Thank You for Pie

There is just no substitute for pie. Without pie, we would be a very different culture.

Where would four and twenty blackbirds sing?

Where would little Jack Horner find a plum?

Who ever heard of Shepherd’s cake?

What would cows leave behind?

Would Marie Callender join the ranks of the unemployed at her delicate age?

Would children make mud burgers in the back yard?

Would we all be as American as apple strudel?

Chicken pot torte?

Minced meat muffin?

Lemon meringue fritter?

Banana cream scone?

A clown getting a soufflé in the face is not so funny

A quiche chart or graph?

Donut ala mode?

Who ever sat a pot roast on the window sill to cool?

An Eskimo pie would just be a plain ol’ ice cream sandwich

Would loved ones be called cutie roll?

New York could never get famous for Pizza cobbler

Easy as… (what?)

Don McLean’s American Coffee Cake?

  1. okay, i disagree.
    a clown getting a soufflé in the face is WAY funnier.

  2. What a darling post! Would there be a cake in the sky? 🙂

  3. DID YOU KNOW?: Pi, or π (pronounced the same as “pie”), is a mathematical constant that represents the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean geometry, which is the same as the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. Pi is one of the most important mathematical constants: many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering involve π

  4. You are talking to the right person. I always requested a Birthday Pie even as a child — so much better than cake.

  5. I’ve eaten way too many cookies in the last 24 hours. I’d sure love some pie!

    The imagery of pizza cobbler unnerves me, and yet, I find it hysterical!

  6. but what about Pi Pie?

  7. HA!!! You come up with so many varied clever things to be thankful for! What a treat! Almost as good as pie! 😉
