Bloomberg Refused Second Slice of Pizza at Local Restaurant

May 02, 2013

doombergNew 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 fucking 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 fucking 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.

    Your stories might be funnier (and more people might share them!) if the writers didn’t always have to cuss so much! 🙂

  • Satire? Really? Let us know that before we get so excited.

  • headlineclicker

    I freaking love it. This story made my decade.

  • hahha suck it nanny bloomberg

  • SlimJim

    Absolutely made my day.

  • it wasn’t the writters cussing!! it was the writters QUOTING what Bloomberg said. ughh Idiot!!

  • I freaking love that owner!!

  • this man is a hero, now our job is to make sure that every restaurant be told to do the same thing when this man shows up in their restaurant, and when they report that they did, we will show up and support them.

    And maybe, restaurants will stop serving him alcohol, or us smaller glasses, because alcohol is really full of empty calories, more so than even the soda.

  • justathought22

    Look jackass,” Bloomberg retorted, his anger boiling, “I fucking 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 fucking pizza, okay.”

    That just says it all right here. What a disgusting baffoon he is to talk to someone that way! I would have just asked him to leave at that point. He really does think a lot of himself doesn’t he? Jackass!!!!

  • Steve

    If this is true, it’s awesome!

  • I want a link to the restaurant! or an address or website, ANYTHING! I want to thank them!!!

  • l would travel to NY just to shake the owners hand of that pizza parlor … Two thumbs up for a point well made…

  • deadsit

    Sucks when the laws you pass effect you as well. LOL

  • Jean Pennie

    This is perhaps the best thing I have ever read. I will make sure to make a trip to NY to patronize Collegno’s Pizzeria. Well done!

  • CAN NOT get the grin off my face!! I would so patronize this restaurant if I lived in New York!! Kudos to Collegno’s Pizzeria!!

  • It’s not fair to get people so happy about a fake story.

  • Charlie’

    They are SO Tolerant, aren’t they.
    Can make Laws against Citizens, but when a citizen stands up to the bully – he acts like an infant Chicago Thug.

  • Craig Brockman

    Satire….don’t you people read the content of a blog before commenting?

  • YAY!! Can I get a franchise?

  • Shannon

    Wait, who is the idiot? This is satirical, not real life. “ughh!” And they were right…the cursing should have been the first hint that this wasn’t true. Its not realistic in the least.

  • Bill Gilbow

    That is downright awesome. I love politicians and their “do as I say not as I do” mentality being shoved back in their face.

  • If everything reported is true, then the mayor has a filthy mouth & a temper; both are not very healthy for him. Better change that b4 limiting sweetened drink!

  • magnifico

  • LMAO I bow to the master of the pizza joint.

  • just because you have money does not mean you have a brain… what an idiot… glad I never voted for him!!!!!!!

  • LibertyLooms

    National Hero!

  • Jaw-juh

    I love the Daily Currant. Great and funny satire on both sides of the aisle.

  • dan

    New Yorkers need to get rid of Bloomberg no matter what it takes if u know what i mean.

  • OverloardsMaster

    You NYC people that find Bloomberg’s arrogance as appalling and disgusting as many of the rest of us do —

    one – demanding a business owner making a decision about what happens in his own establishment do otherwise just because of who he is – self-righteousness

    two – calling the owner names/demanding he “get back in the kitchen” … the condescending a$$ … and

    three – obviously having one standard for himself and another for the rest of you – hypocrisy —

    if you don’t take as much of your pizza business and money into this owner’s place of business and show support by buying his products then there is no hope for you at all.

  • mac

    I hope you will continue to monitor this restaurant I’ll bet you they have problems with the city very soon.
    Health Inspector
    Food Licence….ect…

  • Carol

    It would be sweet if there was solidarity amongst all restaurants in NY and NO ONE would serve Bloomberg. The icing on the cake would be them serving Liu in front of him! Kudos to this owner!!

  • Doree, this is satire like the Onion only not as funny. This did not happen, get it? Look at some of their other headlines and get a clue, girl.

  • This is wonderful!!! Don’t mess with Italians!

  • Hello folks, this is satire, not real. Take a look at some of their other headlines. Made me laugh, tho!

  • mphilm

    but hopefully they will be consistent and only give you one piece of pizza.

  • What would have been better was if the owner had called the cops for an “out of control customer.”

  • The mayor will now show what a Schmuck he is by retaliating against this restaurant using Code Enforcement,The Health Dept., etc… I hope the locals watch out for this Restaurant owner ,who had the GUTS to stand up to someone , who because he is rich,thinks HE IS HIGHER THAN THE LAW!!!!!!Please locals. Help this Hero out!!!!!

  • Is this for real? LMAO either way

  • Michae Cannon

    I <3 you owners of Collegno's Pizzeria!!!!!!!! If I'm ever in Brooklyn I'm goin in for slices and to shake your hand(s)!!!

  • Food Network just needs to cancel all of their shows and just follow Antonio Benito around 24/7!! God bless you sir!! That’s awesome!!

  • Alon Anava

    thank god some stuck up to this schmuck…..

  • LMAO those Nannies need to watch their calories! I am proud of this restaurant owner!


  • I think if i am in New York City, I will have to stop by this man’s place and have a slice or two….just to support him. Rock on Antonio Benito


    I love it!!!

  • Bobby C

    Sounds like a fake story.

    I believe this happened in Brooklyn, not Chicago. And Go Bulls, while we’re at it.

  • Patrick J Oser

    Bloomberg is a fucking schmuck!

  • Bobby C

    I didn’t know it was fake until I googled the daily currant. I knew it was too good to be true.

  • It’s funny, people, but it’s not true. Just look at the other stories here.

  • ThatGuyPosting

    They’re not real, they don’t exist, this story never happened, this is a satire website…

  • HeywoodJablowme2

    Of course its satire no one in NY has the balls to stand up to anyone, even a half-pint would-be dictator.


  • Slice of heaven

    Either way you slice it the owners got their point across to this feckless liberal. Well done and Bravo. Be sure that all of us bring our business to these guys!

  • ThatGuyPosting

    None of it is true, this is a satire site, it’s all false…

  • thatguy

    Bloomberg is a disgrace, to think he can talk to people like that.

  • I believe this didn’t happen at all since it’s Satire.

  • ThatGuyPosting

    Get off the internet. This is satire article.

  • It’s a joke…

  • It’s not — this is a Satire website..

  • ThatGuyPosting

    ….you – you do know this is a satire article, right? As in it’s fiction? That none of it actually happened?

  • Siflan

    Life gets no better than this! LMFAO

  • and Bloomberg is part of the NWO

  • Writers*

  • It is.

  • OMG! I wonder if he kisses his momma with that dirty mouth????

  • Oso


  • ThatGuyPosting

    ….you – you do know this is a satire article, right? As in it’s fiction?

  • Someone’s a little whiney aren’t they? It happened. It’s not just on this website. It’s on several other news websites.

  • What was the name of the resteraunt again? If I ever make it to New York, this would be the ‘only’ place I would eat.

  • lmfao This is just too awesome! I want to buy those guys some beer. Don’t cuss someone out in their own restaurant thinking you’re going to get what you want all because you’re a politician. Kudos to them for putting him in his place.

  • I love Benito he made my day and the dialog proves Bloomberg is an arrogant SOB

  • Cal Brabandt

    That’s one of the most heart-warming news bits I’ve read online in a

    long time. I love the blow-by-blow account of Bloomberg’s anger! It is

    all one needs to read to understand what’s wrong with a state-based

    society and Boomberg and his ilk (politicians) who think “laws are for

    thee but not for me!”

    I’m also pleased to see there are still a few old-school New Yorkers

    left who would rather not be ruled by others who think they know what’s best for them.

  • EVERYONE GO AND EAT At th At PIZZERIA. pizzaman hero

  • Civil Disobedience at it’s finest!

  • Rynosaur

    Yes!!!!!!!!!!! I hate Bloomberg!

  • Frank

    What’s worst than Bloomberg? A sudo-news website reporting fiction only to disappoint the people in the end.


  • blackhawk556

    I wish I was in new York so that I could go to this place and support this business. Great job!!

  • ROCK ON! you guys are my personal hero’s!

  • Don

    Only about 1% of the people below know that this is not an actual news story. It really makes me want to just run into the streets and slap every 99 out of 100 people I see.

  • Joe

    With a mouth like that I would have thrown the idiot (Bloomberg) out of my restaurant.

  • Should have charged him a table tax, a chair tax, an atmosphere tax, and an asshole tax.

  • ML3D

    Really? Which news websites? Link please?

  • ML3D

    This business doesn’t exist, because this article is satire. The entire site is satire.

