Goose Liver

While organizing a fundraising dinner for President Clinton, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, famed for their radical animal rights activism, were dismayed to learn that goose liver was among the items on the menu. Baldwin promptly called a senior Democrat to complain: "Can you imagine what it feels like," he asked, "to have a pipe shoved down your throat?"

Goose liver was not served at the dinner.

[During the attempted impeachment of President Clinton, Baldwin appeared on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien": "If we were in other countries," he declared, "we would all right now... all of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death. We would stone him to death. (Crowd cheers.) Wait. Shut up. Shut up. No, shut up. I'm not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we'd kill their wives, and their children. We would kill their families." (Baldwin later called the rant a pre-rehearsed "joke"; NBC vowed never again to air the episode.)]
