Bloomberg, Shaq and One to Grow On

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Shaquille O’Neil appeared together at P.S. 189 in Manhattan this morning to talk about improving nutrition for students.

As the big man and the little man stood side-by-side for a photo op, the mayor’s spokesman, Stu Loeser, noticed the smirking reporters and jokingly told them to “shut up, shut up, shut up.”

Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs told Loeser not to say “shut up” in front of the audience of elementary school kids. “You’re right,” he answered.
