Marty’s fixie can’t support the sheer weight of his after-State-of-the-Borough-Address-snack, so he brought his tricycle instead.

Matzo-Brie and… APPLE JUICE!? Shirley, you can’t be serious.

Celebrity reader Daniel Goldstein — yes, THAT Daniel Goldstein! — sent in this shot from the Daily News of Marty eating a snack. Note that snack-time is a two plate minimum.And what a story! The paper reports that the borough president has vowed to donate $1-million to build a giant food-themed mega-super-culinary-dome-plex so that everyone, everywhere can eat. After Marty, of course.

Reader submission!Marty may have been caught stealing (and would later face punishment for) a red velvet cupcake, but who could turn down a photo op with the borough president? It’d be like a cop actually ticketing John Lithgow for double parking. Yeah, right.

The Feast of Sacrifice: an annual mandatory peace offering of meat given to the borough president. Sadly, this year’s offering was rejected because it wasn’t cooked yet.

MARTY LOVES THIS BLOG!

Finally, someone at the Post asked the borough president if he enjoys the work we do. His message is clear:

Markowitz … laughed off the blog posting, saying, "It’s all in good fun." 

"It will make it much more difficult to perform my charter-required borough president duty of sampling Brooklyn’s great food and boosting our culinary economy — while keeping it a secret from my wife Jamie, whose computer will almost certainly provide the most ‘hits’ for this blog," he said.

Nobody puts it better than the man himself. Marty tells Grub Street:

“They don’t foist food on me at events, but the minute I walk in, I see it. It calls me over — ‘Marty.’ I have to fight myself not to go over. If I have a bite, there will be another bite and another bite and another bite.”
