John Stewart is in deep (dish) trouble in Chicago. After his Chicago-focused rant on Wednesday night's "Daily Show", he may have lost numerous viewers from the Windy City. His rant was in response to the anger surrounding the decision to name the new One World Trade Center the tallest building in America, over the current title holder, Chicago's Willis Tower, according to CBS.

Stewart's rant lasted over 6 minutes and made fun of Chicago’s homicide rate, Chicago’s weather and Chicago style hot dogs, but in all fairness, Chicago started it, according to the New York Post, by going and insulting New York's famous thin crust pizza. Watch the hilarious ranting:

He began his rant by insulting Chicago's famous deep dish pizza. “Deep dish pizza is not only not better than New York pizza, it’s not pizza.” It went downhill from there. He called it “[expletive] casserole,” “a cornbread biscuit,” and “tomato soup in a bread bowl.”

Nice. Unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. There's also this wordy jewel, "When I look at your deep dish (expletive) pizza, I don't know whether to eat it or throw a coin in it and make a wish," Stewart said. "And if I made a wish, it would be that I'd wish for some real (expletive) pizza."

He screams, “It’s a cornbread biscuit which you’ve melted cheese on and then — in defiance of God and man and all things holy — you poured uncooked marinara sauce atop the cheese. Atop! The sauce, naked, cold on display like some sort of sauce whore!”

In response to Stewart's rant, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had a little jab of his own.

So the tower thing has come to blows. We shall see how this plays out! Who do you think will win the war of the cities?
