Egyptians Are Buying Pizza for Wisconsin ProtestorsS

Looking for a way to show your support for both pizza and the cause of Wisconsin unions, currently engaged in protests against the state's Republican Governor Scott Walker and his anti-union budget bill? Try calling Ian's, a "campus staple" pizza joint in Madison, which has given away thousands of slices of "donated" pizza to protestors, all bought and paid for by people calling in to the restaurant from around the world. No, really, around the world:

The blackboard behind the counter lists the "countries donating" as "Korea, Finland, Egypt, Denmark, Australia, US, Canada, Germany, China, London, Netherlands, Turkey" and has the abbreviations for all 50 states listed below, with donating states circled. As of Sunday afternoon, 38 states had been marked as contributors.

According to their Twitter, Ian's already has as many orders as they can fill tonight—but you might try back tomorrow. We're still trying to find out if there's an equivalent pizza joint you can call in Benghazi, Libya.
