Teachable moment?

  • mickeyco

    She must be a very nice woman. I’d have belted him.

  • Clete Torres

    Not enough concrete in the pie that hit Fallon, clearly.

  • dirt poor

    Why do people play those stupid games with him? He acts like he’s 8 years old.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Pies for throwing, CHECK!
    Clowns for hitting, CHECK!
    Big top tent………..well it looks like there are white tents in the background, so…….CHECK!
    NBC – National Broadcasting Circus…….. yep…… no surprises here

    In other news……….. Rosie O’Donnell is up in arms that such pies are being wasted and demands they either be sent to her or face a court ordered cease and desist

    The eye irritation was clearly due to racism.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    I wonder if Slate will get a case of the vapors over the use of “Red” to describe Guthrie’s eye?

    Lesson learned: Don’t inhale pie, snort it or put in your eyes

    That’s some lesson. Shouldn’t her mother have taught her that about 40 years ago? Must be a slower learner.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Eating the pie is good.

    This is the tool taking over The Tonight Show. The F@#$ing Tonight Show! Johnny Carson must be rolling in his grave.

    • Bozo Sapien

      Doesn’t matter. The Tonight Show ceased to exist as soon as Carson retired.

  • TocksNedlog

    Now if somebody at NBC was smart (I know, I know) they would set it up for Savannah to get her revenge during his FIRST episode of The Tonight Show.

    Soupy Sales probably could have taught her a thing or two about how to take a pie in the face.

  • stellatruman

    she gets injured a little too often on the job. She’s clearly a liability and they should let her go

  • Maxx

    Cry me a river.

    Our entire country, since Jan 2009, thanks to the starry-eyed left, has had one heaping dose of lemming meringue pie thrown at its face.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Fallon is so clever.

  • Keith

    Pie in the face was funny oh about NEVER!!!

  • andycanuck

    When will the federal government regulate pie-tossing!!!
    For the children. :(

  • Insubordinate

    Will Obamacare cover her injury?
