If you've been watching "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" lately, you've noticed that Jon has gotten into one of his classic feuds—this time, over pizza. More specifically, with the city of Chicago over whether its deep-dish pizza has the right to call itself true pizza.

Last night, a truce was finally called:

We're not gonna take it. No, we ain't gonna take it.

Jon, you gabagool. Everyone knows that New Haven-style thin-crust pizza makes New York City's pizza slices look like wads of flaccid rubber. Just because the slices the NYC pizzerias turn out are big enough to sail us to Italy doesn't mean they're better than the pizza produced at Pepe's, or Sally's, or Modern Apizza. Or even many of the thin-crust pizzerias outside of New Haven proper: Johnny's in Brooklyn, Mondo in Middletown, Pizzeria Marzano in Torrington—in fact, most of the pizzerias that made our list in the September issue's "Best of Connecticut."

We think it's time to declare war. Tweet those clowns @TheDailyShow and let them know what's what. Heck, ship them a pie or two. It's time New Haven asserted its rightful place in the pizza hierarchy: No. 1.

On the other hand, bagels? We'll concede that one: NYC Rules!