  • JannyMae

    This isn’t a news website. It’s a satire site. “The global satirical newspaper of record.” You’re not too bright, are you?

  • ML3D

    He isn’t on google because he doesn’t exist because this site is exclusively satirical AKA not real.

  • Do you think even Bloomie has enough money to pay an asshole tax?

  • ML3D

    …except it didn’t actually happen.

  • This is by far the best story I’ve read in such a long time!

  • That may be so, but its STILL funny.

  • FartAtTheMoon


  • lg

    Love it! Nice language for a public official.

  • ML3D


    I thought that people would get that, considering the fact that The Currant is exclusively satirical – even if one didn’t know that, the other articles on the site should raise an eyebrow. Made me laugh, but not true. Never happened. This pizza place does not exist, nor does Antonio Benito.

  • Good the owners. He needed a taste of his own Bull.

  • Jerry Smith

    Owner may get some payback sadly as this idiot Mayor has a big head

  • That is just ignorant BS

  • love that story bet he hates it blowing up in his face he thinks he can dictate to everyone what is best the table just got turned on him


  • 1Max_Wedge1

    Suck it, Bloomberg!!!!!!!!!

  • no you werent, George Bush did it…

  • Mr. Guy, answering each and everyone responding to this article, though it be satire, is a waste of time. Even though it’s fake, many many people believe it COULD happen so in my book, that says a truckload about the mayor and the hundreds of thousands around the country who are opposed to everything he stands for. The best fiction has many elements of truth in it.

  • ThatGuyPosting

    Don’t feed the troll.

  • Hes not God after all imagine that

  • Hahahah! The owner should have called the next restaurant and told them to tell him he’s already had a slice of pizza and they can’t serve him and so on and so on. would have been hilarious.

  • fdup2

    Good for them…

  • anywoman

    Probably ought to check this out, but the temptation to write “what goes around comes around” is way too powerful!!

    Bravo sir – you are an American patriot!!

  • Brian Davids

    It’s obviously a fake story, but still funny.

  • Bart

    The address is 123 Fake St…

  • ThatGuyPosting

    Ms. Tomlin, perhaps it is, but all ignorance needs to succeed is for knowledgeable people to do nothing.

    Honestly, most people around the country know essentially nothing about the mayor, the soda regulation in particular, or his policies in general. Their opinions aren’t exactly worth much. So the fact that they believe it could have happened, based on the snippets they’ve heard about from the media, is just rather sad – and says much more about them than about the mayor.

  • FartAtTheMoon

    That’s right, Bloomberg should not be fed.

  • Kbeth

    OMG best story ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this owner, and what a tool Bloomberg is for speaking to him like that!!

  • kenny1801

    F**K BLOOMTURD!!!!

  • The restaurant owner should have said if you start to tackle GMO’s as well then you can have ten pizza’s

  • ra44mr2

    That right there made my whole day!!

  • Too bad that was not caught on video if it’s true..

  • ra44mr2

    I do so wish this was true.

  • This is the BEST STORY EVER!

  • John

    Isn’t Bloomberg Jewish? If he is why is eating pepperoni in the first place? I don’t think there is “Kosher Pepperoni” is there? I think this is great, shows the people of New York have some balls.

  • Paul

    That was awesome. Hopefully I’ll be in New York at the end of the month need to eat at your restaurant for sure now!

  • gary

    I love it someone stood up to the tyrant an dhe didn’t like it

    Well written, love the quotes from both parties. This could be of so true. My hat is off to the author of this article!

  • John

    Oh, I forgot this is a satire site! As they say now, “my bad”,, I should have known this wasn’t real, we didn’t hear a story about a pizzeria owner being thrown in prison for mouthing off to Lord Bloomberg .

  • Satire Lover

    I don’t what is funnier, the fake article or the comments from the folks who believe it is real

  • Had me going there.

    For people with swallowing problems that need to induce esophageal pressure, a carbonated beverage such as Coca-Cola is the ticket. It is more potent that a carbonated water. Achalasia is tough and when you are faced with packing on some calories because of sipping coke to get food through the LES, then you choose coke vs. a drip at the hospital. Besides you lose weight anyway with swallowing problems and any Nurse will tell you… drink and eat what you can.

  • And those sites link back here. The Daily Currant is satire. I can’t believe people don’t realize that.

  • tedmts

    I will stop there and have a slice just because of that

  • Meowth

    The onion really wins though, gotta have somewhat realistic fake quotes

  • MoreEntitlementsPlease

    Great story. If it’s true then this guy is a real patriot.

  • ShyDog

    ROFLMAO…..Perfect. Wish I lived in NY temporarily, I’d have to go to that restaurant and have four slices of their pizza. Pity Bloomberg resorted to foul language…..suppose he could have just bought the place and served himself all he wanted…and plenty to drink too.

  • Evangelos Charalambou

    He is just as bad as is his Democratic buddy in Washington, D.C. They think that they can tell people what to eat, drink or whatever whim they feel liking enacting upon us. THIS IS NOT RUSSIA, OR IRAN OR IRAQ!!!!!!!! Our forefathers fought for our rights of freedom!!!. The dumbasses who call themselves Democratic need to read the U.S. Constitution again and again as well as the Amendments. Remember folks, “WE THE PEOPLE”. Get the hint.

  • It’s satire…..

  • CC

    Lol, that is priceless!!! Yay for Antonio!!!

  • you realize this is a satire site right?

  • ROFLMAO, WAY TO GO Benito.

  • kas_wolf

    I would totally buy ONLY from this pizzeria if I lived in New York.

  • Patrick Grieshammer

    Barry it’s a satirical news magazine. Google the Daily Currant. This never happened.

  • Patrick Grieshammer

    Rachel, it’s a fake story published in a satirical e-zine. Much like the Onion.

  • Karma is a great thing

  • Patrick Grieshammer

    I’m enjoying all the stupid comments made about a fake story at a phony pizza place by a satirical e-zine.


  • Angry Gram

    A dam. Democrat turned Rino, yup sounds just like “Ridemocratno” if there is anything worse than a democrat would have to be this hybrid mix! I do not feel sorry for New York City they have voted him in 3 times for crying out loud, (I could say this the way Bloomberg did but I am a lady) Give me a freakin brake! Considering the main subject of this story I prefer to think this DID happen, the article sure made my day!

  • Ionus

    Ha. Which “news” sites are reporting this? It’s a joke, and it’s a damn funny one, but it’s still a joke. Anyone else running this “story” is just copying it from here.

  • Funny idea here. Although with the soda ban, you could get a second drink if you wanted. And a third, fourth, fifth, sixth…..

  • Hey Mr Bloomberg you “Hypocrite”
    You’re not setting a very good example you silly boy,
    eating all that unhealthy food and cursing in a public place like that.

  • God bless Benito. This is a great news story. Bloomers finally got a dose of his own medicine. Sounds like he didn’t like it. If I ever get to NYC again, I’ll defiantly look up Collegno’s for a meal.

  • It’s a joke. You’re an idiot.

  • So besides being a control freak, Bloomberg is also an asshole AND a pottymouth!

  • Heartland Patriot

    Those pizza guys should watch their backs…King Bloomberg will have health inspectors combing the place with a fine-tooth comb, and they’ll end up shut down over some tiny, or perhaps even perceived, violation if they aren’t careful. (Yes, I know this site is bogus, just sayin’)

  • Really? You really didn’t get that this is satire?

  • The non-existent restaurant in this obvious piece of satire is in Brooklyn.

  • It’s a joke and you’re an idiot.

  • It’s a joke.

  • Still a joke.

  • Actually, it shows that you’re not very bright for falling for this obvious joke.

  • samcakes

    I also was fooled because honestly, this is how Bloomberg reacts when challenged. He is utterly astonished when anyone checks him. The give away is that he despises John Liu because Liu is a good Comptroller and stops Bloomberg from firing perfectly good teachers for budget cuts while simultaneously trying to hire others from outside the union. This SHOULD happen to Bloomberg. It would be poetic justice and illustrates the point quite well. Too good to be true…..

  • Worth 27 billion…… So thats how he became the mayor of New York.

  • Bloomberg’s probably not enough of an idiot to recognize this as a joke. You, on the other hand….

  • It doesn’t exist…you really didn’t get that this is a joke?

  • david semick

    Let’s all hear it for the backbone of American success, the small business owner.

  • No way this is true … wish it were, but we all know its not.

  • What I love is the number of people who are stupid enough not to get that this is a joke.

  • It’s called “This is Satire and You’re an Idiot.”

  • goobersmooch

    fake or not this is one funny story!

  • Duh….

  • Let us know when you find the fictitious restaurant in the obviously satirical article.

