Remembering Finest Pizza's wounded pizza mascot

Every so often I do that feature titled Posts That I Never Got Around to Posting (such as this one!)... usually an item that I found of interest, but never pursued. Or forgot about. I found the following in my drafts folder... this one becomes timely given the closure this week of the Finest Pizza and Deli on Avenue B...

You recall their (generic) pizza mascot...



As a reader passed along in the spring, a vandal ripped of his right arm....



...and discarded it a short distance away...



But! Abdul and company were able to reattach it...




I wonder what will happen to our wounded pizza man now that the store is closed?

He deserves a memorial service.

That picture of him with his arm off made me think of the old Fugitive TV series. You should investigate and see what they're going to do with him. It would be a shame to retire him.

Abdul told a trusted reader that they were closing up for good on Sunday.... Curious why he would tell people that...
