Papa John's Fritos Chili Pizza a Sure Sign of Our Impending Doom

Thankfully, there are seemingly an infinite number of places to get pizza these days in Tucson, so other than seeing Mr. Papa John hanging out with Peyton Manning on TV now and then, I don't have to think so much about that particular national pizza chain. However, with the announcement of their new limited availability speciality pizza, I have to wonder: does the Bible mention the Fritos Chili Pizza specifically as a sign of the apocalypse or are we suppose to just infer that John the Apostle couldn't possibly make sense of the visions he had of this culinary monstrosity?

From the Papa John's press release:

Whether looking for a dinner option on Halloween or the perfect tailgating meal, the limited time product is available through November 23. The pizza will feature Papa John's signature-crust, real beef, hearty chili sauce, Roma tomatoes and onions, all topped with premium cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and baked to golden brown perfection. In keeping with the tradition of a time-tested recipe, the pizza is completed with a generous portion of original Fritos corn chips for a crunchy finish.

"At Papa John's, we love offering our customers exciting pizzas that add some flavor to each season," said Bob Kraut, Papa John's chief marketing officer. "It seemed like a no-brainer to collaborate with our beverage partner PepsiCo to bring its popular Fritos corn chips snack to our pizza and combine these traditional tailgating fall favorites - chili, cheese and added crunch - with Papa John's signature fresh-dough crust."

[...]

"Papa is amazed it took 30 years to put it all on a pizza. We finally did, and we're excited that the pizza will be available for our busiest day of the year, Halloween," said Kraut.
