Terroir Pledges Allegiance to Chris Cannon
In the wake of the Chris Cannon/Michael White divorce, the merry pranksters at Terroir have made their allegiances very clear with a tribute to "our hero" Chris Cannon so hilariously unsparing it makes Ricky Gervais's Golden Globes commentary look like a Hallmark card.
Cannon's years as a successful general manager and his "never say die attitude" are contrasted with White's "CV," which comprises "living on his parent's couch in Beloit, Wisconsin, ... before Chris brought him back to NYC." Ouch. Also ouch: "[Altamarea CEO] Ahmass Fakahany's CV: Overseeing risk management and the manufacturing and selling of mortgage-backed securities at Merrill Lynch during the 2000s, causing the firm to declare a loss of $2.3 billion in 2007." To which one can only add: touché.
