Have you ever been hit in the face with a pie?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (32692points) March 23rd, 2016

I have many times. Once in high school, I was dressed as the mascot of an opposing school for a skit in a pep rally. My school’s mascot hit me with a pie. The students loved it. In a production of The Taming of the Shrew set in 1953, I played Hortensio and got pied nightly for the run of the show.

Fun fact: use shaving cream. Real cream gets in clothes and stinks to high heaven very quickly.

Never. Are you offering?

Only once—on a very difficult math exam.

@marinelife There’s a pie fight in Meta. :)

@Pachy Did that exam cream you?

Nope not I. I’ve only ever seen it on TV.

It’s not as bad as it looks. That’s when you know it’s coming.

No. Had a cream-from-a-can battle with friends once, though. Does that count?

Sounds tasty!

It was mostly greasy.

The closest I got was when I was with my husband (then boyfriend) visiting his family in Mexico. They took me out for dinner for my birthday and the waiter came up behind me and with his hand surprised me by putting a huge handful of whipped cream on my face. I was really pissed! I immediately took my hand, wiped some off my face, and smacked some into my husband’s face. I thought he planned it. He hadn’t. The restaurant took it upon themselves to do it. I still find it not funny at all.

@JLeslie Actually, that doesn’t sound fun in the least.

Not hit in the face. But I did have my face smushed into a pie.

A record store where a friend worked had a pie eating contest set up. For the first six contestants, we got set up at a table, hands tied behind our back, bent over, ready to eat the pie without hands as soon as the starter said,“go”.

It was a trick. Just as we were ready to go, “assistants” pushed our faces down into the pies.

Very tricky. Was the pie any good?

@Hawaii_Jake Doesn’t shaving cream make your eyes sting?

I’m a huge, lifelong MLB fan. For quite a few years now, many of the winning team’s game stars (home team only) have been hit with a pie. It started with shaving cream, but many “victims” complained about sore eyes. Now, pie-face is done with real pies.

Haha, no, but I have always wanted to throw a pie in someones face and, slap someone with a glove, like in the old movies when one was challenged to a duel.” Take THAT you cad!”
Nope, no pie in my face but I had a Sea Gull shit on my head once. gah, it was like someone squirted mustard all over my head. lol

How many times have I had to bite my tongue around a condescending jerk (or, as an arrogant, white, male jerk is now called, a douchebag), really wishing I’d had a huge banana cream pie? :-)

@Coloma Larry, Curly, and Mo come to mind.

@Love_my_doggie I was told it could be irritating to the eyes, so I kept them shut and was able to wipe them well before opening. It didn’t cause any problems for me. I must explain that when I did it in Shakespeare in the Park, we were outdoors, and it rained. All I had to do was raise my face, and it was washed off. That was a very wet year.

@Hawaii_Jake It was a boysenberry pie, delicious, I ended up with flakes of crust in my eyebrows.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I love pies made from berries of all types! I think I’ll eat mine with a fork, though.

@Hawaii_Jake I make a fresh apple blackberry die to die for. Eat your heart out. aha
