Bad puns lead to Bloomberg potty mouth

From the Daily News:

Even Mayor Bloomberg can’t stomach the corny lines he’s fed sometimes by his speechwriters.

"Who wrote this sh-t?" the potty mouthed mayor asked during the annual weigh in for the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Bloomberg had just rattled off an impressive 12 hot dog puns as he helped promote the annual Coney Island 4th of July tradition.

He said he wanted to be "perfectly frank" and called the competition a "dog fight."

He quipped that fans watching on the ESPN broadcast will see if the "dogged" pursuers of reigning champs Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut and Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas will “catch up, cut the mustard and be pronounced wiener.”

There was plenty more where that came from - and, despite ten years of elected office and hundreds of goofy stunts and ribbon cuttings — Bloomberg had reached his limit and panned the puns with a four-letter word.

It was not the first time he accidentally aired his famously foul mouth in public.

Great lesson here for all New Yorkers especially for kids. It's alright to curse especially in a public forum. Hey mayor Bloomturd, is it healthy to eat hot dogs? Can we wash it down with a super sized Coke? Can we have your permission? Shit yeah.

The problem for Bloomberg is that for all of his money, he has never hired someone to stand next to him and say "Pssst, Mike. DYou shouldn't be saying something lik that in public.""
