How Pie-Throwing Became a Comedy Standard (Anne Ewbank, Atlas Obscura)
“One of the last places you might expect to find a commemorative plaque is on a concrete self-storage building in Los Angeles.

They used data from the U.S. Geological Survey…and calculated both the pancake’s and the state’s flatness from there.” (Kansas wins)

Robert Christgau: 'We Have to Deal With It': Punk England Report
