For no good reason we're doing a battle of the pies. We were inspired by recent online tournaments, the Winter Olympics, and the popularity of Kevin's dumb twitter polls in general. We were going to write a big introduction about why we are doing this, but it's all a front anyway. Really, it's a way for Kevin to procrastinate writing his book and a way for us to have some fun with our online pals.
If you want to participate, (It's not like we all have better things to do than fight on the internet about pies, right?) be on the lookout for polls on @knifenerd's Twitter feed. You can keep track of the winners here.
Well THAT was a horse race. All pies fought valiantly, but once again this round was not without its controversies. I think Coconut may have lost some votes by historically being the facilitator for many a pie-facing shenanigan. Also, when it was revealed that Boston Pie earned it's entry under false pretences, its support dropped off dramatically.
The people have spoken and Strawberry Rhubarb has come out on top. Truly the king of pies. Kevin will have to be happy with second best, as his pick has come up short. One thing is certain though, Saskatoon's second place showing vindicates its placement in the finals. Key Lime, while a delicious tropical treat, didn't have the graham crackers for the one-two punch of the proud prairie staples. Thank you for following along and voting. I think Kevin is done procrastinating now. At least we hope so, we need to get this GD book done.
Mason's job is to make Knifewear and Kent of Inglewood look cool. Which is an easier job than it looks (don't tell Kevin) since both are much cooler than Mason. He enjoys owning knives that make him feel like a much better cook than he actually is, and looking at razors that make him wish he shaved more than once every five years.
