Thanksgiving Disturbia from Martha Stewart

A modest proposal anyone?

Martha Stewart: Well, doesn't this look like a beautiful Thanksgiving table? This is all kinds of delicious food. Well, if you look closely you'll see that this isn't a turky at all... and this is not really a lobster ... and this? This cute little lemon meringue pie is actually Hudson King ... (coos at baby stuffed in faux-pie) yes! And he's smiling! And look at this -- Cannon Thomas is fast asleep under her apple pie! She just loves this costume. She has a little knife to cut the pie ... and a little pie server ... Sonia's having a little hard time being a Caesar salad. She wanted to be a pie.

Happy Thanksgiving -- A pie gift for you!

The Wide Window, by Lemony Snicket

There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational - or, in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don't. For instance, the Baudelaire orphans have a fear of Count Olaf, which makes perfect sense, because he is an evil man who wants to destroy them. But if they were afraid of lemon meringue pie, this would be an irrational fear, because lemon meringue pie is delicious and would never hurt a soul.

"Obama and Sweet Potato Pie", by Mark Danner, in The New York Times:

When Obama launched into his story with "Because I love pie," a woman out in that sea of cheering, laughing people shouted back, "I'll make you pie, baby!" and to the general hooting laughter the candidate returned, "Oh yeah, you gonna make me pie?" Then, after a beat, amid even more raucous laughter, and several other female voices shouting out invitations, "You gonna make me sweet potato pie? " More shouts and laughter. "All you gonna make me pie?"

When Harry Met Sally

Waitress: What can I get you?

Harry: I'll have the Number Three.

Sally: I'd like the chef salad, please, with the oil and vinegar on the side. And the apple pie a la mode....But I'd like the pie heated, and I don't want the ice cream on top. I want it on the side. And I'd like strawberry instead of vanilla if you have it. If not, then no ice cream, just whipped cream, but only if it's real. If it's out of a can, then nothing.

Waitress: Not even the pie?

Sally: No, just the pie. But then not heated.

Waitress: Uh-huh.
