|01:48 pm - this one's for you, xine, by way of archy|
|we may need to agree boss |
that this would have been much better
had it not included the s for plurality s sake
but then the supermarket may confuse longtime shoppers
who would be led to believe there was but one pie for sale
when in fact you can clearly see
this is not the case
...Is 'pies' not a word? o_O You can have 'lots of pie' as a quantity of the substance, or you can have 'lots of pies' as a number of filled pastry shells.
"Pies" is indeed a word, but "Pie!" on its own is much more jubilant.
"When come back, bring pie" would make for a dandy slogan, I admit.
They won't have to pay the talking eggs if their freezer case reads 'Pies! Pies! Pies!'
My mind is awhirl
on your koan
like the living leaf
swirls on the eddies
of the frigid brook.
at least they re consistent
keeping desserts and pies both plural
and noting the pure ecstasy of pie
why not enjoy two or more

If one had a spare "s" or three, or a little stealth-paintin'-fu, one could make all the good paranoid patrons of that establishment quite nervous by advertising Spies! Spies! Spies! Because you never know when Spies! might be watching to make sure you don't get more than your fair share of Pie!

That is indeed the case. The case full of pie.