  • samcakes

    The fact that many of us fell for this speaks volumes. There are numerous tales of how Bloomberg reacts when questioned. Bill. He freaked the heck out when a reporter asked him where he was during that huge blizzard (the Bahamas) and he thought that was out of bounds. Thou shalt not question the dictator. He’s entitled to have a temper but it would be more palatable if he wasn’t in everyone’s business so insidiously.

  • It’s satire and you’re not very bright.

  • It’s a joke.

  • Now damit, did it happen or didn’t it?

  • FedUpLibBS

    That’s the problem with Liberals and Satire … it’s too hard to tell where Reality Ends and the SATIRE BEGINS!!

  • Good luck finding the fake restaurant.

  • No see, the city is smart enough to recognize an obvious joke when they see one.

  • I am heading over to this pizzeria to give them business and shake this mans hand- BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I am laughing my butt off! How does he like being told what to do? Not very much! Tsk, tsk! I wonder, does he kiss his mother with that filthy mouth? Ha ha, funny even if it is fake.

  • love it love it love it…..right inna ya face Blumberg….

  • You wanna buy a bridge?

  • But it separates us smart people from you and the other dumb people.

  • Bon Jour!

  • nateone

    So..this is fake.

  • I Love It! I am glad that the pizza owners stood their ground and didn’t give in to the Billionaire’s demands. How does he like it now? LOL 🙂

  • I LITERALLY LOL’ed on this one!

  • Fake, but noteworthy. Bloomberg might be a control freak jackass, but no mayor of New York would talk to constituents in that way in public. C’mon. Unless it’s true and word of mouth perverted it into this junior high level story.

  • Jessica

    Haha I hope that made him realize what he’s doing and being mayor he should talk with such vulgarity! Just saying

  • Good. Someone should stick it that guy. Must not be getting big enough kickbacks from Coke and Pepsi, so he’s just hitting them back until they pay up anyway.

  • I would love to shake Antonio Benito’s hand and let him know that I LOVE what he did/said. People like Bloomberg are totally out of control with their own “power” and need to back off!!! Love it, love it, love it.

  • Stoprunning


  • Zack

    The comments on this site make me realize how stupid a majority of Americans really are.

  • scott

    after the comment, I would have served it on his lap…

  • You should feel like an idiot.

  • Ladies and Gentlemen, THIS is how you effect change. You have to be audacious, forward, and CALM. You have to be prepared for and angry reaction and keep your cool. And you have to SHOW the people making policy that what they’re doing is WRONG! Follow this example! BE PROACTIVE!! YESSSS!!!

  • SamR

    Um…this isn’t a real story. Its satire.

    Didn’t reading the “quote” in which Bloomberg is dropping f-bombs in public clue you in to that?

  • If you fell for this obvious joke, you’re not bright enough to find NYC.

  • This is obviously satire and you’re obviously not very bright. Just saying.

  • How do you like being dumb enough to fall for this obvious joke?

  • I know, right!!! LOL

  • It’s going to be hard to find since the place doesn’t exist and this is obviously a joke.

  • Copy the name of the restaurant. Open Google. Slap yourself in the head.

  • Now that’s the funniest and most politically logical thing I’ve read all day!


  • …and the reason America is so screwed up – people dumb enough to buy this go out and vote.

  • perfectlyreasonabletoo

    “Supreme Court May Limit Gay Marriage to Attractive Lesbians” in the sidebar didn’t do it for you?

  • It’s a joke.

  • I will never enter New York State, but if I were there, I’d choose this Pizza place before any other restaurant.

  • nice 🙂

  • and you’re dumb enough not to realize that this is a joke.

  • happyscrapper

    That took guts. God bless them! Bloomberg got a taste of his own stupid policies and he didn’t like it one bit. That is the problem with too big for your britches politicians. Rules apply to everyone EXCEPT them! So glad that Benito stuck to his guns (pardon the pun).

  • Tracy Hazenstab

    Wow…he actually used that language in a public place! Isn’t that classy! Should of had his dose of dish soap to go along with that slice of pizza.

  • Thats great! I love it!

  • and then slap yourself in the head while repeating “idiot” when you realize that this is a joke.

  • This man is my hero!!!! Next time I’m in NYC I’m finding this restaurant!

  • Curious – how dumb does one have to be to not recognize this as a joke?

  • sprdthewrd

    I love it. Hope the Mayor leaves this guy alone. Bloomass is a jerk. This Liu has some MEATBALLS.

  • frcwby

    There is no Collego’s Pizzaria in Brooklyn,

  • Poor Idiot!

  • If you didn’t get that this is a joke, please never vote again.

  • joann

    WooHoo! Way to go! I hope everyone in there cheered!

  • Live by the caloric intake limitation, die by the caloric intake limitation.

  • happyscrapper

    Why is that, Zack? Do you not agree with the Pizza guy? Do you think Bloomberg is right to limit what people eat? If so, what gives him that right? I really want to know. Because, actually, he DOESN’T have the right to tell us what we can and can’t eat or drink. Period.

  • PistolPeterson


  • This is the best thing I have read in ages!!!!

  • If you’re dumb enough to have fallen for this, please never vote again.

  • And you have to be smart enough to recognize an obvious joke when you see one.

  • damifinoone

    Good for that owner. Someone needs to stand up to the buffoon.

  • JesseKaellis

    All he had to do was buy the guy out. He probably carries 200,000 grand on him. Or conversely he could jump over the counter and kill the guy. He would get off just the same way OJ got off. By hiring the best lawyers.

  • Hope

    Of course, if anyone sees this and knows it’s fake, they may just try it in their own establishments. Bloomberg better watch where he eats from now on 🙂

  • Gstephens

    Had it been Chicago and Rahm E., the language would have been fully accepted and even expected.

  • SturJen

    You know how I know the story is not true? There’s not 50 armed guards protecting Nanny Bloomberg.

  • sandra kathryn

    Well said, Trish!

  • Snead Hearn

    At least he didn’t have to say “Do you know who I am?”

  • “Look jackass,” Bloomberg retorted, his anger boiling, “I fucking 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 fucking pizza, okay.” What a typical response from a Hypocrite such as Bloomberg

  • LOL that’s funny!

  • dolphin lover

    Good for the owner of the pizzaria!!!! Just because he is the mayor (and doing a poor job) does not give the right to dictate how much of anything someone eats or drinks! I personally do not drink soda any more…just to sweet for me…but….that is my own personal decision!

  • Yes, on the planet Stupid where the inhabitants don’t recognize an obvious joke, he actually used that language.

  • And obvious satire is obviously satire except to dumb people.

  • This just made my day!! So funny, i cant stop laughing

  • No – because this is a fake story, it’s so obvious that it’s a fake story and only an idiot would believe that it’s true.

  • Love it when the tables are turned on a Socialist!! Give them an inch, they’ll take 2 liters!!

  • Duh – it’s a joke.

  • Me

    What a shame the didn’t have that recorded!! That would have been in “INCREDIBLE” sound bite for Saturday Night Live. (and anyone else wanting to hit the ground running with it).

  • and what a typical “not getting an obvious joke” from an idiot such as you.

  • RNinNC

    OMG, how many times am I gonna fall for these Daily Currant stories?!?!?? These guys are awesome with their satire!!! I want them to be true SOOO badly…

  • Good luck with that.

  • Do you vote with that brain?

  • If you were smarter, it wouldn’t be such a problem.

  • Quint Hippe

    you did it troll

  • Noelle

    BUha ha ha ha ha! So funny! Wonder if they paid the bill? People had better get wise to these A$$ munches! I hope the people in the restraint applauded the owner while Bloomberg was walking out!

  • Yes, it speaks volume about how not very bright you and the others are.

  • Noelle

    Sorry I meant Restaurant!

  • That’s great stuff.
    Bloomberg is an asshole.
    Watch this video about it.
    …Empire State of Meh.

  • I don’t know if this is true or not, but it’s priceless!

  • and how dumb you are for not getting the joke.

  • Good luck.

  • stvjas

    alright with the its a joke s*** we are having fun so STFU

  • How dumb does one have to be to not get that this is a joke?

  • Where is the Pizza place?
    I’m going there to shake the owners hand – GOOD FOR HIM !!!

  • This would make a great real life article. Terrible satire, though. It wasn’t funny, it just made me disappointed that noone actually stood up to King Bloomberg. I did think it was odd he’d be out on the street eating pizza. I mean, he usually prefers to eat the poor. He especially likes impoverished latinos, I hear.

  • Guest

    Tyrant Bloomberg must not like it when he is treated the same way he treats his subjects.

