Bloomberg Refused Second Slice of Pizza at Local Restaurant



New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was denied a second slice of pizza today at an Italian eatery in Brooklyn.

The owners of Collegno's Pizzeria say they refused to serve him more than one piece to protest Bloomberg's proposed soda ban,which would limit the portions of soda sold in the city.

Bloomberg was having an informal working lunch with city comptroller John Liu at the time and was enraged by the embarrassing prohibition. The owners would not relent, however, and the pair were forced to decamp to another restaurant to finish their meal.

Witnesses say the situation unfolded when as the two were looking over budget documents, they realized they needed more food than originally ordered.

"Hey, could I get another pepperoni over here?" Bloomberg asked owner Antonio Benito.

"I'm sorry sir," he replied, "we can't do that. You've reached your personal slice limit."

That's LOL!

When I saw the title of this post....

I was saying "Please let is be true." as I clicked the link. Oh well. Maybe a business owner in NYC will see it and get some ideas. It would have been great publicity for the pizza shop...if they could survive the city licensing and inspections afterward.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

is satire. Surely the pizza place would have already had a mafia style accident or fire by now.

Look at some of the headlines on this site.

Consider me fooled. I actually saw the article at EPJ but pasted EPJ's source. That's embarrassing. Sorry about that everyone.

It's a good read though!

Maybe you can edit the title and add (satire)

This needs to be labeled as satirical

The daily currant is a yellow journalism site. It looks legit but it openly admits to being satirical.

Sorry to burst your bubble but it's satire :-(

I tried to look up that pizzeria but couldn't find it

I want to go there and thank the owners and then buy pizza to help support their business. I encourage everyone who is in the area to do the same.


love it

That's priceless! Way to go
