Pizza blob oozes dumpster in Louisiana after Hurricane Ida

This is dough nuts!

A Domino’s Pizza in Louisiana dumped some dough in a trash container to prepare for the onslaught of Hurricane Ida last week — only to have the massive yeast concoction expand like something out of the 1950s horror flick “The Blob.”

The dough bubbled up over the sides of the large metal dumpster in the town of hard-hit Covington as temperatures remained in the 90s, according to a Facebook posting with snapshots of the mushy mess.

“Back in Covington, dominos threw all of their dough in the dumpster, and now it’s growing into a giant, unstoppable blob,’’ Nicole Amstutz wrote Wednesday above a photo of the ever-expanding dough.

She added over the weekend, “Saturday morning update: it’s still there (picture 2), but the dough inside fell and now there are boxes on top. Dough on ground is squishy.”

Amstutz later quipped to Nola.com of her posts, “I’m really just happy it’s making so many people laugh at such a stressful time.”

The state was slammed by Ida, which killed at least 13 people while wreaking havoc on towns such as Covington.

More than a half-million customers are still without power in Louisiana — which faced the threat of new flash flooding Monday that only threatened to exacerbate the situation, weather experts told Reuters.