  • Guest

    everyone should go to that pizza place .. give them the business, they better be careful tho, I bet Monday health inspectors will be there to do a fake inspection and close them down

  • suburban farmer

    I wish everyone would quit insisting this is satire. Wouldn’t it be so much more fun to encourage people to believe it’s true?

  • Mr. Benito has earned the ultimate rock star status in my book!!! Most uplifting and motivating thing I’ve seen all week …. thank you, sir!!

  • Al Franke

    The mayor should be embarrassed with the language he resorted to.. It just goes to show what I have said all along, Liberals believe “Don’t do as I do do as I tell you”” Because I know best.for you..!! I feel sorry for the Owner The Health Dept will be living with him I’m sure..!!

  • More…more…we want more!!!!!!

  • glendaleburbank

    Hurray for the Collegno’s!! Hope they do a booming business after this. That’s what we in California call “Chutzpah”! Hey New Yorkers, get some cajones and give this place your business…stop being such schumcks!

  • hahabloomberg

    Nice mouth, RINO.

  • The Daily Current = The Onion…with BALLS!

  • So you were dumb enough to fall for it too?

  • Boiler Room

    I want to buy a slice from that guy…

  • I SOOOO hope this is true. I would PAY big money for a Utube of this encounter

  • Someone please get me the address of this place, I want to shake this mans hand and support him, because you know the Dept of Health is going to be there tomorrow if not tonight

  • This has got to the best story ever. Sure hope Leno and Letterman pickup on it. Just can’t imagine Jimmie Fallon will do to this. Love people who stand up for their rights and freedoms. I support the pizziera owns 100%. This is still America the last time I checked.
    Wooooo Hoooo for Antonio Benito!

  • And you should slap yourself in the head while repeating “idiot” for not getting this obvious joke. And don’t vote anymore.

  • Now maybe someone really WILL have the nerve to do this after seeing how many people love it. I can dream …

  • Great! But now he will get all the city flunkies to hammer this guy, I bet he goes under within a year. (if it is even true)

  • Then you’ve got to be an idiot.

  • BWalters

    1. You still use Yellow Pages.
    2. You ignored the flashing lights all over this article that say it’s fake and took the time to look this up.
    3. Pretty sure you vote.

  • Turn left at Mars.

  • Good for the pizza owner. And Mr Bloomberg you need to clean up your disgusting mouth. You are concerned over the size of a soda and let that filth come out of your mouth, You sir are an arrogant jerk.

  • Curious – How dumb does one have to be to fall for this?

  • Whether it is true or not, it makes a point that we as American need to stand up for our rights and not let the dumbasses in the White House, Congress, Sentate or States try and control our entire lives, whether it be a second serving or soda or the right to own a gun.

  • You really didn’t get that this is a joke?

  • BWalters

    I’ve known you for a bit less than 15m, and you’re one of my favourite people…

  • Sammie_Jo

    why? because I never heard of this website, you should feel like an idiot if you think it couldn’t happen.

  • Doesn’t matter if it was true or not, it’s gone viral. We all know once it goes viral it is hard to prove it was fake.

  • B. schneider

    Nice job Collegno! Give him a taste of his own medicine. Bad medicine!

  • Dude, it’s a joke.

  • Iwond

    I think this story is fake…but if so, it’s still true. That pizza was slathered with freedom, baked with liberty, and served with a smack in the face and the declaration of independence.

  • Hahahaha!!!! I LOOOOVEE THIS!!! I gotta find out if this is true.

  • Ms. Fitt

    Love, love, love this! Sure hope it is a TRUE story because did I mention that I loved it?

  • Loui

    I LOVE IT!!!!!! I hope each restaurant does the same to him every time!!! btw….potty mouth!!

  • You really do have to be an idiot not to get that this is a joke.

  • Amazes me how gullible people are. I was directed here from Facebook and I knew after a few seconds this was clearly a joke.

  • The article in the sidebar about Pope Benedict coming out as gay or the one about North Korea demanding to negotiate with Michael Jordan didn’t give it away for you?

  • Please never vote again.

  • Quincy

    OMG if more Americans aka Patriots would stand up to the tyranny we could still be a great nation thank you for a great example. The table should be in a museum.

  • this is complete B.S. Doomberg as we call him here in NY would never curse like that in public… If he did it would be on every news channel in the country… Don’t get me wrong most of us New Yorkers HATE THE MAN…But it would be awesome if he really did curse someone out like that…We would eat him alive….

  • Angie Spara

    Love it, he’s a dumbass

  • Look to the right. See the other article titles?

  • And thanks for the demonstration of stupidity.

  • Funny Fake Story.. Dang,, wish someone would do that.. some commenters don’t realize the “Daily Currant” is a satire site like the Onion.. I fell for one of there stories once myself….. I mean read some of the funny headlines folks…Pope comes out as Gay, Palin calls for invasion of Czech republic

  • Mahakala

    I love it. That story made my day

  • kev

    I can’t stop giggling!!! If I lived in New York I’d eat at this pizzeria twice a week! I hope this is true.

  • Amstaffbru

    I don’t think he said fuckin to them,,did he?

  • And you should look over to the right at the titles of the other articles on here and ask yourself how dumb you are.

  • MissTrixieB

    Love, love, love it! I bet Collegno’s gets a bit uptick in business. Congrats guys and thanks for giving Bloomie a taste of his own medicine. He is such a schmuck.

  • Google it. Go ahead. Idiot.

  • It’s a joke. You’re an idiot.

  • Yes, the imaginary restaurant in the satirical news article will get a huge uptick in fake business.

  • You’d lose weight.

  • Ok this might be satire or it might not be. It’s hard to tell sometimes on the internet. BUT one thing we know for a fact is that Bloomberg NEEDS to be treated like this for his bullshit fucked up policies. EVERYONE should refuse to serve him.

  • Look to the right—————————————————>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • LMAO awesome !!!!! i would love it if it was a true story !

  • and never vote again.

  • I’ve seen nothing to indicate it’s a fake.

  • Simple protesters do not sodomize Ambassadors or any one else. This happened in Benghazi, remember?

  • a slice of reality is a better meal for those who steal and then squeal…

  • TwoStrayDogs

    If I’m ever in Brooklyn, I will definitely give that restaurant my business.
    Bloomberg is such an overbearing, elitist, jack&ss.

  • jj

    And his language…..his mama ought to wash his mouth out with soap.

  • love this

    Way to go wish I was in NY to support the restaurant

  • J Wells

    That is so funny and poetic justice! I love it! I hope this is true because it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in ages. And if that is how Bloomberg talks to people, he needs a bridle on his mouth and an attitude adjustment.

  • The story is hysterical, but I think it’s even funnier how may people think it’s real. It’s a satyrical web site. Get it together folks.

  • J Wells

    Just scrolled down and saw this is a satire site. 🙁 I’m so sad. This story was so good. Oh well, will continue the search for true poetic justice.

  • The articles in the sidebar didn’t do it for you?

  • JD

    Just click on About at the bottom of any page. That will tell you about The Daily Currant.

  • MSD

    I LOVE NYorkers!! No BS, no kill you with kindness while they stab you in the back like they do here down south. Just say it, get it over with, and make a decision.

  • Love it..When the Opportunity Arises..Jump On It…

  • Really?

    Oh boy, and then you just lob that one up there for everyone. Might want to try a dictionary there, Vinnie. Then get back to leading your merry band of idiots.

  • PRK Escapee

    Dude, just check some of heir other headlines. This is like other satirical websites. It’s hilarious, but obviously satire. Though I WISH it were true.

  • Sammie_Jo

    well no, David, I didn’t bother reading every scrap of print on the page, I just read the article, do you have a problem with that?
    Just why are you fixated on me, I’m not the only one who thought it was a real story.

  • KhouryJo

    Unfortunately, fewer and fewer people understand what satire is, thanks to businessmen and politicians (especially Bloomberg) playing games with education.

  • I call Poe’s Law. “Bachmann: We must ban falafel in school lunches”? That could go either way.

  • I wish you were too so I could sell you a bridge.

  • Good luck.

  • Again, Poe’s Law. These days, it’s hard to tell fact from satire.

  • There must be adult ed classes where you are.

  • No. I have a problem with that fact that you and the rest of the morons vote.

  • God, That is GOLDEN! I Hope and Pray this is a true story! And if so, I hope the dipwad blows a gasket and retires in shame! Too bad there wasn’t a hold up, and Bloomberg could have shown off his ninja skills against an illegally obtained gun…

  • if this proves to be true it’s one of the funniest and most patriotic things I have ever seen an owner of a restaurant do I applaud you sir

  • Now that is funny! I don’t care who you are!!!

  • picnicfun

    That’s the way to fight back!

  • coppypoppy

    The language is what gave it away as satire…now, if it were Chris Christie, it would be more believable.

