It originated in the singlespeed/fixie forum and somehow leaked out.

Go ask in there, but prepared for a high level or weirdness. Them fixie riders are strange ones!

The "Pies" are an Australian football team. Sometimes referred to as magpies, also referred to as meatpies. I believe it may be some kind of homophobic challenge.

I don't think anyone actually knows what the hell it's all about. That's what makes it so damn funny. I seem to recall it originating from a comment made by 165 in reference to Schiek and stagnant seawater. My memory has been known short-out from time to time though.

If you think about it too much, you will never understand. It's a paradox, that way.

Down here in the sweet, sunny south an RC Cola and a Moon Pie are considered fine cuisine. (That's why I can't wait to go to Italy in a couple of weeks.)

Do they sell moonpies and R.C cola in Italy too? That must be a fine place to visit.

Maybe on this board, but the real deal's been around for millenia. Shoot, I liked pie long before the internet even existed-maybe even before I existed. Oooooooo, spooky.

Damn, I don't think I've got any pie. Might have to settle for ice cream....

I always thought pie had something to do with sniffing bike seats.

Not sure why, but that ^ scares me.

My sig comes from my best friend who once told me, "If you're in a conversation and there's an uncomfortable silence, say something weird like, 'I like pie!'." I do like pie, tho, of all kinds-so I'm not lying when I say it.

Even US presidents are partial to pie.


This following poem is composed entirely of actual quotes from George W. Bush.

Make the Pie Higher

I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It's a world of madmen
And uncertainty
And potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked
Is our children learning?
Will the highways of the internet
Become more few?
How many hands have I shaked?

They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.
I know that the human being and the fish
Can coexist.

Families is where our nation finds hope
Where our wings take dream.
Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Vulcanize society!
Make the pie higher!
Make the pie higher!

All of you are wrong about the origin of this statement of synergy.

Tammy Kukenbecker the USB president first used it in homeroom just as the discussion was moving from what deserts to provide to whether girls would be allowed to escort other girls to the senior prom.
