When Jon Stewart jokingly noted that it hadn't snowed this much during Bloomberg's reign, de Blasio pounced on the opportunity at humor: "I think he paid the right guy. I mean, he had the money." It was like a Wade-to-LeBron alley-oop.
However, de Blasio found the most success with self-deprecating humor, specifically regarding the now infamous pizza incident. Removing a knife and fork from his pocket, the mayor said "As mayor of Napoli—I mean New York City—we are always ready for our pizza." After watching Stewart eat pizza like a regular person, de Blasio followed suit. He was rewarded with a Big Gulp (take that, Bloomberg); now he's a real New Yorker.
