The Mayor Of Philadelphia Burns John Oliver Pretty Hard For Hating On Cheesesteaks

On this past week’s episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver threw some shade at charter schools and the beloved native culinary offering from the City of Brotherly Love, the cheesesteak.

I don’t know if John Oliver has ever experienced the deliciousness of Dalessandro’s Steaks or Chubby’s Steaks (he seems like a I-went-to-Pats-once kind of guy based on his comment about wit wiz), but clearly he has no fucking clue what he’s talking about. For starters, every native Pennsylvanian east of the Susquehanna knows that provolone is the cheese that makes a cheesesteak a cheesesteak. Second, you’re a goddamn animal if you can’t appreciate a fine hoagie on Amoroso’s rolls.

Anyway, Philly’s Mayor didn’t take kindly to that. So he shot back with this:

Touche. Tou-fucking-che. Now let me load my snowballs up with batteries to throw.
