(Newser) – Oh, the joy of being a female CEO, and in the tech industry, no less: At Yahoo's shareholder meeting today, Marissa Mayer got to hear this from a questioner, reports Sam Biddle at ValleyWag (which has the video):

  • "I have 2,000 shares of Yahoo, I'm Greek, and I'm a dirty old man, and you look attractive."
The shareholder then went on to carp about dividends, and Mayer "handled it very well," writes Jay Yarow at Business Insider. "She just ignored his scuzzball comment." And beyond that, the meeting was "largely an uneventful affair," adds John Paczkowski at AllThingsD. (Read more Marissa Mayer stories.)
