PIE FIGHT! New York Yankees batter Johnny Damon reacts after being hit with a shaving cream 'pie' after hitting a solo walk-off home run to beat the Minnesota Twins in the 10th inning of their Major League Baseball game in May 2009. Pieing had its origins in slapstick comedy and in Laurel & Hardy's 'The Battle of the Century,' which allegedly required four thousand pies. Common at fairs or fundraisers, in addition to pie tosses, there are pie-eating contests and bake-offs if you prefer nonviolent pie fun.
