I dunno whether any of the mods would know what a 'cream pie' is?
Of course!! :ok: Betty Crocker Cream Pie Recipes

Ex FSO GRIFFO - classic! :} :ok:

Some of the best responses I've seen in years are in this thread!

Probably a VA shareholder
Wrong guy I'm afraid.

Regardless, its an assault so i hope the book is thrown at the pie thrower.

Well, the thread title was certainly an attention getter. 19 replies and over 2000 viewers...probably disappointed!

Cream pie
I'm surprised that it's taken this long for something like this to happen.
After the COMPLETELY unnessary grounding by Joyce, I thought some action from badly affected pax would have occurred first.

Religious zealot??
My coin is on this bein the rezult of a religious zealot reading stories like this and reacting to his feelingz impotent regarding the mainstream acceptance of "diversity"

Regardless of what people think of him, I thought it was disgusting. If you can't make an argument or challenge someone with words and intelligence then don't resort to violence. Didn't think it was funny at all, although some of the responses on here are, but rather, just a dick head making an idiot of himself.
Apparently he dealt with it with some humor, after cleaning his face and shedding his jacket he said to the audience "OK, if there's any more pies can we please get them over with now before I start again"

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

Obviously, some elderly staffer, did not appreciate the ring.

So throwing a harmless lemon meringue pie is a heinous assault, but throwing the book is warranted?

He's lucky he didn't cop a shoe!*

*Probably wouldn't need to duck to avoid it, though...
