NEW YORK (AP) - How do you pick up women when
you're the mayor of New York City?
That's what Jon Stewart wanted to know from
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, his guest on Comedy Central's "The
Daily Show" Wednesday night.
Stewart asked Bloomberg, who's a bachelor,
which lines he uses: '"Good evening, I am the mayor of one of
the greatest cities in the world,' or 'My name is Mike and I
run a 24-hour information network?'"
"Whatever works," Bloomberg replied,
Stewart also asked the mayor, a reported
billionaire, about opting not to live in the official residence,
"You must have a nice house to be able
to say, 'That mansion? Ehhh,'" Stewart said, to which Bloomberg
laughed and said, "Suffice it to say, I'm comfortable."
Bloomberg later reiterated his recent mantra
that New York is the "safest big city in the country" and mentioned
that the most that ever happens to him during his daily commute
to City Hall on subway trains is being asked for his autograph.
