(Some Guy)   High school students bake 468-pound pumpkin pie in attempt to get into Guinness book, owned by town that already baked a 1,500-pound pie. They don't even get a set of bar towels   ( divider line

Give me a few weeks and I'd eat the whole damn thing.

"The students of Windsor High School baked hard and baked long..."

Dear Penthouse,

I was gonna send this to High Times, but I never thought they'd believe this. I can't hardly believe it myself.

I missed out on the whole bar towel thingie. Feh.

"'I wouldn't use condensed milk if I was camping!' Ganister said."

On first read, I thought this was a statement that even if they were to bake a pumpkin pie while camping, they wouldn't use condensed milk for it (preserving taste while having to lug the milk wherever they were going). Then I got confused because I was wondering why anyone would bake a pumpkin pie on a camping trip.

Then I went back and noticed that it was a comment on the culinary purity of the students, not a statement about baking pumpkin pies while camping. Silly me.

I didn't really have a point other than that it's really late and I'm tired. Bah, I'm not even drunk or anything. Nothing to see here, move along.

"I wouldn't use condensed milk if I was camping!" Ganister said.

I don't know why, but for some reason that made me laugh. I guess cleaning until 2 in the morning does things to a person's mind.

I grew up close to Windsor, CA, and this sounds about right. They try still hard, and yet, somehow, they still suck.

I was mocking? Like when they make a statement with rising inflection? Even though it's not a question? And they use 'you' when they mean, like, 'me'? And why do they wear their hats, like, backwards?
2005-10-18 03:13:32 AM  
Totalsecurity: Fair enough, I'll let ya go on that one. Seeing "can't hardly" just bugs the bejesus out of me.

He really should have made it a sour cream pumpkin pie.

I'm glad I'm not the only one irritated by that.

Or, "I knowed I can't hardly not be and suchlike..."

The roflcopters are cirling.

I only like pumpkin pie for the first 4 or 5 slices of the year. 468 pounds would make me cry.
2005-10-18 04:57:22 AM  
I can eat pumpkin pie (good stuff, preferably made by me) every month of the year.....

I LVOE the pumpkin pie.
2005-10-18 04:58:06 AM more for me.

/was borderline drunk
//drunk for sure
2005-10-18 06:40:22 AM  
It's fun to wake up bright and early and wake up my roommates, laughing out loud at the fresh crop of drunk posts.

Rock On.

"I wouldn't use condensed milk if I was camping!" I also do not partake of the partially distilled bovine lactic juices whilest awaiting the emergence of the pies from the oven. How many XPs are those pies worth, anyways?? Best to engage them w/sharp, melee weapons rather than blunt or ranged weapons. How long until those pies spawn agan, anyhow??
2005-10-18 08:53:13 AM  
they sent me four boxes of bar towels by accident.

how the hell do you bake a pie that big anyways?
2005-10-18 10:38:03 AM  
what i wouldnt give for a 1500 lb pie, or a bar towel...
2005-10-18 10:55:45 AM  
Did any of them think to CHECK WITH THE GUINNESS PEOPLE to see where the record stood before trying it?
2005-10-18 10:57:17 AM  
'But... but... but we used farm frash milk!'

Excuses. You lose.
2005-10-18 11:04:45 AM  
Did anyone ever get their Glenlivet coasters? I didn't.
2005-10-18 11:25:40 AM  
Why did anyone want a bar-towel anyway (honest question).
Was it made of solid gold or something?You can get them free from bars, or just fill the bar-towel shaped void in your life an extra large flannel. Or pornography.
2005-10-18 11:27:53 AM  
I got a bar towel, took a long ass time. I pray to it every night as my god of free stuff that I was lucky to get.

Pumpkin pie rocks

"I wouldn't use condensed milk if I was camping!" Ganister said.

Umm correct me if I'm wrong but don't you use condensed/evaporated milk because of the fat content and consistency. regular milk would have too much water and it is a frickin custard pie so it wouldn't set. Unless they used whole cream or something. Would be one fatty pie.

WTF do I know I only make one or two pumpkin pies a year.
2005-10-18 02:07:44 PM  
Thanks cHico11!
2005-10-18 10:20:42 PM  
Never got my goddamn towel. Thanks for reminding me.
2005-10-18 11:02:00 PM  
LiberalZombie is right. The least they could do is check if somebody was trying to bake a bigger pie. Is not like it would not be in the news or something.
