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…
“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.”
Get it? They even explained the joke in the second paragraph, just in case you didn’t get it.
Matt Drudge didn’t:

We need to do better, you guys. This is completely unacceptable.
And no, I’m not funny either.
