The debate between New York vs. Chicago-style pizza is over. Jon Stewart spent two minutes absolutely destroying deep-dish pizza, even going so far as to say it’s “like sex with a corpse made of sandpaper.” The verbal assassination begins at the 4-minute mark.
First of all, we can all agree Detroit-style pizza is better than New York or Chicago. There’s really no argument there. Aside from that, I’m glad Jon Stewart throat-ripped Chicago, MacGruber style.
Chicagoans spend an unbelievable amount of time making fun of other cities like a high school douchebag trying to make himself feel better. They celebrated the Hawks’ 2nd Stanely Cup by incessantly talking about LeBron James. They chant Detroit sucks at sporting events not involving Detroit. And now the mayor is talking shit about the Freedom Tower. The unnecessary inferiority complex is both comical and obnoxious. Chicago may be the biggest little brother of them all.
Can’t we all just get along and eat Grilled Spicy BBQ Chicken Pizza made with rye whiskey.
UPDATE 1: A counter-attack has been launched by StatsChicago. It’s clear he’s trying too hard to be funny, something of which I’m frequently guilty, but his points are pretty spot on. Check out the diatribe here.
UPDATE 2: I’ve changing my best pizza declaration to be Texas-style. All other pizzas pale in comparison.
