Cream pie

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has copped a pie in the face while speaking at a business breakfast in Perth.

Mr Joyce was three minutes into his speech when an elderly man appeared from behind him with a cream pie.

The attacker, aged in his late 60s or early 70s, grabbed Mr Joyce and pushed the dessert into the chief executives face, the West Australian reported.

Security staff quickly grabbed the man off stage. It remains unclear why Mr Joyce was targeted

.. small cake fork and spoon would have done the clean up trick quite nicely, one thinks.

Reminds me of a DCA operational desk audit years ago with a freight carrier. The CP was asked how he would approach the "carriage of weapons with dangerous animals" requirement for a load of crayfish ..

Keith, in his rather laconic manner, replied along the lines that "oh, I think we will manage quite well with our safety provisions of plates, forks, and worstershire sauce .."

The bent little leprechaun copped a lemon meringue to the fizzog, serves him right.

On a side note and despite the humour, it could have been more sinister. Where's his security? If you can get up and whack him with a pie, what's stopping someone from using something with a bit more bang?

Despite what some may think, he's just a bloke doing a job the way he thinks is the best way. He's making plenty of cash compared to the competition. I think he will probably remembered as reasonable CEO that upset a lot of people but righted the ship and grew it.

Hahaha, closely followed by Atlas Shrugged who also pushed the boundaries


GG has a point re the security. The little fella is going to chuck a massive hissy fit behind the scenes, being publicly embarrassed like that. Some one is going to get 'reamed' for that .

I dunno whether any of the mods would know what a 'cream pie' is?

Well you see atlas shrugged raises a good question. From some of the movies I have seen it can be both.

Double entendre's abound seriously funny on so many levels..

Cream pies...


It is not that long ago that Joyce decided 80,000 passengers didn't matter...
Some people remember.

What is striking is that presumably this person paid to attend. It was not a university student, rather according to media reports a 60 odd year old man, who presumably had not come to the notice of authorities previously...

Wonder if Joyce still has the hastily abandoned 'death threat' statement BS from 2011. Establishing a nexus might be difficult Alan...

The answer to your question is NOTHING.

What do you expect, they have shot two US presidents and a pope, little chance for anyone from a determined assailant. It is just like airport security, mostly feel good theatre for the masses.
