Skip to comments.Bill de Blasio Eats Pizza With a Fork and Knife, Sometimes
Posted on 01/10/2014 6:27:47 PM PST by nickcarraway
The honeymoon is over: Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was seen using utensils to consume a slice during lunch today at Goodfellas Pizza on Staten Island, horrifying onlookers. Worse, he flip-flopped, switching back and forth between fork and hand.
You know who else used a fork to eat New York City pizza? Sarah Palin. And Donald Trump. Together.
The man has some things to learn about this city yet.
Update: Mayor De Blasio blames Italy, as if this isn't America.
The Circus Train is in Town
I wonder what his real last name is.
Warren Wilhelm doesn’t know how to eat a slice? Color me shocked.
That’s not FAIR!!! Somewhere in NYC is a homeless person with no pizza.
Get out, really? I be offended as an Italian ex-NYer for his using an Italian alias for election purposes, but I don’t care what happens there anymore since I split.
You're absolutely right! I mean, look at that picture! Who needs that many slices of pizza! They should be redistributed! From each according to his ability, to each according to his need!
I don;t like DeCastro, but I could give a rats little pellet droppings how he eats a slice of pie...
This article is exactly what is wrong with the media...
Pfft. Big deal. When I’m hungry for a smoking hot piece of pizza, I don’t think anything of using a fork and knife to get it onto my taste buds faster.
I think the guy is a twit for a million other reasons.
Put it in a blender.
No! Sitting in a tub with a large pepperoni Canadian bacon with pineapple is the way to do it.
Don’t care how ya eat it, NY Pizza is the BEST.
Well, only as long as the pizza box is waterproof...
Not to be overly critical but I don't think you quite grasp the underlying humor in this article.
You take it out. Who says there’s water in the tub?
I remember when the media went crazy because when Sarah Palin was in NYC she used a knife and fork to eat pizza.
My gawd, look at those monstrous fattening pizzas! Haven’t they been banned in NY? The rule should be One Person, One Slice, Once A Week. NObody “needs” that much pizza.
People usually don’t like to eat when the camera is on them.
You know, pick it up, and some slops down your shirt or something, click, they take the picture and post it with you sitting there with a glob on your tie.
You've got that right. There was a place around the corner from where my parents lived in Queens. Best pizza I ever had, bar none.
Yikes, watch out for dripping hot tomato sauce and cheese - if you know what I mean.
not necessarily a bad idea for a politician to use a knife and fork when eating in public. Sure they may not look like natural folk but then again there are always camera happy types wanting to capture goofy pictures.
She asked why am I staring at her?
Her back story is that her father and 3 uncles were German army officers who survived WWI and WWII and her father made it to the Russian Caucuses and back.
A margarine tub?
Sounds like a family with a lot of stories to tell
WTH difference does it make? Millions of Italians eat pizza with a knife and fork. Sheesh.
Let him have all the pizza he wants. Since he's a Communist, he should be giving away his money and possessions. Instead, he wants to take away from others. A Communist wants to redistribute wealth, except for his own.
I eat pan pizza that way.
My God what would he do with a Chicago Deepdish if he can’t even hack NY Style Pies-to-put-your-Fingers-In??
A hardcore liberal wants to kill off 95% of the people to "save the earth".
Commie bastard learned to eat pizza in Moscow, Havana, and Managua.
I think he’s George Costanza...
“Dont care how ya eat it, NY Pizza is the BEST.”
Santarpio’s in Boston is right up there with the best of them.
The Jewish delis in NYC are the absolute best,though.
My wife grew up in England and uses a knife and fork to eat pizza. Her father made a trip to the U.S. one time, and went out west with her and her first husband. In a restaurant in some western city, they stopped to have a meal. Her father had never eaten a hamburger before, so he ordered one. He ate it with a knife and fork. My wife said the looks on the faces of the people at nearby tables were priceless. But since he was foreigner, I guess he could be excused.
That must be how hardcore blatant Marxists eat a pizza. So when are they going ask Bill...Oh wait a minute, that’s not even his real name. Marxists love to change their names...When are they going ask Warren Wilhelm how he feels about Marxism being responsible for 100 million deaths in the past 80 years, over 4 times the amount of people the Nazis killed?
A family friend married to a Dutch man was entertaining guests from the Netherlands and served hamburgers. She was not pleases when they all called her a barbarian for eating the hamburger with her hand.
So do I.
Down here in Brazil, if you DON’T eat pizza with a knife and fork, you will get stared at as if you sharted on a birthday cake.
Isn’t it amazing how Marxists always change their names?
Bill de Blasio: Warren Wilhelm
Barrack Hussein Obama: Barry Soetoro
Josef Stalin: Ioseb Besarionis dze Jugashvili
Vladimir Lenin: Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov
Hugo Chávez: Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías
Fidel Castro: Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz
Mao Zedong: Mao Yichang
Ya all got me hankering now. Mmmmm
For a NY-style pizza slice, that is correct.
For a high-end Napoletana style pie, which is readily available in NYC, New Haven, or any major city (except maybe Chicago, but that’s another pizza discussion), knife and fork is acceptable.
That looks more like the latter from the picture.
But if it gives some a reason to slam DeBlasio who didn’t have a clue already that he was terrible, terrible, terrible, then fine.
I’m just glad the media has decided to take a break from the non-stop coverage of Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, the Obamacare disaster, and the awful economy and FINALLY decided to cover something REALLY important — how some guy eats pizza.
They’re just going to ban big slices of non-veggie pizza.
Fidel Castro: Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz
SOP for Hispanic naming conventions. Chavez was Hugo's father's name, Frias his mother's name. Formally, he would be known as Hugo Chavez F.
Formally, Fidel would be Fidel Castro R. A middle name is rarely employed as part of the formal name.
Thank you! I was wondering if this would cue the Seinfeld!
What we really need is the end sequence - I just watched this today - everyone is using forks for candy and Elaine berates them all! LOL
You can only do that twice.
Do the Dutch not know the difference between a barbarian and a cannibal? Anyway, I'm curious about what condiments were used ...
Why does everyone have to apologize for their German connections?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
