Knowing how my husband loves molasses I decided to make him a shoofly pie. I followed the recipe meticulously (or so I thought) and set it on the counter to cool. Later my husband and son both got a piece. A little while later I went downstairs and noticed someone (presumably my husband) had placed a homemade cutout of a skull and crossbones on the pie. I was told that the pie was horrible - I had forgotten the sugar. My husbands first response was to put the slice outside for the dog but the dog refused to eat it. My son managed to swallow the pie because he didn't want to hurt my feelings. And needless to say it wasn't necessary to "shoo any flies" as they didn't want it anyway. I tried to be offended by the skull and crossbones but it was just too funny. We reminisce about that pie and laugh even today 20 years later. PS I know shoofly pie is really good (if you follow the recipe properly!)
