Michael Martin is more than just a gay comedian. He’s a pie enthusiast. A pie connoisseur. A pie gourmand. A piesmith! And as you’ll see on his blog Pie Folk, where he shares recipes and stories, he often cooks in his underwear. Or just an apron. I’m not sure any of that will appeal, then, to President Barack Obama, who Michael wants to have over for a slice of berries and flaky crust and a frank chat about marriage equality, but maybe all that sugary goodness will be enough to get Michelle to RSVP. Either way, can someone figure out how to make eating pie a way to help us secure marriage rights? Because I swear, I’ll do my part and eat at least four pans worth of Michael’s tasty treats.
And now just because, some photos of Michael at work.
Wow this just made me miss Pushing Daisies.
Please be gay!
I think I’m a little grossed out. Not sure. I do know I don’t want nudity near my pie.
And btw, Michael Martin, baking pie in the nude and inviting the President over to eat it is the “creepy gay way”.
I’m just sayin’.
@Taylor Siluwé: I’m a lot grossed out.
This is certainly one of “Queerty’s top ten dumbest posts.”
piehole.wordpress.com no longer works!!!
i get it, he’s a master baker.
he’s got access to sharp cutty implements. yikes!
i don’t even want to contemplate the contents of his piping bag, but he’s probably not using “real” cream. *shudders*
This guy is sweet, the whole video is cute, fun, silly, innocent, maybe he’ll get an invite to the WH, stranger things have happened. In a time of all the negative stuff happening some light hearted diversions.
@ronsfo: Do you think a guy who posts a video of himself baking in the nude is really gonna get him an invite to the White House….? I don’t think so, Obama ain’t about to had the Right a freebie…..Just as the fundies live in a bubble and only know how to speak to their choir, some on the side of equality are the same way…This is not how you get the POTUS’ attention…at least not in a positive way…neither is it the way you reach out to moderates…It’s just entertaining the choir…..which is hopefully all he was aiming for.
I don’t think I’ll be eating any of his pie.
FOX would have a field day. Sarah Palin would release an orgasm of tweets. Glenn Beck would get a larger chalk-board to map out his massive new conspiracy theory — the Soros/Obama/Gay Nazi take over of America.
@Shannon: Yeah, he can’t eat his own pie.
Thanks for your feedback, guys.
I’m just trying to reach out to people and start a dialogue. The fact that I run a silly, sometimes sexy, whimsical blog shouldn’t preclude me from asking to speak with my president about my human rights. I guess I thought that my own gay rights were worth mentioning and asking for. Aren’t yours?
Shouldn’t you be asking for your own gay civil rights instead of grumbling about me doing it for you?
Oh, yeah. And you don’t have to say that you won’t be eating my pie. I don’t recall offering it to you. I offered it to the Obamas.
The tone in this video doesn’t register very genuine. Is this a video about marriage equality or about an actor trying to gain visibility for his blog? I bet he is getting more hits on his blog than ever before – and not for the right reasons. HAHAHA What a twerp.
@Michael Martin: dude, recognize the snark…nobody is slamming you for asking for human rights. I applaud it. Snark, ok?
@Michael Martin: The dialogue started a while ago. And I don’t need you to ask for anything for me.
I would suggest that if you’re going to continue to try to do comedy, or satire, or whatever that was, you develop a lot thicker skin. You’ll need it.
Those are some of the most unsexy pictures I’ve ever seen.
@Michael Martin: Do us all a favor and keep your clothes on and give up trying to get attention. Nobody cares what you have to say.
Again. Thanks for the feedback, guys.
I love pie. And I love your glasses. Nobody made a better apple pie than my mom. Since she passed, I have tried, fruitlessly (bad pun), to equal hers. It ain’t going to happen. But there isn’t anything I would not do for a piece of rhubarb, custard pie.
No disrespect to the pies, I’m sure they’re great. And I sincerely hope sales go through the roof.
But dude … the nudity and invitation to the Obamas begged for snark. Don’t act surprised.
But thanks for crusading for my rights in your odd little way.
That’s not snark. I crusade oddly as well … 😉
Thanks, Taylor. I like to let my freak flag fly. Carry on!
