     VIDEO RELEASE OF "THE PIE'S THE LIMIT"

Whispered Media announces the release of their latest activist video
production, "The Pie's the Limit," chronicling the global pastry
uprising of the Biotic Baking Brigade (BBB).

This 28 minute video features a cornucopia of political pie-throwings
in San Francisco and beyond, including a brief history of consumable
comedy and behind the scenes interviews with *real* underground
pie tossers... Plus, corporate media analysis and in-your-face politics.

******************************************

Marvel at Milton Friedman's mushing!
Revel in Robert Shapiro's rousting!
Wonder at Willie Brown's whipped topping!
Cackle at Kenneth Derr's caking!
Behold Bill Gates' belittling!
Relish Renato Ruggiero's ruffling!

"THE PIE'S THE LIMIT"

Starring:

- San Francisco's corporate lackey, Mayor "Slick" Willie Brown...
- Robert Shapiro, the President and CEO of Monsanto Corporation,
the genetic engineering company that makes Agent Orange,
Round-Up, rBGH (a.k.a. BST), Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's),
NutraSweet and other lovely toxins...
- Nobel Laureate Economist Milton Friedman, architect of
Neoliberalism and Pinochet's fascist Chilean economic policies,
advisor to Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher...
- Kenneth "People Do Die" Derr, Chairman and CEO of Chevron
Corporation, complicit in the Nigerian military's recent slaughter
of indigenous people who were protesting the poverty and
degradation they suffer while Chevron profits from their oil...

Supporting Cast:

- Renato Ruggiero, Chief of the World Trade Organization
(WTO), the world's unelected, undemocratic, and completely
unaccountable corporate "government."
- Bill Gates. Everyone knows who Bill Gates is. See him pied.
Delicious...

Watch in delight as a half dozen demagogues are served up their
just deserts! "The Pie's the Limit" made its world premiere at
the San Francisco Anarchist Book Fair on March 27, 1999 to a
very warm reception.
