A free pie?  That is so cool but it also sounds like folks shouldn't be in a rush to get there...

Free pie, maybe I will just SPEED right over?  On second thought, then it would no longer be free as the cops are just buzzing to sting you with a ticket.  

Ok, that's enough and I got them all out of my system...

Ok, maybe one more, dont drink and drive.
