Pie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree
“Jenkins, let me ask you a question. This is your first time in the executive lunchroom, is it not?”
“Yes, sir, it is. The pork shoulder was just heavenly.”
“Splendid, splendid. Glad you liked it. Well, it seems the third quarter of the meal is coming up, what do our projections say about dessert?”
“Well, sir, it seems that the boys downstairs are telling us that cherry is trending low, still above lime, but no where near as high as sweet potato.”
“Sweet potato, eh?”
“Yes, sir. Forecasts are that in the fourth quarter of the meal, sweet potato will be seeing a drastic jump. We’re still anticipating the traditional rise in coffee, just as always, but we think that as far as desert goes, sweet potato will be the position to be in, and as soon as possible.”
Waiter, can I get a slice of sweet potato, please?
“Blast! Well, you did try to warn me, Jenkins. No one to blame but myself, eh? Still, this is a good place to be. Let’s you and I go fifty-fifty on sweet potato and then plan to move to scrambled eggs just before the close. That will leave us in a good long-term position for morning and should keep steady until lunch. Excellent work, Jenkins, m’boy. We’re expecting good things from you. See you at breakfast!”
“Yes, sir! Thank you, sir!”

Wear this shirt: if you’re a piper. Just kick it around a little, you’ll figure it out.
Don’t wear this shirt: if you have the kind of friends who will say “Hey, you got a little pie right there” and then do that thing where they hit your nose when you look. Stupid jerkface friends. No wonder Kafka lived alone.
This shirt tells the world: “Caution, Filling Will Be Hot!”
We call this color: Remove When Brown, Allow To Cool Before Eating
