Help Wanted?

Domino’s Pizza Japan has advertised a one-hour job paying 2.5 million yen (about $30,000).  The job will go to anyone 18 years and older who comes up with the best way to celebrate the pizza chain's 25 years of operation in Japan and then implement that idea on the date of the anniversary. It's nice work if you can get it, the average hourly wage for part-time workers in Japan is around 1,000 yen (less than $10 if you simply convert it on the basis of the current foreign exchange ratio).

In a related story, French news agency, Agence France-Presse, reports that the Japanese government is ordering its embassies to reduce their bloated wine cellars, "including almost 7,900 bottles at one European mission alone."

...So much wine, so little time.
