I held a pie election on Sunday. It was election week, it’s Thanksgiving season, it seemed like a good fit. I was in charge of FHE for the next day so wanted to give the people what they wanted.
Naturally, I used pie charts to record people’s votes. I always think that my handouts are perfectly clear, but invariably they confuse people. So there’s most likely some user error, or creator error I guess. But the results were interesting.
Banana Cream - 9 votes
Key Lime - 8 votes
Pecan - 8 votes
Chocolate Silk - 8 votes (minus 1 for suspected tampering)
Pumpkin - 8 votes (minus 2 for witnessed tampering)
Apple - 7 votes
Lemon Meringue - 5 votes
Cherry - 3 votes
Shepard’s - 1 vote
Write in for Peach and Custard
Obviously, it wasn’t a landslide, but Banana did win by a vote. Who knew? I was also surprised that Key Lime and Pecan were in the top running, as I’d considered them specialty pies. Maybe we have more southerners in the ward than I thought.
I thought Pumpkin would use it’s November-charm to win, but I guess people figure they can get enough of it in the coming weeks. Cherry’s failure surprised me, as it seems like such a pie staple. I guess the people have spoken.
