"My first ever pizza 'slice'. Please note: the authentic NY fold," the Park Sloper tweeted today. How is this possible?

We don't know. It is incomprehensible that a man — particularly one who has spent much of his adult life in Los Angeles and New York — could go 72 years without ever consuming a single slice of pizza. Stewart does emphasize the word slice in his tweet, so perhaps he's eaten plenty of whole pizzas. Still, though. You'd really have to go out of your way to pull that off. One guy we know went so long without having tried pie that "not eating pie" became sort of his thing, and he embraced it, but we doubt that's what's going on here. Anyway, congrats, and nice technique on the fold.

Update, 3:02 p.m.: Stewart met his wife at Franny's, which does not do slices

Update, 10:02 p.m.: Stewart tweeted a "clarification" that still fails to really explain how this happened:

Update, May 30: Stewart spoke to Daily Intelligencer about his pizza history.
