How Bloomberg stuffed his face after speech

From Urbanite:

Following his state of the city speech Thursday at Brooklyn College, Bloomberg ate at an Applebee's across the street from the auditorium, where he picked up the $73.30 check for the party of six and left a nice tip, said Zane Tankel, the CEO of Apple Metro, which runs the local franchise.

Bloomberg had a hamburger (no cheese), french fries and a diet Pepsi, said Tankel....he ate everything on his plate and some fries off someone else's
...

For Bloomberg, Applebee's beckoned

French Fries (Applebee's)
Serving Size: 1 serving, Calories: 430, Fat: 26g, Sodium: 250mg, Carbs: 43g

Hamburger (Applebee's)
Serving Size: 1 serving, Calories: 742, Fat: 47g, Sodium: 1,630mg, Carbs: 47g

Grand total (without the other person's fries): 1172 calories, 73g fat, 1880mg sodium, 90g carbs.

Apparently, billionaire mayors don't feel the compulsion to practice what they preach. (Love the lame attempt to save face with the diet Pepsi.)

Its a cute pub stunt when he does it. A punishable and, of course, taxable, event when others do.

Oh you love that greasy hamburger dont you mister mayor.Have some more fries and some one else's while were all taking things off the grocery list that are essentials.You and Patterson can preach to us about everyone suffering under the budget deficit while you sneak in another million or five for the Yankee stadium, or over paid staff salary.I hope the diet soda wasnt the cancer,thyroid problem causing aspertame and saccharine.Stevia might be safer bloomster.
Im sure you also dont give a damn about Palestinians starving in the refugee camp called Gaza created after the Nabka with the zionist invasion of Deir Yassin slaughtering thousands of native Palestinians in 1948 taking 70% of their land and counting.

Look at that. He uses eminent domain on the property of even his fellow diner. This Commissar knows no limits.

In Bloomy's defense, I drink diet coke frequently with meals, diet-friendly or not...

The whole point of the sarcasm is how seriously Hizzoner takes himself... when its convenient. Asshole.

Diet Coke saves you 52 grams of sugar per serving. Thats 2 servings per can, so your up over 100 grams of sugar right there.
Its a cleaner more refreshing beverage overall IMHO.

CHOW DOWN Bloomy !!!!

I've always wondered. Why does frozen corn taste sweeter than fresh corn?

It has to do with the effects of flash-freezing on the sucrose in the corn.

"Joe"...
you ignorant anti-Semite...
"Jew" is properly spelled with a capital "J".

You should have learned that in the 4th grade.

What's Bloomberg's religion got to do with his contempt for the poorer classes of NYC?

Stick with the issues please...huh!

Same reason ice beer has more kick, I reckon.
