Mayor de Blasio Performed a Dramatic Reading of That Onion Blizzard Story

In an apparent attempt to lighten the mood after today’s total blizzard bust, Mayor Bill de Blasio decided to reward the City Hall press corps with a special treat. “I’m going to do a dramatic reading from The Onion,” de Blasio told the reporters gathered in Room 9. He then whipped out a print-out of yesterday’s Onion story “NYC Mayor: Reconcile Yourselves With Your God, for All Will Perish in the Tempest,” and did just that.

Update: Here’s the audio of this historic event:
