Save the Deli

Mayogate Not As Bad As I Thought

Yesterday I reported that President Obama ordered a deli sandwich with mayo, assuming it was for him. I was wrong, and shouldn’t have assumed that. A Save the Deli source in the White House corrected the error. I’m quoting his email here:

“Fear not! I was also horrified when I first learned about this, and checked, turns out it was actually Kendrick Meek who ordered corned beef with mayo. The President ordered his with mustard (Axelrod’s influence, no doubt!). The confusion happened because technically the President ordered both, since he paid.”

My apologies to the President, his family, and America for the error. Allowing Congressman Meek to order his sandwich with mayo is still a minor sin (a time for leadership, if there ever was one), but my presumption blew mayogate way out of proportion.

I suppose this is a good time to announce that I’ll be leaving New York and moving back to Canada at the end of the month. No, I haven’t been exiled for dragging the President’s name through the mud. Just married to a lovely woman from the homeland. I’ll miss you NY, and your delis, of course.

    David, you’ll be missed. However, should the (Not So) Divine Sarah be elected President of the United States on Novemeber 6, 2010, many of us will be joining you in the land to the north.

    Make that November 6, 2012. I’m not in that big a hurry to move. Sorry.

    I’m relieved. Obama has enough to worry about without getting involved in mayo-mustard wars.

    I have enough of a conflict here at home fighting the good fight for brown mustard vs. that cheap yellow imitation the rest of m’ishpucha prefers.

    Dear David,
    So sorry to hear you are leaving NY. Where will you surf? Please bring your bride and a few friends for a great deli meal complimentary for your going away present

    NYC’s loss is Toronto’s gain! We look forward to welcoming David back to Toronto although no doubt he will be spending much time on the road fressing in NYC, Montreal and …..
