Forget the Tiger mother, (though do check out that poor Tiger Son, Lionel), today’s hot trend in “Tiger people” is Rupert Murdoch’s wife.
Yesterday the gabillionaire media old guy had to testify before MPs in London about the phone hacking scandal. I’m sure you know what happened. An angry and forthcoming fellow in the gallery tried to hurl a plate of foam (aka “pie”) at the alien looking old geezer when his wife sprung from her seat and took him down. Her reported history as a volleyball champion was supported here as she appeared to spike the fellow into submission.
And this has helped to deflect all the negative press on Mr. Murdoch’s company’s enormous and illegal gaffes! Well done Rupert’s wife!! (I’m sure she has a name, but she will be forever known mostly as “Rupert’s wife”). Protect your man and turn attention away from his nefarious ways! Makes me wonder if this was a set up. Either way, I’ll bet there’s a diamond bauble of size in there for her today. Or a cub of an endangered species.
Mr. Murdoch said he was sorry for all the trouble, but gosh darn it, none of it was his fault, so please leave an old man alone with his smokin’ Chinese wife. And if you don’t, he’ll sic her on ya!!
