Patrick Stewart, the human more commonly known as X-Men's Professor Charles Xavier or Star Trek's Captain Jean-Luc Picard, has a breaking news announcement. Which is why he has turned to Twitter, a social media platform used exclusively for breaking news announcements.

And he's set his phaser to stun for this one. As in, you're going to be stunned after you hear it.

"My first ever pizza 'slice'. Please note: the authentic NY fold," Sir Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) tweeted alongside this photo.

OK, let's break this down: First of all, why is slice in quotes? Does this mean that he's maybe never eaten one single slice ("slice") of pizza before, but has eaten an entire pizza whole?

And is there an unauthentic New York fold? A bootlegged N.Y. fold, if you will? And is there a council that met to decide the Rules and Regulations of the Authentic N.Y. Fold or is this more of a mafia thing?

And how has Patrick Stewart gone his entire life, all 72 years of that life, without ever encountering and consequently eating, a piece of pizza? What is he?! A...mutant?

(See what we did there?)
