Peter Percival Patterson had a pet pig named Porky
This pet pig named Porky loved pie
He loved pizza pie, pumpkin pie, pineapple pie, pizza pie
Mince tarts
And Peter Percival Patterson's pet pig named Porky loved
Pie for breakfast, pie for lunch, pie in the afternoon
And pie before he went to bbbbed
Peter Percival Patterson's pet pig named Porky ate so much pie
That do you know what he did?
He popped.

Red rasberry pie is my favorite.

I haven't had one since my mom died 20 years ago.

I never see them at a good pie shop or at a restaurant.

Don't miss this opportunity, Ann.

Pie man creeps me out.

Internet Ronin said...

Which one did you buy and was it good, or was he a fraud and the pies commercial?

Maxine Weiss said...

Hash brownies.

Trooper York said...

Now I know what Joe Lieberman does with his weekends

Internet Ronin said...

Those are only available under the table, Maxine!

Did you ask him if he was fond of Justice Scalia?

Steve said...

Why was Chuck Mangione selling pies?

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Peter Hoh: Simple Simon met a pieman, going to the fair...

not Simon was a pieman.

In fact, if you ask him, he might just say he's a thigh man.

peter hoh said...

Ruth Anne, I think he's just after a piece.

Maxine Weiss said...

Where's Loretta, today?

Ann Althouse said...

I didn't buy a pie. Just took pictures. But vnjagvet makes me wish I'd bought a red raspberry pie. Maybe next year.

Peter Hoh, LOL.

Peter: Yes, my first thought was "He wants to sell Ann a pie...and then help her eat it."

Can't say as I blame him.

Believe it or not, Sara Lee makes an excellent red raspberry pie. Frozen of course, so probably not up to the standards of the foodies who infest this site, but good enough for me.

Among twenty snowy mountains
the only moving thing
was the pieman coming.

I was of three minds,
like Simple Simon
looking at three pies.

I can't even see the pies - and I'm drooling. Red Raspberry pie! Are you serious? that sounds yummmm.

Given that this is the "Pilgrim's Pantry," the gentleman's appearance, and the fact that he allowed his picture to be taken, I'm guessing that he is a Mennonite, which is to say, a member of the other major Anabaptist denomination (than the Amish) in America. Like all Anabaptists in America (as far as I know), they're of German descent. If there's one thing we folks of German descent know how to do, it's bake.

Never would I walk away from a Mennonite selling pies pieless!

Galvanized said...

His expression is weary and pleasant, like he just baked all of those last night and sampled each one.

A Texan will choose the pecan (pronounced "pee-con'") pie every time, warm it and top it with Blue Bell Natural Vanilla Bean. I guess the Midwesterners more have a thing for the raspberry.