  • El_Sluggo


  • Harvey Melton

    what a jackass this bloomburg is he deserves geting what he gives out lol so funny that was priceless.

  • this made me LAUGH AND LAUGH AND LAUGH!!! I would have loved to have been there just to see him get pissed!!! I would have called the rival pizzeria and told them that he had already reached his personal daily limit of pizza and was refused and that they should refuse him also!! how pissed would he have been THEN???


  • Bemused doesn’t mean amused. It means confused. Are you? It’s a common mistake. Look it up.

  • It’s fake because everything on this site is fake. It’s like the Onion. It’s satire.

  • Love it!

  • Fake….it’s fake. The Daily Currant is fake. Egads, people.


  • Here’s hoping some fantastic restaurant owner will see this and do it to him for real lol

  • DailyCurrant

    Yes he was confused. A pizza place not selling pizza is confusing. Look it up.

  • radical1979

    Next time I’m in NYC I’m eating at this place.

  • Satirical or not, if he talks that way wash his mouth out with soap.

  • disgusted with politics

    Love it nanny bllomberg gets some of his own medicine. Thank you Collegno’s Pizzeria Next time I come to new york I’ll stop in for my personal slice limit 🙂

  • brianmiddleton

    LMAO “We’ve decided that eating more than one piece isn’t healthy for you, and so we’re forbidding you from doing it.”

  • brianmiddleton

    I wish this was true, because that would be HILARIOUS!!

  • A true American, this pizza guy. Claim it, speak it, never back down!!!

  • Fred

    Ok, it is satire – but does it have to be? If one restaurant owner actually had the balls to carry this plan out? And what can we each do in our own way, to make people stop and think of the ridiculousness of their actions, however silly, sad, or just plain unfortunate their decisions seem.

  • Linn

    OMG!! I love!, finally, someone stood up to this schmuck. He deserved what he got. The language alone, he should have been asked to leave the premises . The owner hadS the right not to Steve him . Where is this place? I’ll give him my business.


  • That’s not fair—- My sides are aching; I haven’t laughed that hard in years;

  • Love it Hoisted on his own petard!

  • Hockey Mom

    OMG!! TOO FUNNY!! And it serves the asshole right. If I ever get to NYC I’m going to make a point of going to this restaurant and thanking the owner.

  • My, my, my! Bloomberg sure knows how to swear up a storm, doesn’t he? And all because he couldn’t get a second slice of pizza. A big ^5 to Antonio Benito for giving this dunderhead mayor a bit of his own medicine.

  • priceless

  • JL

    From their site:

    Q. Are your news stories real?

    A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world.

  • WilSpeaking

    Oh no, tell me its TRUE!
    Hey, I’d order pizza there to support those guys! Do you ship to the Left Coast? Knowing California they probably have a pizza import ban. 🙁

    Can I ordera pizza as well? Is the guy paying. Is it becoze hes fat maybe that he only got one slize. But if hes the king of new york cant he just by the shop and kik the guy into prizon and then have as much pizzaz as he wants. Becaus if he doesn’t do that then hes seriously dum. You americans are all mad man. And ofen a bit too fat. Maybe he shoud just stick to something healthy like a hot dod.

  • D Umbo

    This guys not fat. sorry. i was thinking of another major that was fat. Is he Chicago?

  • “Oh what a world, what a world…” The wicked Witch of The West said. For you gave them eyes, but they cannot see…

  • this guy is a nut job, just like our past mayor in Detroit Michigan

  • This is making the rounds on conservative websites and facebook pages as a real news story. Because it fits their narrative and none of them have google apparently. Sometimes satire is just above people’s heads…

  • Damnit stop posting lies on the internet!! Its one thing to have the Onion but we dont need more crap like this on the internet!

  • Idiot

  • Go fuck yourself. Yes, I’m a pottymouth too! Fucker!

  • I love that you have time to tell everyone they’re dumb. You need a hobby. Or maybe a job.

  • Jesus Fucking Christ, David…you really had NOTHING to do today, did you?

  • Poor David. Absolutely nothing better to do today than to reply to everyone he thinks is stupider than him.

  • BigMomma

    The only thing I have to say is this “IF this story is true, I would kiss the guy that denied him the pizza on the mouth!!!!”

  • Way to make a stand to the lil’ guy with big man syndrome

  • How bored and sad does one have to be to reply to damn near everyone in this comment thread?

  • No, what’s sad is someone with absolutely nothing better to do today than to post replies all goddamn day on a web site’s comments system.

  • This is awesome ! This guy deserves an award….


  • Guest

    Someone is SO going to get nailed by the inspectors on fraudulent charges. Leftwingwackos are bloodthirsty and WILL take revenge.

  • OR nOT…. lol!

  • BeeKaaay

    IF this story was true….

    then someone will have inspectors nailing him for all kinds of bogus ‘violations’ – leftwingwackos are bloodthirsty and seek revenge.

  • And thanks for demonstrating how pathetic you are. You spend ALL DAY replying on this comment thread and WE’RE stupid?

  • Dude, you’re an asshole.

  • That would’ve been awesome. Why CAN’T this happen?

  • Love it!!!!!

    Take THAT, Asshole!

  • Andrew Davis

    Suck it, boomblarg.

    VE IT:):):):):):):):):):):):):):) PAYBACK IS A B**CH DOOMBERG

  • So if MSN posted it which they wouldn’t have you would say it was real? With as much BS as we get fed by the media and politicians I say this is fact and you can’t prove it’s not. Because what they report as fact on FOX and CNN is not fact either but you believe them? Who’s to say what is real and what is not. Maybe that actually happened in 1 of the infinite dimensions that are supposedly out there?

  • John Doe

    Einstein, if he didn’t get it he would have used “will” as opposed to the conditional “would.” He knows it’s satire. Read more carefully.

  • Guest

    Love it! The tables are turned for a change. Glad the owners had the balls to do it!

  • Bloomberg sucks… Absolutely amazing that he thinks he can ban soda from businesses but that he is deserving of two slices of pizza. C’mon, just lift the soda ban and get on with your life, man…

  • Petermax

    This is great. Way to go. If I was in New York I go for a slice. More than one as the government has no right to tell me what or how much to eat.

  • Kat

    Totally fake but a great story nonetheless. Go to the Daily Currants ABOUT icon, click and read. Nothing they write is real!

  • Kat

    Research it…go to bottom of the daily currant page, click icon ABOUT and read. They fully disclose its all fake.

  • I think it’s quite funny how so many people think this is a real news story.

  • Good Job Pizza Place.. Good Job.. Just like a Liberal not to like it when the shoe is on the other foot.. All NY Pizza places should do the same.. They want to exempt themselves from the same bullshit rules they implement..

  • We can prove it’s not because this is a satire site and this restaurant and owner don’t exist.

  • Sure they would.

  • They can’t eat there because it doesn’t exist.

  • Too bad it’s fake cuz it is hilarious!

  • It’s satire.

  • It’s not real, it’s satire. Better go apologize to your husband.

  • It’s satire.

  • He should’ve fed the Son of a Bitch some Cyanide. He might have gotten locked up, but he’d be a Hero to Millions…

  • It’s not, it’s satire. Look at the FAQ.

  • It’s satire. So congratulations on being marginally more intelligent than the other commenters here.

  • Give the guy a medal.

  • Do they teach you what satire is in California?

  • religion&politics

    THIS WOULD BE SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope this happens for real!

  • DenverGal0424

    Hate to break it to you buddy- I’ve seen libs scoffing at how Bloomberg got what he deserved. Bundle up your smugness and take a hike.

  • Stop making excuses for your own laziness. It’s obvious that this is satire, it’s slathered all over the website.

  • From the Daily Currant’s “About” section in their own words:
    ‘The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide – now including South Sudan.

    Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence – which presses forward.’

  • Kile

    That’s how you stand up to a tyrant. Great going pizza guy. I LOVE IT!

  • Take a second to look at the other stories and then you tell me if this is real.

  • SATIRE!!!

  • Except when it’s satire.

  • It’s pretty easy to do in a very small period of time.

  • The owner should have reminded him that its unhealthy to skip breakfast too.

  • The hero doesn’t exist. This is satire.

  • It’s satire, you moron.

  • Because it’s too hard for you to differentiate humor from truth? That’s your problem, not theirs.

  • Then they’re just as dumb. Unfortunately for you there are far fewer of them.

  • Good luck finding the restaurant.

  • patricia

    for all the politicans that make stupid rules like that should be restricted in some way good for the restraint owner

  • Have fun looking for it.

  • You’ll be praying for a long time.

    Now that’s awesome!

  • Screw Bloomberg. Every business owner in town should do the same thing.

