How to throw a pie in someone's face:

“You can use whipped cream, egg whites or shaving cream, but shaving cream is much better because it doesn’t spoil. And no tin plates. The secret is you just can’t push it and shove it in somebody’s face. It has to be done with a pie that has a lot of crust so that it breaks up into a thousand pieces when it hits you.”

-Soupy Sales, slapstick comedian who died Thursday at the age of 83, and knew the importance of using the right kind of pie. “One of my younger fans made the mistake of heaving a frozen pie at me before it defrosted,” he once wrote in The New York Journal-American. “It caught me in the neck and I dropped like a pile of bricks.”

The Hater - Rwanda (not Amelie Gillette)

Hates people who...

…talk with a lot of conviction about things they know not about.
Just last week I heard someone convincingly talking about how delicious some chapattis are.

We were all so moved by his conviction but when we tried to find out more about the chapattis the joker revealed that he had actually never tasted them but was only told by someone else!

The anger I had then is still so strong even as I write this. Why would someone put so much energy in an ignorance-laden endeavour? Was he being paid by someone or what? I cannot stop hating such guys.

Click here to read more opinions from The Hater, a writer for the Sunday Times in Rwanda.

When did an "Act of Congress" become as unlikely as an "Act of God"?
