Or else you may get some custard in it. Unless of course you are from England, whose team was just crowned World Custard Pie Throwing Champions. Seriously.
An English team triumphed beating competitors from as far afield as Germany and South Africa in the contest in Maidstone, Kent.
Despite usually being associated with comedy characters such as Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy, the competition, which involved 12 teams, has a strict set of rules which entrants must adhere to.
Competitors working in teams of four are awarded points for the parts of their rivals bodies’ they manage to hit, with the maximum of six points being given for getting them squarely in the face.
Personally, I would have expected a pie to the groin to be worth more than a facial. But that’s just me.