  • Thomas Weiss

    Oh well, one can hope. I’m still gonna spread it around.

  • How dumb are you?

  • jk

    How much you wanna bet Bloomberg pulls his business license in retaliation ?

  • But what about that whole “personal responsibility” thing the right is always crowing about? They have no one but themselves to blame for not knowing what satire is, right?

  • This is the best story of the week! It is awesome and that restaurant needs to get a medal! But will probably have its license revoked on some trumped up charge. Bloomberg needs to be stripped of command. Immediately.

  • Fugitive Vizsla

    “It’s like The Onion if The Onion weren’t funny.” FTFY.

  • It’s satire. There is no restaurant.

  • It’s satire. There is no “unless.”

  • You mean the fake business license for the fake business?

  • I really wish I had the money to organize a meet for all of the commenters that don’t know what satire is to go support this “pizza place.”

  • Best story ever!!!!

  • buhwana

    I love NY’er. for every asshole like Bloomberg, there a guy like this! In your face mayor asshole!

  • It’s satire. The business isn’t real.

  • The pizza guy isn’t real. Unless you just like to cheer on fictional characters.

  • They wouldn’t have anyone to give a medal to, because he doesn’t exist.

  • He’s not real. But you are a very real crazy person.

  • Pizza Place no exist.

  • Please do go to New York and go buy a slice. Let me know how the search for the restaurant goes.

  • Fake owners, fake balls.

  • What if ALL of NY business owner showed Bloomberg some “love” like this? That would be great…

  • I don’t know about that. It doesn’t really compare to something like Great Expectations or The Heart of Darkness.

  • I don’t think any one person owns all of the businesses.

  • Jo

    For one, the mayor definitely does not speak like that in public. And then, yes, SATIRICAL site.

  • Priceless! Too bad this poor guy’s pizza shop will be closed down.

  • Lori Passos


  • Flock

    ha ha ha about time someone call him on his bs

  • Jim

    This is just stupid. Take your business somewhere else.

  • Kat

    That’s hilarious, though I don’t know why they decided to include his personal fortune. That had nothing to do with the article.

  • It can’t be closed down because it doesn’t exist.

  • Wrathful_Brunette

    Yeah, I’ll go do that. Profusely. Groveling, even, like you do for dates.

  • To another imaginary pizza place.

  • He’s a “job creator.”

    Sounds fishy.

  • Dumb erg shouldn’t be allowed to have so much money. Share the wealth you know.

  • Nice Vocab…

  • How many idiots scroll down to comment, not realizing that this is a joke? This very site has adressed this, saying the story is bogus and that their site is nothing but satire. Half of you people failed the basic intelligence test of being able to sort this out by yourself. No wonder Bloomberg is so successful…. apparently, his enemies and detractors are all morons!

  • lackofood

    I love this , . . . Bloomberg – you deserved this~ Full Barrel~

  • I raise my big gulp in honor of this man’s testicular fortitude.

  • Nonmi Hiseddeo

  • Terry C

    Interesting, the high and mighty mayor of New York resorts to cursing business owners when the tables are turned on him. Shows he has a low mentality.

  • Sammie_Jo

    why don’t you go sit on a tack, I told you, I didn’t read anything but story the same as others obviously did. I don’t spend all day reading every word on every web site.
    I don’t make excuses and I am the last person anyone would call lazy. bite me.

  • Sammie_Jo

    I have a problem with the distinct probability that you voted for obama and you’re calling other people morons. ROTF

  • It’s a fake story. You’re on a news satire site.

    Bad Attitude. No Pizza for you, one year!

  • karen

    not only was he angry at this, he proceeded to verbally harass the restaurant owner and used some pretty vulgar language, I think he should apologize the mayor of NY is expected to behave in an exemplary manner…if it was a cop or another city worker they would have been suspended for making use of the F bomb….

  • What a jerk.

  • shane

    I can’t even believe how awesome this is. Go Pizza Dude!!!

    damn it this isn’t fake is it? Crap whatever it made me happy anyway

    Don’t thinks so. You don’t know New Yorkers very well.

    Note to Self: Open a pizzeria and name it “Collegno’s”. Based on all of the comments, I’m going to be a rich man in no time!

  • Guest

    Excellent. And Bloomberg just proved what a punk he is.

  • If this really happened… Antonio Benito you are the hero of the week… I love you man… This should happen to Hitler’s mini-me everywhere he goes. I hope you have started a trend.

  • The fact that The Daily Current is basically another version of The Onion doesn’t tip you off?

  • T_Nigs

    The owner of the pizza parlor has my vote for the next mayor!!!

  • karen

    This is great!! Hooray for that Pizza guy!!

  • Good. Let him learn what a New Yorker has to suffer because of him. And his behavior certainly suits him; it is typical of a politician. I wonder if he was intelligent enough to even recognize what the owner was saying as being his own words.

  • PJ

    I don’t LIKE being faked out! Last time I’m EVER reading the stupid Daily Currant Lies. Satire or not, it’s not RIGHT to fool Americans who get LIES UPON LIES from the government and politicians. Just don’t need hearing this garbage! If it isn’t true, don’t write satire. It’s a waste of everyone’s time.

  • Ronald Hunter

    Someone SHOULD do this!

  • skylights

    This dipshit restaurant owner got the analogy wrong. Pizza by the slice is similar to soda size limits. If you’re still thirsty, you can get a refill. If you’re still hungry, you can order another slice. This idiot was out of line. EDIT: I read a comment that this is a satire site. In that case, it’s the writer who based this failed satire on a bad analogy. That so many people cheered this story only shows that there are a lot of morons out there.

  • Blah

    True or not, the people complaining about the cursing must have never spent a day of their lives in NYC. That’s just how people talk here.

  • I’m not a New Yorker. But if I were ever graced with Mr. Bloomberg’s presence. Well… Lets just say he would get a polite hello.

  • dopeedoo

    Please cite these sources so we can tell hem that they are just as retarded as you are.

  • dopeedoo

    Except the fact that the about section of this site is fucking stating that this is satire, so anyone that is a fucking idiot will think it is real while the rest of the people will realize that “Currant” was already a dead fucking give away.

  • dopeedoo

    Typical idiot.

  • dopeedoo

    Couldnt doesn’t mean did. I can imagine many a nasty thing about people I hate.

    So, we live in a world where “if we believe enough, it is true” now? Let me try it.

    I am believing that you are an idiot. Oh hey, it works!

  • dopeedoo

    The irony.


  • dopeedoo

    I hope you look in the mirror one day and go “god damn, I am a fucking idiot”.

  • dopeedoo

    These comments are more welcome. Trashing bloomberg while acknowledging this is fake is 100% awesome.

    The dude is a douche, but people are not excused on being fucking retarded.

  • dopeedoo

    y u mad tho

  • dopeedoo

    I’ve seen nothing to indicate that you have a functioning brain.

  • dopeedoo

    We can dream all we want, but it won’t happen.

    Bloomberg’s a douche, but many people aren’t going to stand up to him. They will let another guy do it and then “claim to be behind” the guy after the deed is done.

    It is pathetic.

  • dopeedoo

    You have a brain. You get the satisfaction of knowing that most of your fellow NY citizens can’t tell satire from truth.

    Oh wait, that isn’t very satisfying is it. 🙁

    Also, yes, I think he is a douche too.

  • dopeedoo

    Personal attack. A sign that not only did you lose, but you really fail at engaging someone who proved you to be incorrect.

    y u mad tho?

  • gager

    The mayor is the dipshit.

  • dopeedoo


  • dopeedoo

    ” If it isn’t true, don’t write satire.”

    Ow, my brain.

  • dopeedoo

    Sadly NY folk will give a literal polite hello and that is it. Everyone is getting behind this fake article because they want someone else to do the dirty work so they can feel better about themselves knowing they didn’t “have” to.

    People are too scared to tell the guy he is a douche. It won’t happen. People are wanting someone else to do it and then will just “support/get the guys back” after the fact. Why soil their own hands when someone else can do it for them.

    Bloombergs a douche and will continue to be one and noone will say a word to him if he gets in their proximity.

  • If I am ever in New York again it’s Collegno’s Pizzeria for me! I love it when Americans strike back!

  • Even if its fake, this is a great story!

  • greg scott

    Hilarious! If I lived in New York I would eat at that place all the time. Love when people stand up to the ruling thugs who think they are above all the rest of us.

  • eat HUMBLE PIE Bloomberg

    Made my YEAR!!! Hope this guy doesn’t get ‘Breitbarted’ in the next week or two…. Bloomberg might seek revenge. He’s an EVIL POS.

