The New York Times gets all saucy with its coverage of their new mayor's shocking habit of eating pizza with a fork. The man himself blames his Italian heritage - he says that's just how people in Italy eat pizza - but the story ends with this coda:
Pressed on why a mayor who prides himself on populism would opt for such a technique, Mr. Greinsky shrugged. â€śHeâ€™s from Boston,â€ť Mr. Greinsky said of the mayor. â€śHe doesnâ€™t know any better.â€ť
Tsk. Unlike Boston, which actually has a mayor from Boston, New York is governed by a guy from Cambridge (Cambridge Rindge and Latin represents). So how exactly do people in Cambridge get pizza into their mouths? And what would an equivalent Boston culinary crime be? Marty Walsh trying to order Manhattan clam chowder at Sullivan's?
