You call THIS a pie?
Today we have photos from the World Pie Championship. But these are called “Scotch pies,” even though there is no Scotch in them, nor is there any pie, for that matter. A pie is a specific kind of dessert, with a filling you can describe in exactly two words, like key lime or mom’s apple or warm cherry.
By contrast, these things in the photos have meat in them, or maybe worse. Wikipedia says “Scotch pies” have a top crust that is lower than the rim, to make room for stuff like baked beans or gravy. I am not making this up, and I can only hope vandals got in and messed with the real Wikipedia entry.
By now you’re saying, “But Bob, if those folks eat pies for their meal, what the heck do they serve for dessert?” I will tell you, because I have eaten in the homes of people over there. They serve fruit. Or maybe worse. Here is the slideshow.
