Wikipedia claims that "Australians consume an average of 12 meat pies each per year".

Just as a rough estimate -

There are five people in my family. Only three are home for dinner with any kind of certainty; however there is usually one of the others home at least half the time. So we'll approximate 3.5 people at home.

We have "freezer food" nights on Saturdays. Whatever is in the fridge or freezer is fair game; my mum doesn't want to cook Saturdays. 45 out of 52 times there'll be pies for dinner (approximately 5 would be sandwiches/nuggets/chips etc, the other two would be times we actually go out).

Each person eats two pies.

So 3.5x45x2=315.

EACH OF US EATS 90 MEAT PIES A YEAR.

Say a 4-pack of Sargeant's meat pies costs $4.49 (I really have no idea how much they really do cost, but it seems like a decent price). That means that (90/4x4.49=101.025) we spend over a hundred dollars a year on meat pies alone. Compared to the 'average' Australian who spends (12/4x4.49=13.47) thirteen measly bucks on our national food.

HOLY JESUS CHRIST SON OF MARY AND JOSEPH AND SUPPOSEDLY GOD.

There must be bucketloads of Australians who don't touch meat pies with a twenty foot pole for 365 days a year.

I used to eat meat pies until one day I bit into one and found a HUGE GIGANTIC CHUNK OF COW VEIN in it. Haven't eaten one since.

Well I just assumed that all the gristle meat in it was beef. The notion that it could have been anything else makes it worse.

It could have been lamb. Or pork, maybe. Chicken. Goat. Alpaca. Camel. All the wonderful mammals generally used for food.

So it turns out my teachers were right, there is a practical use for maths after high school.

PIES. IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN'T DO (OTHER THAN TASTE GOOD)????

They can fly. And swim. They can't really walk, though. Unless they sprout little meaty legs and waddle down the street. But if they were running away from you then you could probably just follow the flakes of puff pastry.
