Pie in the face - February 4, 1998
Bill Gates received a pie in the face as he entered a meeting hosted by Flemish Minister and President Van den Brande. Gates responded mildly saying
the pie, "just wasn't that good." Says Noel Godin, "This man told us he really loved Bill Gates in the past, saying that he was very cool and
passionate. But little by little he considered that his power had tainted him, and that he was becoming more and more haughty with his own
collaborators. So the man who gave us the information considered, and he's not alone, that it wouldn't be bad to teach Bill a lesson, to bring him
back to reality. That's how he explained to us why he was doing it. He's far from being a member of our band, he's not an anarchist and he likes
his work with Microsoft, but he thought it had to happen." See: Let's Pie! Let's Pie! - an interview with Noel Godin, TIME Digital, June 16, 1998
It was a prank. Even Bill Gates laughed it off and he didnt press charges on the guy. This is just stupid that they're attempting to throw the book
at the two guys for an immature prank.
If Moore was hit by a pie i'd laugh. If it was Sean Penn I'd laugh. I'd just plain laugh whatever the occasion because it's funny, it's also good
to see a celebrity at their worst whatever their political affiliation.
