I'm working on some promotional material for our PIE program, but rather than use some lame stock photo of a piece of pie, I'd love to get a headshot of someone aggressively mowing down some poor, defenseless pie. Any takers?

My plan is to add a bit of funny text to the image, with a link to our PIE page, and blast it all over the place - social media namely. So you'd have to be cool with your face being on the internet

Anyway, any takers? Of course, it would be GREAT if we could talk Mr. Wheaton into doing this, since he's the face of Permies, but I'll take any takers! I would do it myself, but I'm not nearly as famous, and am sadly, lacking in pie making ingredients until next week.

Here are a bunch of old images with no known copyright:
Flickr Commons: search for "pie"

I could see something like this working:

It's not funny, but it IS Montana huckleberry pie.



This was probably at Ekstrom's Stage Station, Paul's favorite place for huckleberry pie.

Thanks Jocelyn! I actually came across those pictures before, but I was hoping for something a little more specific to the uses I'll be putting it to - in both size and style.

I've just got this idea in my head of some promotional material I'd like to run - it could be the product of loony late night brainstorming, but I think something like this could get some decent exposure with the right catchphrase to go with it!
 
I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
