Late last night Mennonite man, Samuel Fehr, 35, was spotted at a Rosetown picnic shelter working his way through a piece of Oma’s chokecherry pie. Authorities intevened when Fehr was still there after 1 AM.
“But I’m not finished my pie,” complained Fehr as he was scooted away by local police. “It’s not my fault I have to pick out all the pits.”
Fehr was excited when he saw Grandma had made a pie, but was crestfallen when he heard it was chokecherry.
“I knew it was going to be a long night,” explained Fehr. “The last time I had chokecherry pie it look more than two full days to finish.”
Fehr claims chokecherry pie is “absolutely delicious, but a real pain in the ass,” and likens it to the process of picking bones from Grandpa’s Fehr’s freshly-caught pickerel.
“There’s just no way around it,” says Fehr. “Once you start on a chokecherry pie, you’re in for the long haul.”
The current record holder is Peter Wiebe of Altona who finished a standard piece of chokecherry pie is five hours and twenty-one minutes, a record that has stood since 1981.
