The cake is a lie. You can trust the pie.

Cheesecake is totally a kind of pie. Just like a jackrabbit is a kind of hare.

It's a lemon pie!

This is why we don't use pies for science.

To be fair, the legend/labels are leading and left unexamined - are we to take it entirely on faith that the smaller portion was eaten by the author alone? 'Not yet' implies that they will eat the rest - are we to trust predictions of the future from the author entirely uncritically? No, it's trying to sell us a larger fabricated story with but a kernel of truth. 'Existing pie' and 'no-longer-existing pie' are more strictly true, and don't constructive a questionable narrative about the events leading up to and following the taking of the photo in the same way. Make your own mind up!

I'm pretty sure that is a key lime pie sans green dye. I know this because it is my state pie. And because I am a fatty and make at least a couple of key lime pies a year. :)
