Joe V’s unforgivable New Jersey sin
Nixon had Watergate, Clinton had the Lewinsky scandal, I have this.
Today I am filled with regret, sorrow, and overwhelming sadness. On Wednesday's show, I committed a New Jersey sin that may be considered unforgivable, at least in the eyes of Deminski. To be honest, if this taints my legacy forever, I have no one to blame but myself.
Pizza was delivered to the radio station for the staff around the 6 pm hour. Jeff and I still had another hour on the air together, but I couldn't wait until the show was over to stuff my face. We've all been there. But since Chris Christie was coming in an hour later and I didn't want my pizza grease-filled hands to get on the equipment we use in the studio, I had to take extreme measures to avoid that from happening. I ate my pizza with a knife and fork.
Just like Donald Trump. Just like NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Apparently this disgraceful act is bipartisan. I made fun of both Trump and de Blasio when reports came out regarding their pizza eating technique. Now I'm a hypocrite. A fraud. A lesser man than I was a mere 24 hours ago.
What I would like to do now is apologize. Not only to Jeff, or to our producer Kylie, who had to be a fly on the wall during this dark moment. I want to apologize to you. I am not proud of what I did, nor will I ever go down this path ever again. You have my word. Eating pizza with a fork and knife was undoubtedly one of the most horrific things I've ever done. I have learned my lesson. I hope you accept my apology and we can move on from this.
