Okay, maybe it’s just my eyes or my glasses or SOMETHING but in your second picture, does it look like she has 2 sets of lips on the top and 2 on the bottom?

Brooklyn Pizza is the best Pizza in the world, but Grimaldi’s is so over.

It was great when it opened, but the past few years, since Patsy sold his business, it has been all downhill.

Grimaldi’s is so 90’s. Besides. would you stand on line for 1 1/2- 2 hours for a Pizza?

Her Royal High and Mighiness Michelle didn’t wait on line for hers. Betcha!

I doubt it. I’m no longer going to be PC and I’ve said that about people of all races. In fact, I say it all the time about a waitress at a restaurant we frequent. She’s obviously had lots of collagen and her mouth looks like a monkey’s butt. Oh, and she is white. Red hair, blue eyes.

Not quite true...La Sorrentina in Bay Ridge makes some nice pies. It’s run by an old-time Italian family. They also own the pork store across the street, Faicco’s. They make the absolute best meats I’ve ever tasted!

I went into Aunt Butchie’s (Bay Ridge) to buy a cake, and every single one of the workers behind the counter were Mexican.

I asked the owner later why there were no italian kids working there, as there used to be, and she said kids don’t want to work anymore...they just want to watch TV or surf the internet.

It was sad to see.

These people use Air Force One as if it's a private taxi for their every whim. He's never behind his desk and uses every opportunity to get out of town.

Why the heck couldn't she take the kids to eat Pizza before or after the Broadway Show on SUNDAY, when she was in Town? Nah, let the rich taxpayers foot the bill.

*I take care of my bras and shirts, as far as how they fit together goes, a lot more than she does and ain't no one photographing me. Goood God, woman.

*Did I hear her say that all foods can be enjoyed if eaten in moderation, and that exercise is important too? So go ahead and live your lives but just be sure to take care of yourselves? I didn't think so.

"The Boob Belt is Back!"

It's the only way she can appear to have boobs. The belt pushes her gut fat up so it looks like she's actually got boobs.

I suspect she has lipliner ...a product to outline & define your lips. Mostly older women wear it.... lips, as they age, lose definition.

Of course, for her it could be a way other thing :^)

Question: So if Mabelle and the girls were in New York since Sunday, does that mean Obozo lied when he told Bibi on Tuesday evening he was going to the private wing to have dinner with them????

Answer: YES, OF COURSE HE LIED!!! He doens’t know how to do anything else. When a person can’t tell the difference between lies and truth, he’s pathological.

Agreed! So let's focus on things like that, on her character and behavior, rather than on the fact that she's not a pretty woman. She can't help her height or bone structure, and frankly most of us in this country aren't in a position to criticize an extra twenty pounds. I will criticize her clothes and grooming too, when appropriate, because she is an ambassador for this country, but not her inborn physical type.

What was that spike lee (descended from slaveholders) movie? Do the right thing? Where the pizzeria that the whole black neighborhood loves gets burned in the end because racial hatred is more important than good food for little money?

As has been said so many times, it’s ok to be perfect, but when you’re preaching abstinence to everyone else, not to do the same yourself breeds nothing but resentment. She disgusts me.

Is that picture today. Is her ribbon purple? I think it may be. It’s Purple day which is epilepsy awareness day. David Axelrod’s daughter has epilepsy, so maybe she is wearing it.

If so, I won’t say anything negative about what she is wearing.

(My daughter has seizures.)

The pizza makers of Chicago aren’t going to be happy hearing the Obama kids like Brooklyn pizza better. Never liked the Chicago deep dish pizza. The super thin melt-in-your-mouth crust was the kind made in the Chicago Italian neighborhood where I grew up and it was the best. I’ve managed to find a local place who still makes it that way.

Yes, the boob belt is back....

From another website:

Saturday: Blue Man group and a stop at Dylan's Candy Bar.

Sunday: Brunch at Mesa Grill, followed by the musical "Memphis.". A tour of the Empire State Building and a stop by Magnolia Bakery for cupcakes.

Monday: Lunch at the Russian Tea Room and a preview of the new musical, "The Addams Family."

Tuesday: A trip to Harlem, including stops at The Studio Museum, The Apollo Theater and a bite to eat at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Mrs. O and friends later dined at Aquavit.

Wednesday: A tour of the "Sesame Street" studio. A visit to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and a well-known pizzeria, Grimaldi's.

And she has the audacity to lecture us on how to eat!

RE: “Pizza is on the health menu?

LOL.

Those people need to stay in DC.”

***************

Agree, can’t they stay home? Just keep on spending our tax dollars — the may pay for the pizza but how about the tens of thousands to get them to NY and back plus secret service et al. RIDICULOUS WASTE OF MONEY.

Here in LA, the only ‘healthy’ pizza comes with NO cheese and just veggies on a wheat crust. You know that’s NOT what they ordered.

In addition to dictating to us about health care, we also have to listen to this tribe telling us what to eat while they ignore their own advice. ENOUGH ALREADY.

Grimaldi’s = OVERRATED joint trading on its legacy, whose main clientele is comprised of yuppie neoBrooklynites who have moved to the area over the past 15 years and tourists. As a pizza connoisseur, I can think of 10 places that are better.

That's because there hasn't been a wave of Italian immigration since the mid 1960s. Without additional immigrants to replenish, ethnic enclaves die. That's a m-F'in fact of life. Besides, even the new immigrants (whatever their ethnicity) don't stay in a neighborhood for very long, and multigenerational neighborhoods are a thing of the past.

BTW: It doesn't matter whether you order Italian, French, or Vietnamese in NYC: You will have Mexicans or Ecuadorians in the kitchen.

Brooklyn pizza died when the yuppie/hipster douchebags moved in to Carroll Garden/Cobble Hill/Williamsburg and the old owners sold the joints to Pakis/Arabs, who staff the place with Mexicans.

I can honestly say that you get more consistently good pizza where the Italian-Americans migrated to (see Long Island and Monmouth County, NJ). However, as a resident of NYC myself, the joints that are left that do great pizza (you have to know where to look) are superior to anyplace else. Its just that you are not guaranteed a good slice like you were 30 years ago, when the joints were still run by Italians (or by Greeks and Albanians, many of the latter having spent time in Italy).

My faves: Arturos, Pizza Suprema (Manhattan), Catania's, Dominicks (the Bronx), Rizzo's (Astoria, Queens), DiFara (Avenue J, Brooklyn), Vesuvio and Pizza Wagon (Bay Ridge, Brooklyn).

I used to love Patsy's in East Harlem, but the family sold it to the employees from Puebla, and the quality and service has gone to hell.

Not really considered Bay Ridge. The area in question is considered part of Dyker Heights.

Last time I was there, they had changed the theatre on Fort Hamilton Parkway (where I had seen mice running around as I watched "Elf") turned into a pretty cool Chinese market.

My daughter tells me that most of the pizza places in Brooklyn are owned by Mexicans now.

I do know cases of Mexicans pooling their resources to buy pizza joints. In many cases, however, Pakis/Arabs/Chinese buy the pizzerias and staff them with Mexicans. Even back in teh 1970s and 1980s, many pizzerias in NYC were owned by Greeks and Albanians.

Don't get me started on the Halal Pizza/Chicken joints that are all over the outer boroughs these days. Yeech!

There are probably more "old school New Yorkers" (especially Italians) in Florida or the Jersey Shore area these days. The biggest migrant group moving to Brooklyn these days being Chad and Heather just out of Amherst or Berkeley.
