Terroir Pledges Allegiance to Chris Cannon


In the wake of the Chris Cannon/Michael White divorce, the merry pranksters at Terroir have made their allegiances very clear with a tribute to “our hero” Chris Cannon so hilariously unsparing it makes Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes commentary look like a Hallmark card.

Cannon’s years as a successful general manager and his “never say die attitude” are contrasted with White’s “CV,” which comprises “living on his parent’s couch in Beloit, Wisconsin, … before Chris brought him back to NYC.” Ouch. Also ouch: “[Altamarea CEO] Ahmass Fakahany’s CV: Overseeing risk management and the manufacturing and selling of mortgage-backed securities at Merrill Lynch during the 2000s, causing the firm to declare a loss of $2.3 billion in 2007.” To which one can only add: touché.
