Quantas Airlines CEO Alan Joyce took things in stride Tuesday after he got a pie in the face as he addressed a crowd at a breakfast meeting in Sydney.

The BBC reported that Joyce had just been introduced when an unidentified man walked across the stage, pied Joyce and then walked off before being taken into custody by security personnel.

Joyce left the stage to get cleaned off and then returned.

"Now, if there are any more pies you can get it over with now," he said after getting back in front of the crowd of more than 500 people.

The incident remains under investigation.
