(Poll) What is pie?

I've been kind of on the fringes of the latest fandom explosion. Seeing lots of long posts with hundreds of comments springing up in moments - like mushrooms - when I check the Internet right before going to bed, and by the time I go online again the next day the argument has moved on to yet deeper and stranger waters. Besides, I think most people reading this know my position on S8 already, even if I haven't been posting about it all that much recently.

There is, however, one thing that's been bothering me A WHOLE LOT about the discussion, and that's all this talk about pie. And I don't even like pie all that much... but I think there's a linguistic disconnect going on here that's blurring the issue.

So! A poll.

If someone offers you some pie... and I mean actual pie, not metaphorical pie - what do you expect to receive?

Pie # 1 - fruit!Pie # 2 - meat!
CCherry pie. It's more brightly coloured than apple pie, which is why I chose this pictureMeat pie. Actually a steak and kidney pie; I chose this picture because it has gravy as well as just pink meat like a pork pie.


Poll #1622681 The cake is a lie - but what about the pie?

Which of the above would you expect to be given if someone offered you pie?

Pie # 1
45(66.2%)
Pie # 2
12(17.6%)
Pie # 3.14159265
