Moneybags announced 4,666 layoffs of NYC public school teachers despite a billion dollar increase in tax revenue beyond what was expected for 2011.
Many people want to know where Bloomberg got that number from?
It is an odd one, after all - it's not 4,600 or even 4,660.
Uh, uh - it's 4,666.
Well, we here at Perdido Street School have figured out why he chose that EXACT figure.
Apparently when he looks in the mirror in the morning, Bloomberg sees the number 666 branded into his head with brimstone.
So that's where that number came from.
And the 4,000 figure?
That one he pulled out of his ass.
Along with is choice of Cathie Black as schools chancellor and his handling of the Bloomberg Blizzard of 2010.
Here is video of Bloomberg announcing the 4,666 layoffs:
I didn't realize Bloomberg wore so much leather.
