Bloomberg Backpedals Ass Comment, Claims 'I Never Said It'

Might not love big butts after all.
Earlier this week, we told you about New York magazine's cover story on Christine Quinn, in which writer Jonathan Van Meter reported that Mayor Bloomberg said, "Look at the ass on her," while admiring a party guest.

But now, the mayor denies that he said anything of the sort. The Observer reports that, when asked about the off-color comment, Bloomberg stated, "I never said it, and I don't know where it came from." He also told a reporter, "That's an outrage for you to say," when asked if this was just another incident in his long history of sexist comments.

He did not, however, retract his compliment to Joe Biden's balls, which he commended for their sturdiness and duality.

Falling On My Ass At the High Line Roller Rink After Hours

Esther Zuckerman
At the roller rink birthday parties of my youth there were always the people I like to call "the show-offs." They would skate laps around everyone, do tricks and put the rest of us, clinging onto the railing, trying to stay upright, to shame.

I was prepared to meet some of these people when I headed out to the High Line's new roller rink for their first Saturday night 21+ skate.

What's Up The Jews' Asses on Yom Kippur?

butt out jews.jpg
Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement for The Jews -- of which New York City has many -- is coming at this city faster than a first-time Brooklyn Tornado. For some Jews, it can't come fast enough -- funny, because The Jews fast on Yom Kippur -- which has something to do with why some Jews in New York are reportedly putting things up their asses before Yom Kippur. Sound sacrilegious? Well, it's not.

Introducing Big Booty Theater Seats, Booty Jamz, and the "Summer of Ass"

ny city center.jpg
For every action, there's a reaction -- as Americans get fatter, theater seats get wider. New York City Center is one of many performing arts centers around the country that are increasing seat width and providing more leg room so that people can take their big booties to the theater without an uncomfortably squished bum. They started a renovation project in April to accommodate our average increased hind-width, which has gone from 19 inches to 21 inches over the course of the century, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Is 2010 New York City, America's "Summer of Ass"?

The times, they change. The ebb and flow of the universe is simply something to be generally understood as such, and nothing more. For every action, there's an equal reaction. And for every physics law, there's a metaphysical plane to apply it to that generally shows its face when you look at it from the right direction at a certain point. Like this one. From behind. In other words:

In 2009, New York City, and the rest of America had the Summer of Death.

In 2010, New York City, and the rest of America has the Summer of Ass.
