Bill de Blasio Eats Pizza With a Fork and Knife, Sometimes
New York Magazine ^ | 1/10 | Joe Coscarelli

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.

Every New Yorker knows there's only one way to eat a slice of pizza...

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!

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.

No! Sitting in a tub with a large pepperoni Canadian bacon with pineapple is the way to do it.

Not to be overly critical but I don't think you quite grasp the underlying humor in this article.

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.

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.

In 1968 I took out a German woman on a date (I was 17 she was 22) and we ordered pizza and she used a knife and fork.

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.

Thread winner.

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 am surprised that pizza has not been outlawed by the do gooders. If they they had their way, We would be eating tree bark and dandelion sprouts.

A hardcore liberal wants to kill off 95% of the people to "save the earth".

Uh,uh.

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.

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.

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.

eating the hamburger with her hand.

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 ...
