I guess at least she can throw the pie in the face of the other whiny woman…

    Well, it said “pie buyer’s remorse” so I’m presuming that whatever kind of pie she got, she would wish she had gotten a different one.

    So with pie one doesn’t regret making the purchase at all, just their choice of pies?

    Just brainstorming here:

    Is it because “buyer’s remorse” is typically associated with large purchases like homes and automobiles and the woman’s “pie buyer’s remorse” is causing seemly disproportional angst for her?

    Maybe no matter which pie you buy, you’ll always find yourself hungry for the one you didn’t buy? I do not have this problem.

    My previous comment was supposed to say “seemingly”, not “seemly”, though that *is* one attractive pie (never mind, I am just making worse).

    This is awful. IT’S BUYER’S REMORSE… BUT WITH PIES! Never mind that buyer’s remorse already applies to pies. This is less a joke than a poorly drawn illustration of the dictionary meaning of “buyer’s remorse”.

    As I said on the other Six Chix comic today - “Six Chix is, more often than not, just a slice of life - not usually funny as much as an I’ve been there moment.” Except that this is really not funny and I would never have been there - if you change your mind in the bakery, there’s a quick solution.

    Pie-ers Remorse would’ve been funnier.

    It says «’buyer’s» - obviously she stole the pie, and now she’s regretting entering a life of crime for less than a banana pie.

    @Elyrest, since baked goods such as pies can’t actually be returned, you’d have to have enough money for the second pie if you had pie buyer’s remorse.

    Charlene - If I’m standing at the counter and they’ve just boxed it up, which it’s hard to tell if she is or has just left, most places would take it back.

    Is that the prop-comic guy . . Carrot Top? I’ve never seen his act . . . does he do something with cream pies . . .?

    Does anyone actually like banana cream pie? Blech.

    I sent this in. Not surprised nobody else has a clue. Also asked for an explanation on the DailyInk board; no replies there either. I think it’s pretty clear this is a misfire. It’s not funny, and not an interesting slice of life, either.

    MollyJ - I love banana cream pie. I can’t understand how anyone can eat lemon meringue pie - that’s a blech for me.

    zbicyclist - Not all slices of life are interesting, but you’re right - this comic is a misfire.

    Okay, a little late, but here goes.

    This one amuses me, because I’m a sugar addict (reformed). When I used to buy pies, just being in the store was a mild form of torture - I wanted one of every single pie. So I’d finally settle on one, but it was hard.

    The thing that this strip gets wrong is that once you’ve made a choice, you’re unlikely to change if given the opportunity. I may regret not getting a different pie, but if offered the choice to go through the whole thing again and make the decision all over again, I wouldn’t.

    Maybe she really meant to write “Pie-ers Remorse” as Elyrest suggested and didn’t realize her mistake until she had already inked it?

  16. Laura Jan 28th 2013 at 06:43 pm 16

    Maybe she has buyer’s remorse because she got a lemon (meringue pie).
