Attacker Tries to Hit Rupert Murdoch With Pie?

Amidst the News Corp. hearing comes even more insanity. Breaking news: A man attempts to attack Rupert Murdoch with...a pie? A tin filled with foam? The wannabe attacker was attacked by Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng, who "slammed him in the face." He, then, was escorted out by police with something white all over his face. This all seems quite the metaphor for something. (Murdoch has been commended for continuing on in the circumstances.)

Here is the apparent attacker's last Tweet:

Jonnie Marbles, a/k/a Jonathan May-Bowles, is a British comedian related to UK Uncut, though Uncut is denying involvement with this action.

Marbles' ex-girlfriend had this to say.

Back at the hearing: "Mr. Murdoch, your wife has a very good left hook," says member of Parliament. Wow. That happened.

Too bad they couldn't fill the pie pan with shame. 


This just made me feel slightly less annoyed about being art directed by someone who isn't anymore near qualified to do so.

No, it has to be (slapstick) pie.  It's a belgian/french thing, to pie annoying figureheads, from Bill Gates down.
