Only in New York City... Cup-O-Pizza

I wasn't even drunk, so I have no excuses.

It consisted of a cup, lined with pre-cooked crust. As you ordered your toppings, it was swabbed with pizza sauce, much like you do a sandwich, with mayo & a knife.

Then, the mystery meat, brown mushrooms, and limp onions were dumped into the cup, and a handful of garlic added---no doubt for it's anti-bacterial qualities. Lastly, hot, fluorescent orange "cheese" was poured over the mixture.

The immigrant cart vendor, then takes your $10, and gives you a plastic fork, that breaks upon first use. No prob, Cup-O-Pizza, can be consumed as a hot beverage as well.

The contents take the characteristics, of a slow-moving tsunami of glowing sludge, as it approaches your portal, and suddenly a fear that what goes in must come out strikes you.

Your fear is justified...

Though the cup is sans any mention of Cup-O-Pizza, is does state "Please Pray For A Kurdish Homeland."

Only in New York City...

    I thought this only existed in Steve Martin's movie The Jerk.

        Please provide a location of this place. It sounds so disgusting, that I NEED to go check it out for curiosity's sake.

            Cup-O-Pizza I'm sure has long since become gastronomic history. This was years ago, and I don't know NYC well, but it was close to this bar, which believe me, was an adventure in itself!!!:

            My mind (and bowels) were forced to bring this past, long surpressed memory to light, because of the "Worst Pizza" thread I stumbled upon.

              Marie: You live here? Oh, it’s nice. Did you decorate it?
              Navin: Yeah, I got all this stuff from the old Cup ‘o Pizza place before they tore it down.
              Marie: Good pizza. (the two of them are eating pizza in a cup)
              Navin: Oh, this is the best pizza in a cup ever. This guy is unbelievable. He ran the old Cup ‘o Pizza guy out of business. People come from all over to eat this.
