Munchie's panacea: Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut seems poised to challenge Taco Bell as the cure-all for the red-eyed and munchied.

They've teamed up with Jim Breuer to promote their new "jackpot of awesome melted cheese" stuffed crust pan pizza. Breuer might be best known for his role as one of the tie-dyed, pot smoking compadres from 1998's Half Baked; a persona he likely won't live down soon.

America's Favorite Pizza doesn't seem nearly as coy about feeding the party as other foodsmiths. Kellogg's previously dropped their Frosted Flakes endorsement of U.S. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps following his acknowledgment that he had inhaled from a marijuana pipe.

"Michael's most recent behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg," said Susanne Norwitz, a spokeswoman for the company.

Breuer certainly seems irritable and hungry in what appear to be staged outtakes from the filming for Pizza Hut.

One can only imagine who Yum! Brands Inc., owner of both the Taco Bell and Pizza Hut brands, will pursue as their next spokesperson. Perhaps Tommy Chong has an open schedule?
"Hey ma-an, get your hands of my Kentucky Grilled Chicken."
