My hair was a little crazy whilst I was in the middle of getting dressed-drying my hair this morning. And I hadn’t drunk any coffee yet. Paul and I were, at the time, chatting about the now infamous shaving foam “pie” incident of yesterday in which Rupert Murdoch got only a fraction of what should really be heading his way:
Then Paul saw my t-shirt and we suddenly started wondering about what Charlie Sheen would have done had he been in the committee meeting yesterday discussing how much senior figures of News International knew about what was going on at the News of the World and elsewhere. What follows is a rendering of a pre-coffee conversation.
The general consensus between Paul and I was there would have been a pie-less scene involving Charlie Sheen suddenly striding over to Murdoch – Sheen high on the Tiger’s Blood – whilst waving a machete around, yet all attending (including security) being so surprised by what is happening that it would have taken them a while to react. Sheen wouldn’t have actually done anything, but the scene would have been enough to cause Murdoch senior to have pissed and shat himself within a matter of nano seconds.
I also suspect that Wendi Deng would have then run off with Mr Sheen, but this is all a theory at this point. Though I’m pretty sure there is an alternate reality where this version of yesterday’s events did play out.
At the end of the day, the lesson here is that people shouldn’t discuss vaguely important political events prior to having their first caffeine dose of the day. And I’m in support of what Jonnie Marbles did.
