    "The anticipation and buzz around this question proves that this debate should be taken to the people. We're no longer asking a few hundred attendees at the town hall presidential debate on Oct. 16 to pose the question, rather we're bringing the question – sausage or pepperoni? – to millions of Americans." - Kurt Kane of Pizza Hut in a statement Monday announcing the end of the marketing bit that promised a free pizza for 30 years to a person who asked President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, “Sausage or pepperoni?” during tomorrow night’s presidential debate. The company received negative backlash on social media sites and were mocked by several pundits, including Stephen Colbert.
