Horse Jizz Pie Flinging Editor Hates On Pope

We don't know how many of you follow the New York media (incestuous, self-absorbed cesspool that it is - that's why we love it!) so in case you missed it, New York Press Editor-in-Chief Matt Taibbi was fired yesterday for his article "The 52 Funniest Things About the Upcoming Death of the Pope."

Blah blah fucking blah. Who gives a shit, right?

Well, we didn't really either. But the NY Post (that paragon of highbrow journalism) reported that this wasn't the first time Matt got the NY Media all riled up. The Post reports that "In 2001, while editor of the wacky, ex-pat magazine the Exile, Taibbi burst into the Moscow office of The New York Times and flung a cream pie filled with horse sperm into the face of bureau chief Michael Wines."

So many questions to ask! Did he fly all the way to Moscow just to fling the jizz pie? How did he sneak into the building carrying a jizz pie unnoticed? Where do you get a horse jizz pie? (That must be a lot of horse jizz!) Did he make the pie in Russia or did he make it in NY and get it onto the plane somehow? Was he tempted to taste it? And Michael, since you were on the receiving end of that facial, how did it taste?

Now if we could get the New York media to answer those questions, we'd finally have some news that's fit to print.
