He can ‘handle’ cannoli comp

Last Thursday’s cannoli-eating contest in Little Italy at the Feast of San Genarro got pretty hairy, at least for this guy, above. The chomp comp was sponsored by Ferrara bakery and sanctioned by the International Federation of Professional Eaters — which apparently is still resisting a badly needed ban on handlebar moustaches. On Saturday, former Governor Mario Cuomo and Matilda Cuomo presided as grand marshals at the San Gennaro procession, which featured four floats, two Fiat cars, local favorites the Red Mike Band, plus two other marching bands. The festival began Sept. 12 and runs through Sept. 22 on Mulberry St.
