What a tool.

It’s not Canada either. Ok, maybe Quebec.

Chicago style “pizza” has to be eaten with a fork, but it isn’t pizza.

Quatro’s deep pan in Carbondale.

davidk on January 10, 2014 at 8:54 PM

Should I ever lower myself to eat such junk, I would use cutlery, too. I also eat chicken the same way.

Sosume!

OldEnglish on January 10, 2014 at 9:11 PM

Hope a big truck makes him a human pizza.

“With a knife and fork?”

Whadda Communist

What…No one uses sporks here? Covers all the bases.

chewydog on January 10, 2014 at 9:48 PM

Not at all – he sucks on those…..

dentarthurdent on January 10, 2014 at 4:08 PM

…that was good!

I use sporks with my KFC. And then, only for the mashed tatties. God help us, not pizza!

gryphon202 on January 11, 2014 at 7:54 AM

Shouldn’t a bunch of other people have their forks in his pizza?

I mean, after all, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

Seems like a lot of folks in New York City could use some pizza, forked up or not.

ProfShadow on January 11, 2014 at 8:14 AM

Every year my employer has a pizza day and buy a couple of hundred pizzas for an employee lunching. I was really surprised at how many people use a fork and knife to eat pizza with. Heck, We also have a company cookout each year and I could believe the number of people eating burgers and dogs with a fork and knife. Then again I’m in MA which is pretty commie.

Dr. Frank Enstine on January 11, 2014 at 8:48 AM

oops spelled luncheon wrong. Oh well, only one of many errors in that comment.

Dr. Frank Enstine on January 11, 2014 at 8:49 AM

I never trust a man who either A) hasn’t fired a gun and B) eats pizza with a fork.

LaughterJones on January 11, 2014 at 9:16 AM

If you can pick up a slice without out liquid streaming off it, pick it up, and eat it like dogs, burgers and wings are all best eaten by the non-elitists. It is indeed the American way. I’ll grant that there are some “true” Italian style Neapolitan pizzas that are rather wet in the middle–that are OK to eat with a fork/knife since even folding it can be a bit risky. Likewise, some Chicago style inches-high can easily fall apart–but that’s not what De Castro was eating.

G. Charles on January 11, 2014 at 9:45 AM

Yep. Knives and forks are almost required for real Chicago-style deep dish pizza, especially right after it comes out of the oven and all that hot, creamy melted cheese is trying to burst out of the middle.

Chicago style “pizza” has to be eaten with a fork, but it isn’t pizza.

Al in St. Lou on January 10, 2014 at 5:35 PM

And a tortilla-thin piece of dough, with about a teaspoon each of sauce and cheese on it somehow is? Why are New Yorkers so afraid of actually putting a reasonable amount of toppings on their “pizza”?

JimLennon on January 11, 2014 at 10:07 AM

New Yawkers knew exactly what they were getting:
An unapologetic Leftist who is not one of them.
Pizza with a knife and fork – Happy, New Yawkers?
The entirety of sentient Americans laughs at the poseur and his (p)sychophants.
Have Fun, “rich” people! You got even worse than you thawt.

JimLennon on January 11, 2014 at 10:07 AM

Never had pizza in Italia, eh? That’s too bad because that’s exactly how they make it. It’s an appetizer, snack, or a side dish (usually) not an entrée.

Karl Magnus on January 11, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Elitist snob. I do take issue about Italian pizza. It is definitely an entree. And a personal pizza is ginormous.To much to consume in one sitting, so definitely “takeaway” I ate plenty of them during my the month visit. My daughter lives near Venice.

Queen0fCups on January 11, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Three months.

Queen0fCups on January 11, 2014 at 11:53 AM

All this talk of Chicago vs. New York styles is making me hungry. I’m going out for a carne asada burrito. Anybody else want one? I know a couple of killer places about a mile away.

/what? I’m in San Diego.

BillH on January 11, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Ah Venice, the ‘Little Suzhou of the West ‘ ;)

“Elitist”? *chuckle*
I don’t know where you have dined in Italia, but yer way off.
NO self-respecting Italian would serve that mess to anyone.

Karl Magnus on January 11, 2014 at 12:50 PM

The Commies, especially in Russia have become much more capitalists while America takes the road to Socialism.

Our economy is not bad because of capitalism, but because of a lack of capitalism. With Obamacare and all the welfare in this country we are probably 80% socialist and the Democrats and Obama are working hard to make us 200% socialist.

Karl Magnus on January 11, 2014 at 12:50 PM

Yeah, and look where that got Italy. :rolleyes

That’s why so many Italians immigrate to New York; for the PIZZA!

Arnold Yabenson on January 11, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Hiss fingerses is preciousssss.

ss396 on January 11, 2014 at 1:20 PM

I do, too. My teeth can’t take it otherwise. (They are nice teeth, mind you; just a couple are fragile.) I even eat some sandwiches with a knife and forth.

