I Am A Pumpkin Pie Addict

I have a semi-serious addiction going on. This addiction involves consuming large amounts of pumpkin pie in short periods of time.

Over the last three months, I have ingested at least 22 pounds of pumpkin pie. I've arrived at this figure by multiplying the minimum number of pies I've eaten (at least 8 1/2) by the weight of a Costco pumpkin pie (2.68 pounds). When you add how many buckets of whipped cream topped my pie, you've got yourself a gourd full of heavenly goodness.

Hearing this total may make someone question my honesty. Any of my in-laws or my wife will happily verify the truthfulness of my claims. My pumpkin pie consumption is greater than the weight of this big muther bunny:

Snopes.com confirms that this is an authentic, gargantuan rabbit weighing 17 pounds, which is still measly compared with my impressive 22 pounds. The average American consumes 6 pieces of pie a year. I've long since left the average American in the dust.

Six pieces? I eat six pieces of pie in my sleep! Just kidding, but I did eat over half of a chocolate cream pie in the last few days. It was divine and grumpiness inducing.
