Do you know how much time Congress in DC spends on naming post office buildings?

The only reason you shouldn't like pecan pie is if you're deathly allergic to it. Not even mildly allergic, as the taste will overcome the itching/hives. It should only be the ones that actually prevent you from swallowing that delicious goodness because your throat swelled up.

/Damn now I'm hungry for pecan pie

And for the record, it's pronounced puh-CAWN pie, not PEE-can pie..

Oh, don't you all worry your pretty little heads. After this matter of extreme importance to the state is resolved, our beloved Texas legislature will resume turning the treasury over to Rick Perry's friends, legislating mandatory gun ownership, driving out the Mexicans, and erecting a 50-foot statue of Jesus on the capitol lawn with requirements that all Texans spend all day Sunday glorifying the official state lord and savior.

Any official pie other than apple pie is downright un-American. This is stealth secession.

Even with a Republican House?

But they read the Constitution at the beginning of each Congress!

I think you're mistaken - there's no way this still happens in the Boehner House. Impossible.

PEE-can is the way northerners pronounce it when they think they're doing a hilarious southern accent in a vaudeville sort of way.  Kind of like saying "Nuh Joisey" or "Cullifernya." But Kari syrup or molasses is really the basisof the bestest pie ever.  The pecans are just a finishing touch.

Pecan pie sucks. Congealed corn syrup. No, thanks, no amount of pecan yumminess will save that hideous mess.

(Though I have concocted a genuinely delicious pecan pie with maple syrup, brown sugar, a couple Tbsps of malt syrup, and toasted pecans. Fark that corn syrup shiat.)

I think your beef may be with corn syrup and not pecan pie. That's my guess.
