Snakes on a plane? How about snakes on a pizza?

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

"Snakes On A Plane"? How about snakes on a pie? In Hong Kong, Pizza Hut teamed up with one of the city's oldest restaurants to offer a snake soup pizza.

The flavors were muted and fleeting and a little dumbed down." Wow, that's a shame. But you know what I always say about the pizza biz. It ain't easy being cheesy.
