John Schnatter, who founded Papa John's, is suing the company after he resigned as chairman. He left after he reportedly used the N-word on a company call. No matter how the lawsuit shakes out, people can't stop joking about the original Papa John.
I picture this in real life because this is what it looks like in my mind! LOL Apparently I was not the only one with the jokes. Twitter is undefeated when it comes to situations like this!
