While Supervisor Chris Daly was left with a little figurative egg on his face following some of his more off-color comments at his farewell roast last night, roaster C.W. Nevius was left with literal chunks of pie trickling down his suit jacket.
After stepping off the stage, the Chronicle columnist was confronted by an unidentified short woman wielding an aluminum pie plate heaped with white cream. Nevius saw the pie attack coming, and grabbed the woman's hand as she tossed the projectile, causing it to merely glance off his shoulder.
“It was a progressive pie, so it went way left,” said Nevius.
