The British can be snobs sometimes. Either way, he means a NY pizzeria slice, not pizza itself. So good on him or something, but what took so long.

Pizza.
New York style, with pepperoni.
Hot.

I really don't see why it was a controversy. It wouldn't be very successful as folks would just buy more drinks to get the same amount, or refill them at a freestyle machine, but it wasn't the end of 'Murican freedoms.

Can anyone from New York explain why it was such a big deal?

Not boiled subby, deep fried.  Our field service guys used to do 30 day rotations on the Atlantic coast of Scotland.  They had two choices for dinner the pub or the fish and chip shop.  One day the fish and chip shop had pizza so they went for it.  They took a frozen pizza out of the box and dropped it into the hot fish oil.

Because telling people how to live has been a growing New York City government problem for the past 15 years or so, and Americans have a serious problem with the government telling them how to live and spend their own money

Man, I gotta check out Chip Shop. I love English food. I know that makes me weird, but meat pies are awesome.

I wonder if he's been to Myers of Keswick on Hudson St. British grocery, has lots of stuff like Walker's crisps, Jaffa cakes, the usual British junk food and pies (but no jammie dodgers, sigh). Though lots of the upscale Korean delis around midtown have started stocking up on British candies. Even 7-11 carries stuff like Yorkie now.

Have you seen the state of mass transit, the roads, crime? I guess people don't want an out of touch billionaire to legislate what they consume. New yorkers are also the most hypocritical farks on the planet though.

I think since I heard his inexplicably British character make a butt-sex reference on American Dad, that I realized Patrick Stewart no longer gives a damn what people think.

I'm OK with this.

I can understand that, but is that what was happening here? A consumer could still choose to buy two sodas, or buy a refill, for the same amount. No lifestyle changes were really occurring beyond selling a wonkily large container of beverage. Not that I can't see why folks dislike the bill, the whole thing seems poorly thought out and gimmicky. It just also seems like such a ~yawn~ issue that It boggles me that people reacted so strongly to it.

Before we get into the Chicago vs. NY debate, lets all agree that both are better than any type of "British" Pizza.

Well, this is after years and years of things like smoking bans, gun bans, strip club bans, adult store bans, trans fat bans, etc etc.  Basically, it's a resistance to the slippery slope.  People may have grumbled with the more risque stuff being banned in city limits, but now they're getting deeper and deeper into the every day person and Bloomberg(and his predecessors) have not indicated that there is any end in sight.  You remember San Angeles in Demolition Man, right?

If you're in the Puget Sound area, Three Lions Pub in Redmond is nice - English style pub, stunning meat pies.

I live in Brooklyn so if this law passed I would have been affected by it. In theory the law wasn't so bad. America wastes a lot of money on preventable health problems. The huge amount of soda we drink is part of that. Limiting the amount of soda a person could drink at one sitting to 16oz would in theory increase the health of the populace, especially children. This law wouldn't have done that. There are many restaurants that offer free refills. You can always buy two sodas instead of one. What this law would have done is inconvenience everyone while accomplishing nothing. You could no longer buy a pizza for four and have it delivered with a two liter bottle of Coke. You could no longer buy a large drink and share it with a friend at the theater. No one wants too much government legislature to accomplish too little. The law needed to be better written. Instead of passing a law they could also have tried to educate the people about the harm of drinking too much soda. Or they could have passed a law preventing the sale of soda with Fructose sugar instead of Sucrose sugar. A lot of the problems with high sugar foods stem from the fact that they typically use cheaper and unhealthier Fructose sugar.

You know that to be false though.

A better statement would be "People who live in Chicago know where the GOOD deep dish places are, and they are not the usual 'names' everyone throws out there" (other than maybe Giordano's).  I wish I remembered a place that was I think in Highland Park when I lived in Highwood, was a great tasting pizza.

Also, many in Chicago usually get "Chicago Style Thin Crust" and not deep dish.   Which, going with that comparison, is better than NY style.  So, discounting the whole "your casserole sucks" argument, Chicago still wins.

If so, then his Twitter account was hacked. I follow him, and this came off of his feed. So I guess now we wait for the retraction?

Other possibility is that he is lying. And if you are accusing the captain of the Starship Enterprise, not to mention Professor X, a liar then I shall have to ask you to step outside!
