Safeway GC apologizes for offensive joke

Robert Gordon’s joke not only offended women, it wasn’t even funny

It’s hard to know who would be more offended: women or anyone with an ounce of a sense of humor. But regardless, Safeway’s GC Robert Gordon has apparently apologized for the certifiably terrible joke (and by terrible, I mean not funny … even if offensive jokes were your cup of tea) he told when he opened the company’s annual shareholders meeting on May 15.

Here’s the abridged version: President Obama was carrying two pigs under his arms, and a Secret Service agent complimented him on the pigs, to which Obama explained they were special pigs. He said he got one for Hillary Clinton and one for Nancy Pelosi, to which the agent responded, “Excellent trade, sir.”
