In Your Face!

I read this in the paper this morning and it made me chuckle. I thought you might find it funny as well, enjoy.

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Revenge may well be a dish, or at least a pie, best served cold.
A People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protest was on the receiving end of a pieing on Friday.
Emily Lavender stood outside a hotel where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was slated to talk Friday before meeting with Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams.
Dressed as a seal and protesting the hunt, Ms. Lavender was accosted by the dog mascot for Downhome Magazine who came up behind Lavender and pulled her around, tripping her in the process. Her seal head went flying and, as the dog mascot helped pull Lavender up, he pied her in the face and ran off down the street.
Ms. Lavender was fine. She wiped her face and went back to protesting, holding a sign that said: 'Harper Stop the Seal Slaughter.'
But that wasn't the only protest Ms. Lavender had to face. Earlier a man dressed in a large, fuzzy seal costume stood next to her and peeled off the outfit to reveal a T-shirt with a local radio station's logo on the front.
Ms. Lavender took the joke in stride. When asked how she felt about the prank, she said that Canadians were embarrassed by the seal hunt.
Earlier this week, PETA took credit for pieing Fisheries Minister Gail Shea.
Here is the actual video of it from YouTube.
