Mayor Bloomberg On His Hot Dog Contest Speech: ‘Who Wrote This Sh*t?’
When it comes to puns, there’s a point where they stop being funny, and start becoming groan-worthy. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg knows that point, and he makes sure everyone else knows it too.
Bloomberg was speaking to the crowd gathered at the weigh-in for the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 3, and his speech was filled with hot-dog related puns. He emphasized each one, a look of amusement and annoyance on his face, before commenting on the prevalence of the puns. “Just think of many we got into one sentence.” he said, before articulating everyone’s thoughts by asking “Who wrote this shit?” Our favorite part is the man in the boater hat behind Bloomberg, who laughs at every pun like it’s the funniest thing he’s ever heard.
