One of Dr. McElhone's more fun adages went, sort of: "breakfast is an RC Cola and a MoonPie". At the time, I don't think I'd ever seen a MoonPie, New England and all that. Just to confirm, I consulted The Wiki, happily discovering I remembered correctly. The little grey cells aren't all done.

There is a custom for eating Moon pies with RC Cola, although the origin of this is unknown.

He also had a long held antipathy for pie charts. That's more common these days. Thanks to the folks at MicroSoft we get an R version of a different kind of "pie" chart. Not only is it a really effective way to present data, but look closely. Orange Julius Caesar is gulling you. Again.

" I don't think I'd ever seen a MoonPie, New England and all that. .."

There were Moon Pies available in the mom & pop corner stores all over the greater New Haven area where I grew up...

Southern New England and all that?....

However, the RC Cola didn't migrate with the Moon Pie as the accompanying beverage of choice...

Too bad you didn't see the Moon Pie in your neck of New England...
