So now Jews are fighting about pizza. Because we really needed one more thing about which to get Uncle Morty upset this Thanksgivukkah.

The Jews in question here are two of the most well-known in the nation: Jon Stewart and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

And the pizza in question is Chicago Deep Dish, specifically the anchovy-topped deep dish pizzas Emanuel sent Stewart and his staff, following Stewart’s rant on Tuesday’s The Daily Show about how disgusting he finds Chicago-style pizza.

The Stewart faction’s was absolutely not going to take that lying down. Here’s their reaction:

The fact that the segment was actually about the small tiff Chicago having over the Willis Tower losing out on the “tallest tower” award to New York’s Freedom Tower is pretty much a moot point now.

Watch Stewart’s amazing if totally incorrect rant again, just because you should.
