Like little stars.
It seems that Jon Stewart angered Chicago when he “may have implied that deep dish pizza tastes like a string cheese that had been baked for two hours inside of Mike Ditka’s ass,” so of course Stewart picked on Chicago pizza again, this time with even more force.
Worried that perhaps his epic rant was not convincing enough for Chicagoans, Stewart enlisted “Daily Show” correspondent Jason Jones, actors Matthew Broderick, Steve Buscemi and television personality and NFL great Michael Strahan to make the point for him. What makes New York pizza so much better than Chicago deep dish pizza? “It’s not the crust, it’s not the sauce, it’s not the mozzarella,” explains Broderick. “It’s the magic.”
“Oh, you don’t believe in magic?” asks Buscemi. “Well maybe that’s not magic’s problem. Maybe that’s your fucking problem.”
But Stewart finally came to a truce, acknowledging that Chicago pizza “is very tasty,” and found a new enemy: California. California pizza “is shit,” said Stewart. Alright, Cali — the ball is in your court now.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
