Your tax dollars at work.

(I checked out the website. I think they should have added a section about The Three Stooges).

You know it was our very own Paul Wheaton that went to congress and demanded that they create this day. He said that unless there was a National Pie Day, that he would not leave.

Paul is a mad man about pie, so never cross him by taking away his pie.

And if you believe me, I have some really nice stuff to sell you.

Do people actually eat custard pies? Be careful what you ask for.

I loves me a good* custard pie!

My favorite pie is actually a cake. It's also the best donut in the world found at Dunkin Donuts!

Does anyone know what it is?

You know you could watch that a million times over and you would still laugh. It was always amazing how great of pie throwers they were.

Hmmm... It looks this Boston Cream Pie Donut is even being served at a Dunkin' Donuts in Boston. (Note the Emerson College van in the background.)

How very appropriate!

It is, after all, the Official Massachusetts State Donut!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
