A Pie for Mr. Murdoch

The Mrs. says no way Jose and literally saves face for Rupert Murdoch, or to be precise,  saves his face from whatever is in that “cream pie”.

It’s pretty sad when someone a foot smaller and pounds lighter than you can thwart your efforts to smack her husband in the face with a cream pie.

However, it wasn’t a total loss.  The stock market took off today and News Corp. shares were up 5.2%.  It was later learned that the good news on Wall Street had little to do with an attempted pie in the face of the elderly billionaire and more to do with rumors that he may step aside following the hacking scandal by Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid and the GOP and the President have come to an agreement about the debt ceiling.

Save that cream pie for Obama fella, would you?  The plan that the President and Congressional leaders have agreed on that has excited the markets is one that says he would overhaul entitlement programs such as Medicare and make significant changes to Social Security.

Murdoch could have gladly taken a pie in the face for this because there was no indication that his taxes he doesn’t pay anyway will go up.

  1. This has nothing to do with the point of your post, which was great by the way, but I love the face on the chick in the middle of the photo. I think that is pure, pure shock!

    1. Yes Stephanie, I saw that too. I suppose there’s a post for that somewhere on this boards. 🙂

    2. The guys expression to her right looks as though he’s trying to figure out if it’s cream or custard pie. If you look closely you can see him drooling.

  2. My wife would have helped. Helped to make the pie and then helped to hit me with it. Then again, I’m not a billionaire am I? Dang it!

    1. She was just defending her inheritance. Either that or outrage that someone would treat their elders with such disrespect. But then Murdoch has dissed quite a few people himself.
