10 Thanksgiving Pie Disasters

Ah, pie. One of the great joys of Thanksgiving…that can so easily turn to abject terror if done wrong. From burnt crusts, to terrible fillings, pie is either really good, or really, really bad. Here's ten of the worst Thanksgiving pies we've ever seen.

We're torn about what makes this pie so awful. It could be the burnt crust, or it could be the fact that the baker felt it was necessary to tell us that the literally hot mess we see before us is a “PIE.” No, it's probably the man about to shoot a deer in the head with his gun that makes the whole thing a little unappetizing.

The Pie of Lost Souls


Mmm… Ghost Pie. Just like Grandma used to make. Ghost Grandma, that is!

'Contra' Pie


This pie — and we're not joking here — is a tribute to the old Nintendo game 'Contra.' You can tell because it has the distinctive 'Contra' “C” on it, and if you enter a code into the pie, you get 99 lives.

Peace of Pie


Get it??? PEACE of pie! Occu-pie Wall Street! Lucy in the Pie With Pie-monds! And other pie-related puns! While the baker gave peace a chance, they forgot to give this pie a proper cooking time. It looks a little unfinished, much like the struggle for world peace. In that case, maybe this pie does work as a political statement. Just not as a pie.

Dad Pie


Okay, we get that a child clearly made the letters on top of this pie. That doesn't mean we have to eat it. “Dad” (or is that Lad? Jad?) is totally on his own with this one.

Burn Notice


You wouldn't think it, but people are very reticent to put pictures of their horrifically burned pies online. Thanks to the crack team behind this one, who apparently decided to broil their pie for a few minutes. Yipes.

OMG! Pie!


We're just going out on a limb here, but maybe the person who made this meant to write, “Pi! LOL!” rather than what they did, which has no jokes about Pie whatsoever? We love a good math joke delivered via pastry. We're totally ROTFE (Rolling On The Floor Eating) right now just thinking about a “Pi Pie.”

That's No Mold


There's something about this raw coconut pie that just looks horribly wrong and unappetizing. Oh yeah, it looks like a glop of sewage covered in mold. That must be it.

Bad Pie


Just an epic failure of pie-making on nearly every level.

Sunken Treasure?


Ah, there's the crust that makes mouths water: underdone in some areas, overdone in others and leaking fluids from small holes. Who's got a fork?
