On second thought, let's not go to the Olympics. 'Tis a silly place.

A petition for pie-throwing at the Olympics. Sure, why not? I'm not sure how it would work, though. Would there be a scoring system? "Oooooh, a half-point deduction because that last hit left too much of the right cheek clean." Would there be an official Olympic recipe for the edible missile? (Heck, would the missile even be edible? Shaving cream, ewwwww.)

Anyway, I'm totally on board! I also think the London Olympics should include competitive haggis eating, warm-beer drinking, and...hey, wait a minute. We're the ones who invented pie throwing in the first place! Why do the Brits get to claim it as an important cultural thing? It's like how the tomato is seen as a classic Italian vegetable, and yet, not one person on the Italian peninsula ever saw a tomato until they were brought back to Europe from over here!
