shotgunAtlanta Constitution, November 27, 1929. It had to be mince pie, it could only have been mince pie. Had she been making pumpkin, banana cream or shoofly pie, she would have lived to watch Murder, She Wrote.


  1. Hmm…. perhaps this is the event that lead to the national ban on hot mince pie. It’s obviously dangerous stuff.

    Also, rule #1 and 2 of gun safety fail! (Don’t point the gun at anything you don’t want to shoot. Always assume the gun is loaded.)

  2. Suppose that there was some sort of generalized mince pie curse at work. Over the long term, people who liked it would have been selected against. Over the course of the two World Wars, a disproportionate number of mince pie eaters may have been killed. By 1945, the mince pie meme would have been more or less extirpated by concentrated bad luck. I’m just spitballin’ here.

    >Also, rule #1 and 2 of gun safety fail!

    Sound rules, but tough to put across to a 4-year-old.
