Happy Pi Day: The 10 Best Pie Moments In Pop Culture

Today’s March 14th. That’s 3/14… as in 3.1415926535897…..! Like math. So let’s talk about pie.

1. Warrant’s “Cherry Pie”

This song, which compares sex with cherry pie (why not?), is still a mega classic… for some weird reason. Hmmm. We still can’t figure it out. 

2. This Sexy Pie Fight

This deliciously sexual promo for the reality show The Real Gilligan’s Island is the only good thing to come out of The Real Gilligan’s Island. Enjoy!

3. Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet’s Sexy Labor Day Pie

When a scary, murdery guy wants you to take him into your home, what’s a lady to do? Make a sensual peach pie together, of course. Then, score a Golden Globe nom. 

4. The Infamous American Pie Pie-Screwing Scene

Apple pie was forever changed by this scene. Of course, we’re still a little miffed that Jason Biggs would deface a perfectly beautiful and delicious pie, but we hold the late ’90s very near and dear to our hearts. And nothing says 1999 better than this scene. 

5. Don McLean’s “American Pie”

So this long-ass song is really about a plane crash and not pie. It’s still fun to sing the chorus. 

6.Stand By Me Pie-Eating Contest Scene

Two American classics – Stand By Me and a pie-eating contest – come together to create one of the most nauseating, vile scenes in movie history. 

7. Eugene Hits Coach In the Face With Pie, Grease

In some ways, this scene makes us sad. What a waste of pie. In others, it makes us very happy (for about 1.87 seconds), because Eugene the nerd triumphs and might even be on the baseball team next year! And isn’t that what Grease is all about? Nerds changing themselves and becoming cooler? And isn’t that what Pi Day is all about? Math nerds becoming cooler and eating pie? Is your mind blown yet?

8. Andy Samberg Makes a Pumpkin Pie

What’s better than a Martha Stewart party? A Martha Stewart party with a dash of Samberg! Watch them crank out a Libby’s Pumpkin Pie. It’s a little awkward, but so what?

9. Dean Martin’s “That’s Amore”

Dean Martin, you charming devil, you. This song makes us so, so, so, so hungry. It’s also so easy to forget that pizza is a pie, so this song is a welcome reminder. 

10. Game of Thrones: Bye, Hot Pie

We were so glad to see this wuss get out of the way. You don’t deserve to be in the game if you just wanna bake bread. Truth.
