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.”
Stop and Tisk
Mayor Bloomberg, not accustomed to being challenged, assumed that the owner was joking.
“OK, that’s funny,” he remarked, “because of the soda thing … No come on. I’m not kidding. I haven’t eaten all morning, just send over another pepperoni.”
“I’m sorry sir. We’re serious,” Benito insisted. “We’ve decided that eating more than one piece isn’t healthy for you, and so we’re forbidding you from doing it.”
“Look jackass,” Bloomberg retorted, his anger boiling, “I f#@king skipped breakfast this morning just so I could eat four slices of your pizza. Don’t be a schmuck, just get back to the kitchen and bring out some f#@king pizza, okay.”
“I’m sorry sir, there’s nothing I can do,” the owner repeated. “Maybe you could go to several restaurants and get one slice at each. At least that way you’re walking. You know, burning calories.”
Witnesses say a fuming Bloomberg and a bemused Liu did indeed walk down the street to a rival pizzeria , ordered another slice and finished their meeting.
New York’s so-called “soda ban” would have limited the size of sweetened beverages served in restaurants to 16 oz (0.5 liters). The plan, backed by Mayor Bloomberg, is currently being held up by a U.S. district court.
Bloomberg has been the mayor of New York City since 2002. Theretofore he was the CEO of Bloomberg LP, the world’s leading financial data firm. His personal fortune is estimated at around $27 billion.

So how does it feel Bloomberg?. Watch, he’ll get back at them some way. Maybe he’ll limit how many pies they can sell in a day. Once his term is up, good riddance, I hope we’ve seen the last of him.
Damn. Why didn’t the Italian guy serve him a slice of “roundup” pizza, soaked in roundup?
LOL! Would serv’em right! 🙂
LOL!! You go New York!!

That wormy filth Bloomberg will just send an army of bureaucrats to screw this guy’s day up. There will be spot fire inspectors, code enforcement, health department and right on down the list, sent to this man’s establishment. It is for this fact that I salute this restaurant owner not only once, but several times for the shit storm he’s going to have to deal with over this.
I laughed through this entire article wishing I could’ve been present to witness this encounter. That scumbag Bloomberg should get treated like this daily. One can hope.
Yep, I fell for it. Only because I so badly wanted it to be true. Maybe someday soon, a real restaurant owner will do this.
I think this was satire, but I sure do wish it would’ve been true. I would love to see the “little” guy stick it in the face of “Mr. Big Bucks.” This is what needs to happen though across the US-start dishing out the same crap to them-a taste of their own medicine.
O.K. you busted me. I was waiting to see who would catch on first. That was the reason for the 4 smiley faces below the first 4 comments.
Heh, heh, heh. 🙂
this was satire, but most believe it because they dont check links..not a good thing to do for a truth website.. yet again, what a waste of time, and of my time. But I get censored anyway…I am just documenting all of this for a video I am making.
After seeing almost nothing but bad news day after day, many of us tend to appreciate a little humor occasionally, or what I like to call comic relief. We all need a break from this insanity now and then.
Apparently, you lack a sense of humor.

You see, we here at From the Trenches are regular folk and not beyond throwing a joke into the conversation as we endeavor to correct the deplorable situation stupid mother f#@kers like you have created via your stupid interpretations and stupid decisions.
In short, get gone, retard.
So, andrew, just why are you makeing a video and for who? DHS maybe? I think we can see that you are nothing more than a common trouble maker. Get a life andrew and while you are getting a life, Go Screw Yourself you busybody! Yea, I bet you are just documenting.
The revolution has officially began. The pizza slice incident will be in text books.