  • JeromeD

    I think the best way to expose the death of journalism today is The Daily Currant. *SO MANY ORGANIZATIONS* spread these stories as true, it’s insane. Nobody bothers to check. More recently it was left-wing folks reciting some of their stories as gospel (I think a few foreign nations fell for some of their stuff as well), now you’ll see a lot of us libertarians embracing this (because the story is simply something we wish to be true). It’s a shame – I SO WISH this story was true.

  • Bravo Antonio Benito!

  • Ed_Stark

    So do you think “Supreme Court may limit gay marriage to attractive lesbians” is a real story too?

    This is a satire site, genius.

  • Outstanding. That blowhard Socialist who thinks he should run everyones life for them got some of his own medicine. I love it.

  • McBob79

    Funny but fake. Bloomberg is not the kind of politician any state or municipality needs.

    The people who believe that this might be true are too stupid for words.

    Ah, the internet…..someone who cannot spell “writers” has the gall to call someone else an idiot? I would have assumed it was a typo, but you did it twice. That makes you a “looser” and a “moran.” (intentional misspelling, I wanted to make sure Doree could understand it.) As for the 59 people who seem to be unaware that this article is a joke….please seek shelter: Godzilla was sighted off the North coast of the USA, swimming in the Indian Ocean.

  • JeromeD

    I would disagree with your assessment.

  • Walter Bellhaven

    He wasn’t. The article is satire. I WISH it really happened.

  • JeromeD

    …and yet, I find myself loving the owner as well. : )

    This is simply the adult version of Santa Claus.

  • ChestRockwell

    This is SATIRE.

  • Mark_ Tx

    I am curious .. Did Bloomberg have a condom for his language .. and how does he regulate the crap from his mouth? How about toilet paper regulations? He is just not use to being told NO.. since he always knows what is best .. He is our ” Grandpa Nanny “

  • Walter Bellhaven

    FYI: From The Daily Currant >> About

    The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media.

    Q. Are your news stories real?

    A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world

  • Department_Of_Evil

    Because no small business owner could speak to Bloomberg that way without having an army of NYC inspectors swarm in and shut down his business. His Excellency is infallible, don’t you read his press releases?

  • Joe

    “Point well made” didn’t tell you he knew it was fake? Seriously. Read and comprehend.

  • 44RedHawk

    B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L – LMAO in pure delight, Thank You Antonio for one of the best sucker punches ever delivered to the little Bloomturd. Man, I’d have driven 500 miles to your Pizzeria and tipped you $500 just to watch that one if it were indeed true.

  • Caligula

    Especially since we have a bunch of clowns in D.C. performing everyday. The lines have blurrred.

  • Caligula

    What passes for serious politics and policies these days is so absurd that it’s getting tougher everyday to recognize satire from reality.

  • ChestRockwell

    It is FAKE you MORON!!!!

  • Department_Of_Evil

    You can’t put something on the internet if it’s not true! There’s a whole article on Wikipedia about it written by a Dr, Cockanbull, the inventor of electricity! Google it!

  • truckbouy2

    “Look jackass,” Bloomberg retorted..

    Well now, seems to me we all know who the real j-a is here.
    This is outstanding. This restaurant man should be honored with the highest medal America can give if this is a real incident..

  • We find out he only wants to impose his nonsense on other people and that he is a vulgur man.

  • This made my day lol

  • Walter Bellhaven

    you don’t even have to go to snopes. On THIS website click on “About” at the bottom of the page.

  • Restaurants in NYC should start selling Bloomberg Specials – buy one 16 oz soft drink and get the second for a 25¢.

  • Poor pizza guy will be out of business in less than a year. Too many restaurant inspections, rules and health regulations to avoid becoming a victim of Nanny Bloomberg.

  • Alfredo

    Of course, a real giveaway would’ve been a headline along the lines of “Obama takes responsibility for…” well, anything negative…

  • Matt

    Its official. If I lived in New York, I would eat at this Pizza place a couple times a week. Tell Nanny Bloomberg to sod off.

  • GeolJen

    I hope this story is true! I would love someone to put the Mayor in his place.

  • Tim

    Rather fake but accurate.

  • Ziegler45314

    Collegno’s Pizzeria is now my favorite eatery in NYC and strongly encourage everyone to eat there. FYI: they are real…even if the story isn’t…but damn it it should be, simply because it’s entirely plausible.

  • Ah, if only it weren’t satire. I did get a good laugh from it though.

  • Why don’t we just use you left winger’s standards: it has truthiness, fake but accurate. So HA HA HA HA to you lefty Bloomberg sycophants and paid blog posters.

  • StormyKnight

    Did a web search for Collegno’s Pizzaria. Turned up one reference to a Collegno’s Pizzaria in Collegno, Italy. Nothing for New York City OR Brooklyn.
    As much as I would love for this story to be true ( I laughed ’til I had tears in my eyes), I’m questioning it’s validity until such a time it can be proven that Collegno’s actually exists. Can anyone from New York give up a phone number to the place?
    Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble.

    What a wonderful way for the Mayor to show his ignorance. I would have told him to get out for swearing. Just show’s that he has no class either.

  • General Idea

    if you’re going to fake something like this, read the Onion and learn how to do it.

  • GK_Zhukov

    Not that the occasional fool doesn’t believe an Onion headline from time to time.

    This is the BEST STORY EVER! I was having an awful day- now I’m laughing out loud! YES! MAN I wish I could have been there. I would have given the restaurant owner a standing ovation!

  • And you’re a rude little turd hiding behind a sign.

  • wish the asshole had got run off while he was walking . I wonder why he was mad ,

  • Sam

    I so, so, so wish this were true. No business owner would dare, though, because they know they would quickly face retaliation by city “inspectors” who would fine them into oblivion and Bloomburg would pressure the building owners not to renew their lease.

  • I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! If I lived anywhere near, NYC, I’d be visiting Collegno’s every chance I had!!!!!!!!!

  • Sounds way WAY too good and GODLY good to be true. But the fantasy of it all made me feel good to the bone for my imaginary restaurant owner. I even pictured me flying from L.A. to New York to patronize this owner who no doubt looks like the Rock or Thor…maybe Ironman. Oh well….

  • peppertree5706

    Doesn’t Bloomburg have something better to do than to fret over how much soda I drink? If he’s truly concerned about me, he could drop a cool million or two into my account. He’d never miss it and it would make a big difference to me.


  • What’s throwing people off here is the attribution of the word “fucking” to the mayor. This is part of a typical New Yorker’s vernacular making it sound too real. The term “schmuck” did bring it back a bit, however.

  • Steven Patterson

    Antonio Benito is my new hero….I love this guy!!! Antonio for mayor….no make that President!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Good for the owner how does Bloomie like it..Wonder if there will be retailiation against the owner That is typical whe dems don’t get their way…

  • T

    I detest Bloomberg but from the comments it seems like this story might enter the realm of people thinking that Sarah Palin actually said, “I can see Russia from my house.”

  • i know it

    this is fake.

  • aaronbbrown

    Serves Bloomberg right, this is America dammit! We have the right to destroy our bodies with junk food if we want. I don’t see any Americans jumping on boats to go live in Cuba, where Castro’s goons tell people how much meat they will receive each week, and control every aspect of their lives like some fascist dictatorship. In America we convince people with the strength of our arguments, we don’t lay edicts on them from on high or pass laws that punish those that engage in excesses of their own choosing, particularly when they have no direct impact on anyone else around them.

    If Bloomberg wants to go after somebody, he should go after corporations that own the brands that sell soda, go after Coca-Cola or Pepsi or Dr. Pepper, but he doesn’t have the balls for that, because those corporations put money in his pocket. Glad to see New Yorkers standing up to the mayor.

  • mustang

    RIGHT ON, give the tyrant a little taste of his own medicine. These people are all the same, idiots. Psychopath liars, thieves, hypocrites as that is the communist way, control freaks. I would have given him a second slice but no peperroni on it, just a ‘secret sauce’. End of problem.

    Blah blah blah gaseous windbag, more fake outrage over a fake article.

  • geoffmartin7777

    It makes zero difference to right-wing cranks that this article is completely fake, no the slightest bit of difference at all.

    Downvoting me for pointing out this is fake… hahahaha wingnuts so sorry to be a buzz kill.

  • Guest

    You’re a little right-wing tyrant posting your “deep thoughts” on a fake article. Congratulations on winning the internet.

  • Guest

    Drudge sent me here.

  • aaronbbrown

    If Bloomberg had any real balls, he’d slap a $10 tariff on every canister of commercial soda syrup sold in New York City, to be paid by the soda manufacturers, but he won’t do that, because the corporations that own those brands owned him and every other politician in New York.

