Boris Yeltsin Pie With Everything On It
The tale emerges from the new Clinton bio by Taylor Branch, who tells how the former Russian prez got royally (or democratically) sloshed while visiting Bill Clinton at the White House in 1995. Yeltsin somehow slipped out of Blair House where he was staying and made it out onto Pennsylvania Avenue in his boxers before Secret Service agents spotted him trying to flag down a cab. He wanted, the spirited Russkie explained in gloriously slurred words, a pizza.
There was one more escape attempt: "The next night," the paper reports, "Yeltsin eluded security forces again when he climbed down back stairs to the Blair House basement. A building guard took Yeltsin for a drunken intruder until Russian and U.S. agents arrived on the scene and rescued him."
