Yay!  More rants by Jon Stewart on politicians and pizza.  Bonus for eating at Goodfella's.

I've eaten pizza with a knife and a fork in Europe (in restaurants) but would never do that in NYC.

I've eaten pizza with a fork and knife (in Jersey, no less) if it's steaming freaking hot just out of the oven.  Especially if it's loaded with toppings and the cheese + toppings are liable to slide off.  I'll usually move to hands by the time I get halfway through / to the crust / the next slice.

Also if I'm doing something where, sorry, I just don't want grease on my hands.  Working through lunch = good example.

He's still an authoritarian, so New Yorkers will get over it.

What's wrong with eating pizza with a fork to begin with?
Is this one of those "no ketchup on hotdogs" things?

That's the best time not to use a fork. Taco that shiat.

Pizza, just like what Obama has probably had for lunch several times since Benghazi?

Yep... If it's a pizza with a thin crust I will too. I'm not going to fold my pizza in half because if I had wanted a farkers calzone I would have ordered one.

And yeah, if im ever forced to go to NY, and I decide to have pizza, I will use a for and knife If that's the best way.

That looks crappier than the worst frozen I've ever had. The crap you New Yorkers brag about... Sheesh. I could get that in 5 dollar hot n ready or from a school cafeteria.

Fwiw I am not against folding, though I also use utensils.

Heh, not a New Yorker, just pointing out the fold method that many New Yorkers consider the 'proper' way to eat their pizza.  Hence the poutrage over deBlasio's knife and fork.

What the hell is up with these pics of round pizzas cut into squares? That is not okay. You have pieces without a crust to hold, you monsters!

Not even one link yet to what may be the greatest Daily Show segment ever?

/he is technically correct, in Naples, the birthplace of pizza, some people eat it with a fork and knife

FTA: "In my ancestral homeland it is more typical to eat with a fork a knife."

1) Ancestral homeland means "where your ancestors are from". You, however, are from New York. And they also burnt people at the stake in your "ancestral homeland". -- Meaningless statement

2) You aren't in your "ancestral homeland", dunce. "When in Rome" and all that. When I eat rice with chopsticks, I have no problem just jamming the sticks into the rice while I reach for my drink; I wouldn't do this in Japan as (from what I've heard) it has certain connotations. I wouldn't do it and then say, "Oh, but back home I do this." -- Stupid statement

Dumbass.

Oh it's more than okay.  You fold 'em in half.

So wish I could get that style of pizza in San Diego.

I wince every time I see somebody hold up a piece of pizza and fold it to better stuff in their pie holes.
Ugh.

You can hold it up flat and take bites, cretins.

Pimparoo: Nothing better than Jews and WASPS telling a guy with the last name "de Blasio" how he's "supposed" to eat Italian food.


So, if I changed my name to "Silverstein" I could claim to be more of an authority of Jewish customs than the average American?

"De Blasio" was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr.

You want Italian? His mother's parents.

And pizza, as it is made in NY (and certainly by Goodfella's), is only slightly more Italian than fortune cookies are Chinese.
