What Does A Frisbee Have to Do With Pie? 

Frisbees were invented by alumni from my small Vermont college. While there were famous alumni and authors from the school, the addition of frisbee to American culture was a certain point of pride for the school. There was even a statute of a giant Great Dane leaping with a frisbee in his mouth on campus (and, oddly, the artists decided to include giant genitellia for the very-male dog, and created a late-night tradition of rubbing the dog's balls for good luck.)

The story behind the frisbee is that some then-students were road tripping across the country one summer, and broke down in Montana. Stranded and waiting for help, the boys devoured a pie, which they had picked up at one of the nearby restaurants. The pie was from the Frisbee Pie Company, and as they tossed the tin around began shouting "frisbee, frisbee."

We just thought you should know.

Wednesday is deadline for our Pie-Off. Submit your favorite recipe to pie@bendsource.com. We will select the three favorite, and offer them to submit real-baked pies for review on Monday, November 11 at Broken Top Bottle Shop, 7 pm.
