11:12 : Is it pie?
In an effort to rid the world of heretical pies I finally bought isitpie.com the other day and put some content up.

I have further plans but for now I feel it gets my main point across.
hmm pie.

A good question. A pastie passes the encased in pastry test. So is more of a pie than some. I suppose the main difference is that pastie is should be formed from one continous bit of pastry where as pies are normally two.

Handhold-ability? Although then you have confusion between pork pies and pasties...

if i was being really militant i would discount pork pies because they use a hot water crust pastry instead of short crust pastry. which i feel all true pies should really have.

1. Vile
2. Doesn't even exist.
3. So far from a pie it might as well be cottage pie.

It fails the pie test on two counts.

1. Not surrounded by pastry

2. Doesn't contain meat.

Is the food in that icon a pie? Note the DOUBLE surrounding of the filling. AND IT IS BEING EATEN BY A HUMAN!

NB this ninja in a cupcake is a pie
