There are a few rules that the charity drive follows to keep things fun
The Accuser Shalt NOT be Anonymous! All must be accountable for their
All Defendants shall be posessing of a sense of
humor: Those who refuse or
otherwise freak out shall be left alone.
A defendant may only be tried but ONCE a year:
Innocent or Guilty, those
who have faced The Order are immune from further prosecution for the rest
of the charity drive.
All funds raised by the Order of Pi are entirely for
charity: The Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island receives the majority of proceeds, while two dollars are donated to
the Mustard Seed food bank for each pie ordered.
The members of the Order of Pi will always conduct
themselves in a
respectful and humorous manner: No one shall be bullied, humiliated or
hurt by their actions, lest the offending monk be permanently stripped of
office and pied in the face forthwith!
Common Misconceptions About the Order
We pie people against their will
Anyone slated for a pie in the face is first approached and given ample
opportunity to express their aversion to a pie in the face. Nobody gets
pied against their will: That would be assault.
We throw pies through the air

We waste perfectly good food
The dubious food value of synthetic cream pies aside, the Order of Pi does
not encourage the throwing out of any used pies: We employ a pie catcher
lined with a hygenic plastic bag to catch all falling pie during the
execution, and this bag is given to the condemned to take home. Most
people won't admit it, but they do eat the pie later when no one is
We pie people for revenge
All prospective orders placed during the annual charity drive are
carefully screened to ensure that the Accuser is a friend of the person to
be pied, that this person posesses the sense of humor necessary to be
amused by the concept. We insist that the accuser provide us with charges
so that we can ensure that the motive for the pieing is fun and not spite.
Anonymous pieings and venomous or hurtful accusations are forbidden by the
laws of the Order of Pi, and any order that breaks this criteria is not
We play pranks at the expense of the public
Ah... That would be UBC, not UVic. We've never figured out how to
dismantle Volkswagons like they can. We just raise money for the
children's hospital and a foundation for the physically and mentally
challenged, and leave the high rise acrobatics to them.
