Paul: Pie in the Face…

…who do you think needs one?

I recently found this awesome video of old-school gay-hater Anita Bryant getting a pie in the face.

I kind of think it’s an amazing form of protest. It’s such a simple way to humiliate someone in public, though it is pretty risky these days. Back in 2004 two men threw pies at Ann Coulter during a speech at the University of Arizona and were charged with criminal damage, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and assault. I don’t know what ultimately happened to them, but I’d guess they go a plea bargain for probation or something like that. They called themselves “al pieda”. I think if large groups started showing up at events like this and everyone threw pies it would be too much of a hassle to charge them all. I would kill to see Laura Bush get one, or maybe Bill O’reilly. Who do you think deserves the pie treatent???

    LAURA Bush? Really? I mean, she’s not my favorite person in current events, but…
    I’m wondering if your motivation is to see pie on her meticulous haircut.
    Because (fruit) pie certainly didn’t help Anita’s meticulous haircut.

    So Mr. Bryant was all prayer-ful when the cameras were rolling,
    but vengeful when they weren’t. What a surprise.

    I always thought the political pie protest was invented by some Belgian guy
    in the late-80s/ early-90s. Guess not! Help, oh Wikipedia!


    Aha, there was a Belgian… and speaking of Tom Cruise, seems M. Godin had a
    bit of an anti-Scientologist thing going on. Wonder if he’d pie Beck? (Beck
    doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously, Sea Change aside.)