Alana on January 11, 2014 at 1:22 PM

I’ll probably get beaten for this, but in a pizza joint not too long ago…

JetBoy on January 10, 2014 at 4:26 PM

OK, all right, you’ve crossed a line now. You know it. Fact: eating pizza by hand can burn the roof of your mouth. So that’s one reason for utensils.

And as a “native” in these parts…no real NY’er would want to be caught dead eating pizza with any utensil. You pick up the slice by the crust-edge, fold it in half lengthwise, and shove the pointy end in your mouth and chow down.

JetBoy on January 10, 2014 at 4:29 PM

Hmmm. That may prevent the burning of the roof of the mouth. It’s a close call.

But don’t be dissing Sarah. That is just wrong. It’s wrong.

Paul-Cincy on January 11, 2014 at 1:28 PM

I can forgive the Alaskan not knowing how to eat pizza. She makes up for it with her hunting and field butchery skills.

Arnold Yabenson on January 11, 2014 at 1:33 PM

Anyone who disapproves of Chicago pizza is a ninny and a pantaloon.

antisense on January 11, 2014 at 1:55 PM

I know that it would be considered beyond the Pale by the Institutional Republicans, but it might be a good bit of subversive propaganda to start spreading the meme that the reason that he used a knife and fork was because he is not used to eating New York style pizza; being used to and preferring Chicago deep dish.

Subotai Bahadur on January 11, 2014 at 2:03 PM

It looks like, from that photo, that he’s eating a Neapolitan style pizza, which basically requires a knife and fork for at least the first few bites, because the floppy, chewy (not crisp) crust leads to a phenomenon called “Tip Sag” which is a recipe for losing all the pizza toppings if you try to eat it with your hands from beginning to end. This happens to be my favorite style of pizza, and I typically use a knife and fork for the first bite and then fold the pizza slice in half and eat the rest that way.

Eating a New York style slice this way is certainly a pinko-commie thing though. But it doesn’t look like he’s eating a New York slice in the photo.

JetBoy on January 10, 2014 at 4:26 PM

Of course she had to. Small bites too.

Could you imagine the optics if any of that got on the table or her shirt? Or if she chewed too much? Or opened her mouth too wide? Or had to use her napkin more than a few dainty taps?

I’m surprised she even ate anything. Remember Caroline Kennedy chowing down with Rev Al? The Good Rev sat and waited for the media to leave before he ate.

kim roy on January 11, 2014 at 2:46 PM

Pizza comes in a whole lot of different varieties, some you grab and stab in your pizza-hole fresh out of the oven.

Some you stumble out to the kitchen, open last night’s box, pick up a slice and chew (then listen to the ServSafe-approved chef in the house lecture you over how sick you’re going to get.)

But when it’s thin with a big dose of olive oil attempts to pick it up just result in everything on the crust slithering down onto your crotch. So you pick up the knife and fork just like the Sandinista.

Sometimes if it’s not Hoity-Toity $30 pizza with olive oil flown over from Tuscany that afternoon, you knife-and-fork the oily part toward the apex of the wedge then pick up the rest.

JEM on January 11, 2014 at 4:44 PM

This isn’t as bad as I thought. I had a friend in high school who was a Marxist. One time we got a pizza and he was redistributing the pepperoni so everyone got an equal amount. The rest of us didn’t like him touching our food so it didn’t last long. That’s how I think of a communist eating pizza.

Dan_Yul on January 11, 2014 at 5:53 PM

Nothing is easier for a photographer than capturing an extremely unattractive eating picture of someone. The result over the years has been a lot of politicians and such developing unusually fastidious eating habits in public.

TB on January 10, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Zackly. This is a nothingburger nothingpizza.

RushBaby on January 11, 2014 at 8:24 PM

Comrade’s just demonstrating how forked NYC is gonna be over the next four years.

It’s symbolism.

That’s what the cold beverage is for…to balance out the hotness. It’s simple pizza physics.

But don’t be dissing Sarah. That is just wrong. It’s wrong.

Paul-Cincy on January 11, 2014 at 1:28 PM

Yeah, I’ve certainly never done that before… :P

Never trust anyone who can’t pick up a slice a pizza. Especially in NYC. Or any NY’er who eats at Sbarro…so I’ll give Palin a pass there…not Trump tho, he should know better.

JetBoy on January 12, 2014 at 1:05 PM

Okay, now I really hate him.

This^

Also, be actively suspicious of anyone who uses two hands to pick up a pair of chopsticks

DarkCurrent on January 12, 2014 at 5:01 PM

Well, he is from New York. He probably eats that “other” picante sauce(not Pace) as well. ;)

I’m thinking Orange Whip

JetBoy on January 13, 2014 at 4:10 PM

Um, I usually eat pizza with a knife and fork. I don’t like getting grease on my hands and a lot of pizza doesn’t hold up well to being picked up.

Now call me a communist.

clayj on January 13, 2014 at 4:58 PM

Cracker crust, provel, bacon, italian sausage, and onion.

Done.
