The Associated Press reported that the bill for breakfast – eggs, toast and bacon – came out to $17.34. Mr. Obama, the non-billionaire of the bunch, picked up the tab and left a generous $10 tip, according to their waitress, Judith Perez. (Photo: Diane Bondareff/Associated Press)

obama and bloomberg meet to discuss policy in a nice little “hey we still eat at normal-people-places” photo-op. the caption says that obama bought bacon, but as you will see below, we do not know who ate said bacon. perhaps they shared the bacon? i also wonder who picked this coffee shop and if they had any awkward footsie moments, as that looks like quite a small table they’re sitting at. (check the embedded video for some funny chit chat between the photogs hovering outside the window).

nytimes:

At the New York Luncheonette on East 50th Street, Mr. Obama ate eggs over easy and wheat toast, while the mayor had scrambled eggs and white toast.

Well, if Obama is a Muslim as suggested, he surely didn’t eat the bacon. And if Bloomberg is a Jew as many say, he didn’t eat the bacon. mmmmmm maybe they were trying to snow us. By the way, Obama looks bored and Bloomberg looks amused.

I just might be able to handle a smart old Jewish guy mentoring a bright young black guy.

If the young one would only defer.
