Were this Boardwalk Empire, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel would have ordered Van Alden and the boys to go to New York to “take care of” Jon Stewart and his The Daily Show goons for their brutal, artery-clogging take down of deep dish pizza. Unfortunately, we’re long past the days of disputes being settled with irons to the face, and Emanuel’s response was far more forgiving: he mailed The Daily Show a couple of Chicago-style pizzas covered with “dead fish,” a.k.a. robot oil, a.k.a. anchovies.
The Daily Show response?
Perfect. Unlike deep dish pizza, which is anything but.
