MEANWHILE IN MAINE, lawmakers are debating a bill to name whoopie pies the official state dessert. This is just absurd. Obviously blueberries should be the state dessert when you really look at it.
But blueberry growers are reluctant to oppose the whoopie pie bill, said David Bell, executive director of the Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine.
“We just don’t want to start a food fight,” he said. [Kennebec Journal]
We’ve made the argument before. The whoopie pie should instead be named state bird.
