Domino’s Sends Proof of Halibut Receipt to Begich

How do you like them halibut? I guess OK, says Domino’s CEO J. Patrick Doyle, to Sen. Mark Begich, who called out the pizza magnate after an ad went after the famous Alaskan fish.

Domino’s posted a picture of Doyle with the fish sent to him by the Alaska Democrat in an “I <3 Halibut” polo shirt, which lord knows, they probably had to have made for the occasion.

The tweet:

Thanks again @SenatorBegich…usually it’s pizza for Friday lunch. Today, Alaskan Halibut. It’s “ofishal” – I love it!

As HOH reported yesterday, Begich had sent the fish and a letter to Doyle accusing him of having an “uneducated palate.”

Congrats, Mark Begich. You now have one more soldier in the halibut fight. At least for the day. On twitter.
