    Nice act of propaganda of the deed but difficult to perform with all those security and bodyguards getting in the way - tried it some years before on the bavarian "landes"-father edmund stoiber (ultra-christdemocrat), failed badly and went up for three weeks for "dangerous attack"... the court case was suspended, thanks to some local support i got.
    a bit more lucky and really famous was this one, i took inspiration from it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kommune_1

    "The "Pudding Assassination"
    As the domestic commune life was too boring, the communards decided to turn their internal experience into actions.
    The first of these was the "pudding assassination" of US Vice-President Hubert Humphrey who was scheduled to visit Berlin. On the evening of April 2, 1967, the communards met in Johnson's apartment with about 20 other people whom they knew from demonstrations. Kunzelmann presented his plan of throwing smoke bombs in the direction of the Vice President on the occasion of the state visit. None of the others besides Langhans wanted to participate.
    Police files indicate that the planned attack was revealed by a secret service agent, since eleven students were arrested by officials of Division I (Political Police) on April 5, 1967. They were supposed to have met under conspiratorial conditions and planned attacks against the life or health of Hubert Humphrey by means of bombs, plastic bags filled with unknown chemicals, or with other dangerous tools, such as stones.
    Those arrested were Ulrich Enzensberger, Volker Gebbert, Klaus Gilgenmann, Hans-Joachim Hameister, Wulf Krause, Dieter Kunzelmann, Rainer Langhans and Fritz Teufel. The tabloid Bild's headline was "Humphrey to be assassinated", the weekly Zeit spoke of "Eleven little Oswalds". Even the New York Times featured a report on the dangerous plan of eight communards to attack the Vice-President with pudding, yoghurt, and flour. Because of this bad publicity, Uwe Johnson hastily asked his friend and neighbor Günter Grass to evict the students from his apartment. The next day, the communards were released and gave their first press conference – they had become celebrities, while the press and police officials had lost face in the public eye. The publisher Axel Springer henceforth called the members of Kommune 1 "communards of horror".
    (edit: axel springer and the "bild" (picture)-newspaper is the german equivalent to the brits murdoch/sun)

    right, thats why Vassil does the cookies...

    but they throw you in jail for lots of things: "illegal" protests, "resistance", political writing, farting in the public, fare dodging, hang out in the park or at the tube station (big problem right now), disrespecting cops... the list is endless and becomes even longer if you look like you are - a punk. pieing is just one more reason...

    burning his car would make the car owners feeling bad fearing for their own cars - but seeing his image mask covered with pie is different: he looks like the fool he is. remember helmut kohls freakout after some unemployed punk let him have an egg or tomato some years ago - this monster in a buisness suit started brawling like a juggernaut - what a fine display of whats really behind his mask of seriousness and competence - just another human with bad habits...

    pieing is a bit like "terrorism" - it's aimed more at the public than the actual target.
    terrorism spreads anxiety/angst and achieves nothing - pieing spreads an image everybody can think about without bad feelings.

    Pieing is fine so long as the pie is vegan or dumpstered (and maybe slightly rotten) and of course full of hot peppers, however it really doesn't do a whole lot unless their is a message behind it. Really you are better off getting your message out through different means. Find something to do that can be sustained if need be or if not then find something you can be stealthy with. A pieing is very public and unless you are a master of disguise you are likely to be found and arrested or attacked.

    Home demos work wonders and it really effects these people a lot. It scares them when you are just simply loud outside their houses. You don't have to do much else then just have signs and banners and be really loud and persistent. You come back at all times in the morning for a long time likely the persyn on the receiving end is going to do something possibly favorable to you or in some cases against free speech but something that shows you are being effective. It also helps inform the neighbors and sometimes get them on your side. People in high positions expect to leave their jobs and go home and they are just regular ass peoples but very much like Lt. Aldo Raine I cannot abide by that. They will go home take off their uniform and nobody will know that they are scum so you need to do something to let everyone know they are scum and since carving a dollar sign into a politician or corporate scums head isn't practical or likely possible and also highly illegal, a home demo is the next best thing.

    Another plus is when you have been there a few times and these people know why you are there and what they need to do too stop protests (but haven't done so) you can ride your bike too their house late a night do a quick 30 second in and out demo and then escape into the night and keep doing it at random times and it will make them lose sleep and their minds.
