Did you know that the Ancient Egyptians and the Romans invented pie? The tough pie crust worked like an ancient lunchbox, keeping people's food fresh.
Pie became so important in the UK that seventeenth century revolutionary Oliver Cromwell even banned mince pies at Christmas for being too luxurious. What a killjoy!
Luckily, these days we get tasty edible pie crusts and proper containers for our lunches and mince pies are legal again. People everywhere still like a good pie, and we've collected 30 of the best pie puns you'll love.
