Mika Brzezinski and the "Morning Joe" crew had another hilarious tussle about food on Monday.
Before delving into Mitt Romney's potential picks for vice-presidential candidates, Politico's Mike Allen and Willie Geist touched on the size of 7-11's Big Gulp.
Brzezinski said that she had a "bad Super Big Gulp story," but Scarborough told her he didn't "want to hear it." The two have vastly different philosophies about food, which have given rise to a spirited debate about Twinkies and even an MSNBC ad for the show. Brzezinski follows a famously strict regimen of diet and exercise, while Scarborough drools over Dreamland ribs.
As her cohorts discussed 7-11's expansion in New York City, Brzezinski attempted to talk over the din. "People are drinking themselves and eating themselves to death," she said.
Then, Scarborough remembered that he had heard rumors that Chick-Fil-A would be building more outposts in Manhattan as well. Geist said that he hoped they were true. Brzezinski, however, disagreed.
"Maybe they could do it without frying the chicken," she said. Her remark elicited exasperated sighs from the entire panel.
