Ceci n'est pas une pieLook out! Do not eat this pie. Oh, it may look delicious with its red, sugary goo and its crisp crusty crown. It may entice you with its fresh-baked smell. It may impress you with its dedication to community service, its successful private practice and its knowledge of foreign lands. But it is nothing more than lies, all lies! This is not your beautiful pie. This is not a pie at all! This is a false pie, an impostor pie. This is deception pie.

"Oh but Fafnir it looks so sweet and tasty" says you well that is what it wants you to think! It is all part of its skillful an deadly camoflage, blendin in with its natural pastry surroundings. In the wild it approaches and devours the unwary pies who do not learn to pick out its waxy scent; in the kitchen it lies in wait for bigger prey, waitin to spring its trap. Stay away from this pie!

A more responsible society would mark our counterfeit pies with prominent signs like "Watch out - fake pie!" or "Ceci n'est pas une pie" or "My name is George Bush and I approve this pie." But instead you find the false pie like an oasis of pie in a pieless desert, and starved for crisp, rich deliciousness you slice off a piece and bite in, only to find the shock of recognition: This isn't a pie! This is some crap fake pie! The tears of a thousand unavenged children fall from your eyes as false pie laughter fills the air.
