122 Eat the Mud Pie Katie Couric

FILE: Katie Couric Announces She Will Leave "CBS Evening News"

In 2005 I was waiting tables at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company in Times Square. One afternoon, I heard one of the servers say, “Did you see that Katie Couric is over there?”

I had not seen Ms. Couric, so I walked over to the nearest Aloha Station and took a peek.

She was at a table with Laci Peterson’s mom, and someone else, conducting an informal interview. They had just finished lunch and someone brought over a piece of Alabama Mud Pie for dessert.

Laci Peterson’s mom and the other guest dug right in, while Katie watched them eat. So I made up a song.

In the style of Punk Rock, I would yell the following phrases over and over again while varying my pitch slightly half way through each phrase:

Eat the Mud Pie, Katie Couric!!

Eat the Mud Pie, Katie Couric!!

Eat the Damn Pie, Katie Couric!!

Eat the Mud Pieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

It was one of the better ditties that I wrote at the restaurant that year.
