A Brief History of Successful Celebrity Bombings

Muntader al-Zaidi, the ballsy Iraqi journalist who this weekend hurled a pair of of shoes at George W Bush while screaming, "Here is your goodbye kiss, dog," hadn't accounted for Dubya's amazing reflexes. Remember, Bush assailants: when you ruin the world, you begin to anticipate shit flying at you.

Many other public figures haven't been as prepared. After the jump, a video collection of successful projectile attacks on celebrities (and one we really, really wish would have hit the mark).

Jean Chretien a ou une pie CRASHER sur son visage, aussi!
I do not dig these "activists." What? When someone does something wrong, do something wrong BACK? Ann would probably just use the incident to jusitify her hate, right? Why can't I just enjoy shit like this anymore? I only enjoyed how the girl who threw the flour on Lindsay looked like she couldn't believe she succeeded and ran away like a little elf. A deviant lil elf with a funny accent. Hee hee.

I am offended CNN labeled Coulter a journalist.
That word officially means nothing now.

Not at all impressed with any of those idiots. They obviously have a limited capacity to communicate their frustration, throwing pies or whatever, at someone because you disagree with them only makes the thrower look childish and ignorant.

I love how you goofballs approach the topic of Pie-ing as an abstract moral question, as if you're scholling a five year old. Pffft, see where that gets you. If the media can be misused by politicians w/o question, then it can also occasionally be misused to humilaite and embarrass these dickholes also.

Think harder, moralists!

I agree Ilnazhad. Yes, it draws attention to their cause (in some cases), but it ultimately makes them look like childish fools. The Bush shoe incident is a little different because of the cultural implications, but it still doesn't make it right.

And Cord, I miss you. I can't believe Jossip redirected Mollygood over here. I can't even look back over the old site to enjoy the good old days. :-(
