If someone hands you a rock as a gift you'd probably ask if they've kept the receipt, but if you knew that they had spent several years rubbing it and thinking about your happiness as they did it you'd be more inclined to afford it some value. Likewise, the long pie is an empty plate filled with the time sacrificed by the chef on your behalf.

Long pie.
