He's just like one of us! (The final weekend edition)
After purchasing a cantaloupe-sized pumpkin for $6, the mayor was asked to reveal his favorite vegetable.
He said he eats a lot of onions, but declared iceberg [lettuce] the favorite.
He says it may not be fashionable but insists iceberg is "real America."
Have you ever heard anyone say their favorite vegetable is iceberg lettuce? I think most "real Americans" say "oh, crap, they're serving the cheap lettuce here" when it's featured at a salad bar. It is bland, boring and offers very little in the way of substance. So I guess Bloomberg has proved that you are what you eat.
