Return to "pie" page.

This could be reworked into our page.Polyglot 08:35 May 2, 2003 (UTC)

The french word la pie is not a woodpecker (please correct me if i am wrong). pie vert should be pic vert (le pic vert)

I have found Pie vert aux légumes searching with google but it is not a bird with vegetables

Sorry for having it wrong. I'm taking out the related word, as they are not related after all then.

Where is the verb "to pie" used? (i bum men) I've never heard it in Australia or on my travels so it must be regional and it would be cool to note just where. — Hippietrail 00:41, 20 May 2004 (UTC)

To pie someone is to hit them in the face with a pie (I'll add it). I haven't heard the other one but suspect it might be regional in England and possibly dated.
And my guess was totally wrong. Google for "pie a corner" turns up a few usages, all in a small-arms combat context. E.g. http://www.defense-training.com/quips/2001/NTI11,Harrisburg,PA,29May-2June01.html.

In pop culture, often jokingly referred to as the answer to everything, much like forty-two. Removed. See discussion October 2006 at WT:RFVA

VandalismEdit

This page has been target of vandalism many times ago. I'm pretty new to wiktionary, so i don't know how to revert the vandalism.

Reverting is easy: just look at the edit history, at any comparison page, there is a link ‘revert’ next to the user name on the comparison page. I do not think it is necessary to block this page. Maybe a semi-block could be considered. henne 17:44, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
