Not THIS custard pie madness, obv. Seeing Jeremy Clarkson getting humiliated in public is clearly on of the finer things in life. Nevertheless the sad thing is that custard pies are not what they were. In as much as once upon a time they were more than just whipped fake cream on a paper plate.

I remember the custard pies of Tiswas, whilst being sans pastry (as we know not a pre-requisite for pie) being more robust than the nonsense we get these days. Now I am not advocating using a proper, tasty, egg custard pie for flan flinging, it would be a waste on someone like Clarkson. But could we perhaps move away from calling a paper plate of whipped cream a custard pie? They are aerodynamically rubbish as well.
