John Oliver Calls Sepp Blatter The Pepe LePew Of Soccer
The best news so far in the FIFA corruption scandal is that Sepp Blatter is calling for an invetsigation of hos own investigation. Or, as John Oliver puts it on his HBO show, "It's like someone standing up at in the middle of an intervention and saying, "You know what? Fuck all of you, you've got a drinking problem! You've got a drinking problem! I'm fine! How do you like them apples!"
As you know, Blatter, FIFA's embattled president, was suspended for 90 days by FIFA's ethics committee, which is just a month short of when he is scheduled to step down anyway. FIFA will elect a new president in February. But the organization is having a difficult time finding someone to take over in the meantime, as just about every official under Blatter is also tainted by some sort of scandal.
All of which leads to some awesome analogies, among them the Warner Bros. cartoon character Pepe LePew, and Janet in accounting who will steal your yogurt from the break room and just not care.
