Jon Stewart on Chicago vs. New York

Humor 5 Comments

He made the best possible case, but c’mon, New York City pizza is terrible.

Warning: It’s Stewart, so some bleeped-out naughty words.

    Having lived both places, Chicago pizza has way better food. Our thin crust pizza is better than theirs as well not to mention all the other types of burgers, hot dogs, and All-American food that’s better here. Better weather pretty much anywhere else but Chicago does food right.

    I must’ve missed the “Aggregate Pizza Tastiness by City” statistics that you’re privy too, Bob. 😀

    I don’t eat pizza anymore, but when I did, the best I had ever had was from right here in Staten Island at Denino’s. Of course, I only ever tried pizza in Chicago at two different places. It was really good each time, but not the best I have had. It certainly wasn’t terrible.

    I think it would be pretty accurate to say that people tend to like best the food they grew up eating, though. To call the pizza in NYC “terrible”, however, leads me to believe that you had some pretty rotten luck when choosing pizzerias in NYC.

    Or perhaps you just are from the Midwest? Full disclosure, please! 😀

    As for the Stewart clip, LOL at the Diff’rent Stroke reference.

    And Kirzner knows nothing about entrepreneurship.

    This is obviously Bob’s warped sense of humor at work.

      No, you guys are simply wrong. I don’t feel the need to argue; if someone actually thinks NYC pizza is good compared to pizza elsewhere in the United States, I don’t know what to say.

    You can say whatever you want about the pizza, but…. an antenna is an antenna is an antenna.

    I guess it’s just another sign of a decaying society: reality doesn’t matter. Do not account for energy, food, etc in the CPI so inflation is low. Add up Intellectual Property and I don’t remember what else into the GDP so recovery is strong. Include the antenna so it’s the tallest building.

    Live the dream baby, YOLO!!!
