Today, Patrick Stewart Ate His First Slice of Pizza

Patrick stewart pizzaA momentous, and seemingly impossible, event occurred today in New York City: Patrick Stewart, the 72-year-old actor, ate his first ever slice of pizza.

Stewart tweeted:

 My first ever pizza "slice". Please note: the authentic NY fold. 

New York Magazine adds:

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 New York and Los Angeles – 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.

Congratulations, Mr. Stewart. And here's to many, many more slices.
