Not my story, but worth sharing:
I was subbing in a math class on March 12, the day before Pi Day (observed), and the teacher was giving extra credit for any students who brought in pie (more points for homemade). A couple of students, despite never having made a pie before, were bound and determined that they were going to make lemon meringue. I tried to warn them that meringue is extremely touchy, and that lemon meringue was therefore about the hardest possible pie they could start with, but in the end, I just decided that, one way or another, they were going to get a learning experience out of it.

I'm still not sure how it turned out.
