Mike Bloomberg has had 1,963 invitations in just two months

Talk about having a busy schedule! Mayor Michael Bloomberg - or perhaps the more accurate name, Mayor Popularity - has received almost two thousand invitations to events all around the country in just two months.

From the exhaustive list of invites, which included the Dalai Lama's birthday, he only chose 45 - and this small list didn't include His Holiness' birthday.

According to the New York Post article which reported on his popularity with regard to New York City events, Mr Bloomberg, who made billions in the financial data industry before entering politics, has a thing for accepting invites from kids.

Last month, the article read, Councilman Dominic Recchia's three daughters wrote the mayor asking if he would pose for a picture with them and a cardboard cutout of Flat Stanley, a children's character. He agreed to do it. [NYP]
