No, but everyone wishes it were true.
The satirical article goes like this:
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was denied a second slice of pizza today at an Italian eatery in Brooklyn.
The owners of Collegno's Pizzeria say they refused to serve him more than one piece to protest Bloomberg's proposed soda ban,which would limit the portions of soda sold in the city.
Bloomberg was having an informal working lunch with city comptroller John Liu at the time and was enraged by the embarrassing prohibition. The owners would not relent, however, and the pair were forced to decamp to another restaurant to finish their meal.
Witnesses say the situation unfolded when as the two were looking over budget documents, they realized they needed more food than originally ordered.
"Hey, could I get another pepperoni over here?" Bloomberg asked owner Antonio Benito.
Peals of laughter from my side, even though the article was not really true.
It goes on:
"OK, that's funny," he remarked, "because of the soda thing ... No come on. I'm not kidding. I haven't eaten all morning, just send over another pepperoni."
"I'm sorry sir. We're serious," Benito insisted. "We've decided that eating more than one piece isn't healthy for you, and so we're forbidding you from doing it."
"Look jackass," Bloomberg retorted, his anger boiling, "I fucking skipped breakfast this morning just so I could eat four slices of your pizza. Don't be a schmuck, just get back to the kitchen and bring out some fucking pizza, okay."
"I'm sorry sir, there's nothing I can do," the owner repeated. "Maybe you could go to several restaurants and get one slice at each. At least that way you're walking. You know, burning calories."
Witnesses say a fuming Bloomberg and a bemused Liu did indeed walk down the street to a rival pizzeria , ordered another slice and finished their meeting.
Great satire , however, according to Wikipedia:
The Daily Currant is an American satirical news blog that focuses on politics, technology, and entertainment. A number of its satirical stories have been taken for true news reports by press and members of the public.
So, no one can blame you for thinking this was truthful, but, unfortunately, it wasn't.
Sorry folks, maybe next time.

I can never quite figure out, personally, how it is that the Left will move heaven and earth to eradicate guns due to the Newtown incident, while parading children all about on the stage to touch peoples hearts, on the subject of keeping children safe.
When 20 children were killed, supposedly, by a mentally retarded boy with firearms.
While simultaneously telling us that the murder of a child at its most vulnerable while in the womb, is a private right and they, the political Left, will fight to the death to preserve that right of barbaric sacrifice within the womb, at any cost.
When over 1.2 million children are killed, annually, by a licensed physician and at their celebrated behest.
Then they tell us that we're backwards....

Since when did Congress begin administering joint resolutional labotomies? Imagine a world without balloons, Liberal Democrat Hank Johnson says. Perchance, imagine a world without elected buffoons, we respond.
He was talking about the federal helium reserve management and it's apparent funding...yeah, we have one of those departments and we probably spend millions on it.
But do we also have a federal elected moron management department? If so, heads should be rolling, and soon. However that action would have to be run through the federal head-rolling reserve department for approval, no doubt.
One glance and any quick listen to Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson, and despite the bedlam lying all around us, you actually begin to feel lucky in ruminating over the fact that despite this type of vacuous leadership, America has still managed to somehow stay afloat.
Now, for those who think the Congressman was just kidding, due to the ultra-high levels of dumb and even dumber, there's this:
The Admiral in this clip should get an award for his unparalleled ability at not falling over in insane, body convulsive, laughter when confronted with unashamed hyper-stupidity. If this guy were a Republican, he would have been long gone or worse.
Maybe it's simply Hank's congressional district:
That would explain much.....
