I really wish I understood the whole pie thing. I guess I'm just not that cool.

I'm thinking its the equivalent of a pacifier at a rave. Something meaningless and silly.

Its acutally cooler not to know what it is. Like until recently i had never seen StarWars, i kind of knew what the force was but not really. Now i know and so what! So does everyone else, in this case it was "cooler" not know.

Its kinda like that feeling when you turn on MTV by some odd chance and see bands winning awards that you have never heard of.

or if FG went mainstream!

I'm so cool I had chicken pot pie yesterday, and I didn't even know it was pie day. So cool I was eating the last piece when I saw this thread. Don't know if I can stand it.

Darned if I didn't eat Pie's messy cousin Cherry Cobbler yesterday, and I didn't even know about Pie Day! I should listen to the Black Helicopters more often....

Today is eskimo pie day!

On January 24, 1922, the United States granted patent number 1,404,539 for the Eskimo Pie. Nelson's patent applied to any type of frozen material covered with candy. Nelson also had the name "Eskimo Pie" trademarked. Initially, even the word "Pie" in a brand name frozen treat was covered by this trademark. The breadth of the patent was detrimental to Eskimo Pie because of growing legal costs associated with its defense.
