Hell! They’re still complete idiots

Dominion Post 30 January 2012
A Wellington couple saw red when their nine-year-old son came home clutching a pen in the shape of a bloody syringe. Joel Crampton was given the Hell Pizza pen as a prize at Upper Hutt’s H2O Xtream pool. On the side was written “Hell, creating addicts since 1996“. The pen, complete with a plunger and fake blood, was appalling, Joel’s mum Mary Crampton said. “It’s a shocker of a prize. It looks like it’s full of blood. I was completely shocked. They must think drug taking is cool.” Joel’s father, Dave Crampton, said he was surprised the syringe-shaped pen was given out to a child….Hell Pizza director Callum Davies said the pens were not supposed to be given out to children.

Oh wow – that’s reassuring. It’s ok for adults to make light of drug addiction

“I would like to know how it happened.” The company has courted public controversy on numerous occasions, including an incident in 2006 when condoms mailed out to promote its Lust meat pizza attracted a record 685 complaints.

Hee! Thanks to Family First members 🙂

    For evil to succeed, it just takes good people to be silent 🙂

    We’re boycotting. Hope you will too.

    I cannot understand why any company with an ounce of decency would give out pens like that let alone to children. Our society is certainly on a slippery slope.

    I have always boycotted them based on the name and the names of their products. I would not contribute money to an organisation that promotes Hell, Lust, … etc. Nowadays even promoting murder with food would probably still gain customers.
