Achim didn't know what a pork pie was and he didn't want to know, but...
Achim did some research. Achim discovered that a porky cannot be eaten, only told. Achim was not pie in the sky about that.
The recipe was too complicated. No! Achim was not going to make a pork pie. No way!
The supermarkets had no pork pies, no pies at all, totally pieless. There was certainly a dearth of pies in that part of the world, not that Achim cared.
Please understand! I think that I know what pork pie is, but I don't have one, I'm not going to make one and I don't care.
