cabana bar is open. But back to reality, the work week is a tedious and evil thing. Seemingly never-ending, draining us of any semblance of positivity and energy, its no wonder millenials try to avoid having an actual job like the plague. Why work when you can keyboard? But for those of us who have grown out of living in our parents' basements, here's a list of perfect work memes that are all about the struggles people go through as they go through crests and troughs of the waves of the work week. 

An assortment of memes about school, work, pizza, dogs, snapchat, kids, wieners, dick pics, hair, job hunting.

An intrepid Louisville, Kentucky delivery driver delivered his pizzas in spite of the fact that he was carjacked and stabbed in the back.  Coincidentally, and luckily for him, his destination was the emergency room of a local hospital. He managed to bring the pizzas into the building to make the delivery before collapsing from his wound. According to local news station WKLY, he is in stable condition and recovering well.

Memories Pizza made waves this week when they openly declared they would deny catering service to gay weddings and other practices they say would infringe upon their religious beliefs - as is now within their legal right in Indiana. Predictably, late night television, the internet, and Twitter had a field day with the small business in an even smaller town.

Nowhere is that more apparent though on the company's Yelp page, which now resembles the twisted amalgamation of every internet comment thread you'd never want to read in your life ever. Above you can see but a fraction of the impotent web-rage that the pizza place has generated, both in support and dreision. Yelp staff has already undergone an extensive process to remove violent and threatening comments from the page, but what remains is horrifying enough on its own. 

Memories set up a GoFundMe crowdsourcing page to cover the "financial loss endured by the proprietors' stand for faith," generating $240,000 in less than 24 hours. The more cynical among us might consider this a blatant cash grab and publicity stunt for a tiny pizza joint in an unknown town, but I mean... It costs a lot of money to generate this kind of controversy and garner support from American conservatives, right?