  • ooppsss it’s a hoax

    Palin Announces 2014 Presidential Run

    “Former Republican Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin announced last night her intention to run for U.S. president in 2014.”

    “Barack Obama’s second term is going to be a bigger disaster than the
    first,” she said in an interview to Fox’s Sean Hannity. “We need to
    prepare our nation for the post-Obama era of prosperity.

    “The next election is only two years away. That’s only 420 days. And
    when that day comes, I intend to be the Republican presidential
    nominee in 2014”

  • geoffmartin7777

    Right-wing Teatards are unable to discern fact from fiction because they watch Fox News and read right-wing blogs like Drudge.

  • Guest

    Wait, your comment and you STILL know this story is fake?

  • geoffmartin7777

    “Collegno’s Pizzeria” doesn’t even exist pinhead fool.

  • Me

    Lol. I doubt Bloomberg would be having a business lunch at some pizza parlor. I’m sure he goes to some high class restaurant.

  • Joey Plew

    That goes to show, it doesn’t matter how rich you are, you can always be refused service.

  • stimpy77

    I still back Bloomberg’s actions but I know he would have this coming to him. Very funny. 🙂

  • pduffy

    Beautiful! Just beautiful!

  • You are all Stupid and Fat

    The more accurate story would involve Bloomberg ordering a whole pizza to eat by himself, and the store owner saying, “I am sorry sir, we believe that it is unhealthy to eat that much in one sitting and we think that after two slices, you will see that you have had enough. So we only sell individuals two slices at a time. But if you eat two slices and are still hungry, we will happily sell you another two slices.”

  • if this is true….I really do love it!!

  • A city as big as NY with a Mayor who feels he can DICTATE what you guys drink will soon go on to other things much bigger. This in it’s self is taking away your right to think and choose for yourself. I am from TX but Perry tried some BS stuff for the whole state and had to be fought on it, so hang in there NYC, remember you can if it comes up NOT reelect him. Good luck and keep fighting this idiot. I was smiling as I read it. His mouth is quite foul isn’t it when he comes up against someone willing to stand up to him. NICE going…And yes this Texan knows it’s a fake too bad it really didn’t happen but do keep fighting this moron

  • Cynkalan

    I fell for it…hook, line and sinker!!!

  • Too bad the Jets screwed this young man over and destroyed his promising career

  • Stupid protest by the owners, but Bloomberg’s verbal attack proves what a POS he is. Not surprising that a billionaire thinks he can talk that way to everyone else.

  • R_Pipkin

    I know, but some people miss this…

  • Charlie’

    The “Chicago Thug” was just to point out that is this Administration’s way of getting their way – in this case, he didn’t. 🙂

  • Billy

    Assumed elitism must be met at times with reality. He has been schooled!

  • I kinda wish this had really happened. Even Bloomerberger isn’t douchey enough to talk like that to a citizen.

  • PeteQuince

    That Bloomberg would be eating in a run-of-the-mill NY pizzeria, for any reason other than a photo op, is not plausible.

  • PeteQuince

    What bothers me is that nine tenths of people who read Daily Currant articles swallow every word of them, and go on in life more ignorant than they were already.

    It’s not just stupid, it actually pollutes public discourse.

  • Hey, could I get another pepperoni over here?..With all his money he should become vegan if he wants to live a bit longer to spend it…

    “What goes around, comes around”. And when those who send “it around” get it smack in the face when it comes back around at them…LOL!

  • HardheartedharbingerofHaggis

    Bloomie: . . . THAT is how one is foisted on one’s own pitard! Choke on it!

    Game-Set-Match, Pizzeria!

  • Only in NY would a restraunant owner have the balls to tell off Bloomberg. I love it. If it were my restraunant I would have done the same thing to that MF COMMUNIEST .

  • Sianne Travis

    Good for them…now if someone would serve up one of Michelle Obama’s great diet lunches to her instead of what she probably eats…that would be fantastic. Stand up America; the day we’re being told what to eat and drink is here so stand up I say.

  • BubbaT

    Too bad the slices didn’t give him terminal indigestion.

    yeah, you clever libtards made guys like me look silly, proud of your accomplishment? oh wait you are just an internet moron commenting on someone else’s clever troll

  • MusingLew

    And commie lefties like you think that turning NY into the nannie city with this sawed off runt dictating to you what you can and can’t eat is just peachy. You know, cuz you watch the intelligence brewing out of MSNBC and all their lil commies commentators….

  • MusingLew

    Its actually moron, more leftie brilliance on display…

  • Cynewulf

    I’ll pull a Rather: Even if it’s not true, it’s true…

  • Department_Of_Evil

    You seem to be a bit confused….first of all, it’s “COMMUNIST.” And I think you mean “CAPITALIST.” Bloomberg is a communist like Woody Allen is a National Socialist. I’m hoping your spelling of restaurant was just a typo.

  • Department_Of_Evil

    Bloomberg is a registered Independent, but was a Republican before that….and actually briefly a Democrat….he just shifts with the winds, like Joe Lieberman. Laugh away, fuuckface

  • I love it… wish it were true!

  • Bloombergass

    That is great he needs that to teach him about life in the real world.

  • Sid Stewart

    yeah!! about time someone made those creeps eat their own words; wish that pizza joint was around here I would eat there in a minute

  • LawGeekNYC

    I firmly believe in the correct usage of the word bemused even in satire. 🙂

  • Kile

    I do.

  • coffetauk

    Pizza turns into sugar very fast in the body… at least protein on it slows the process down, but oh, the cholesterol in that pepperoni! What goes around comes around. The man obviously does not eat in a healthy way himself, so why did he decide to be so heavy handed about the soda? Go figure!

    He’s also got quite a mouth on him being in a public restaurant and speaking that way to the proprietor!

  • It matters not that it is fake. Look up brain washing and you will see that this is a tactic used by government (him included). Just put the headlines out there and in six months all people will remember is that he was refused more pizza and he cusses like a drunk sailer.

  • Awesome job guys the idiot Bloomberg needs to have is ego slapped around a bit. He’s arrogent scum-bag!!! Don’t skip breakfast Bloomberg health officals say it’s the most important meal of the day for people really concerned with their health.

  • Three Legged Midget

    The comments are almost as funny as the story.

  • wow I can’t believe people actually enjoy reading fake story’s, and some actually believe every word they read, this is crazy, there is enough real crap going on in the world , why would you want to read anything fake, is your lives that boring you need to liven it up with fake story’s, very sad that people actually like this kind of site.

  • buckofama2010

    This owner is AWESOME!!! I would LOVE to buy his pizza to show my support…wonder if he delivers in TEXAS?

  • derdum

    good luck finding a made up pizzeria. the story is fake

  • 1911HeadBanger

    I love it when worthless, Elitest, Nanny Government Bastards like Bloomberg get a taste of their own regulations. Hopefully they gave him a Kiddie Sized soda to go with it.

  • EPIC!

  • Raichu

    I think the cursing makes it funnier, and drives home the point more.

  • joe

    It serves the stupid, officious asshole right.

  • Socialists always try & run your life, when they often cannot run their own

  • Ben

    Good for the owner all the business that he goes to should stand up to that jerk and let him know they are not doing to take his crap without a fight.

  • Anothercoilgun

    One way to gauge the authenticity of this story, short of surveillance (but as we know video proof of something going down is impossible these days regardless of camera count), it to see what happens to the restaurant.

  • donzap

    Love it! Bloomberg can dish it out but he can’t eat it.

  • That was funny right there. That was funnier than an Atheist asking god to make him a millionaire.

  • I owe that man a shot or 50 of Jack

  • David

    uhh-have you gone to a pizza parlor in new york before? Bloomberg’s gotten his picture taken with nearly every pizza owner in the city.

  • walterr44

    Where is this pizzeria? I want to go there and order a Bloomberg special,
    5 slices and a 64 ounce cup of soda

  • Excellent!!!! And I’ll make bet his pizzeria is crowded to the brink now!

  • Stephen Carmona

    It’s satire…check SNOPES.

  • Tim

    This site’s not Libertarian at all, besides Bloomberg in this one article ALL of the people it targets are conservatives who are made fun of for saying bad things about Socialism, among other reasons.
    No Obama, no Feinstein, no Biden, no Hillary, no MSBNC, all conservatives and it uses the race card, the gender card, PC and other liberal talking points.
    A Libertarian is not just a liberal.

  • Tim

    On another article, we were told it’s so close to something that could happen you can’t be blamed for believing it…

  • Tim

    That’s actually what liberals do, truthiness is when something’s fake but accurate.

  • Eva Deutsch

    Benito are you related to Benito Mussolini. ? The whole thing is note funny, the owner of the pizza parlor is very rude, tu sei molto stupido, signor pizza.
