2. My wife is making chocolate. She said she didn't have enough pecans for a pie.

I told her pecans arenít the point of pecan pie.

Iím still getting chocolate. Iím good with that.

3. Unless I'm mistaken

a pecan pie without pecans is called chess pie.

4. I think it kind of depends on who you listen to. Some say a chess pie

is a form of custard pie with a crunchy top. Others say any nut pie is a chess pie. I donít care. Iím like Obama. Bring on the pie.

5. Yeah, I'm not particular when it comes to pie or the terminology used to describe it

Now I'm thinking about another variation of pecan pie: Derby pie, named for the Kentucky Derby. It's basically pecan pie with chocolate chips added.

13. Bear in mind that any pie near me is instantly in the past tense.

So they probably were round shortly before.

10. Furthermore...

How 'bout a Shepard's Pie? Or Mincemeat?

...never seen a square pie, so I'm with you on that account.

I asked mom about coconut creme, but we were both agreed on no more banana bread!
