I'LL TAKE CREAM, PLEASE

posted October 10, 2011

This week you've seen CEO Walter Kermani fumble his way through a number of press conferences, all in an attempt to defend his company Heather Farms, whose cheese is at fault for the elementary school listeria outbreak. But every time a camera's been pointed at him, he's looked like a deer-in-the-headlights. That look doesn't work for the deer either. The Big Cheese followed up a slight apology with another interview where he pointed the finger at the other foods on the cafeteria trays and even turned that finger towards the victims. We're surprised he hasn't blamed the vegans yet.

But today he got a little comeuppance as CEO Kermani made a sympathetic appearance at a gathering for the victims -- and was promptly smacked in the face with a cream pie. (Wouldn't cheesecake have been the natural choice here?)

So readers, what do you think? Does a pie to the mug redeem the Big Cheese?
