(RNN) – Lick your chops. This is National Pie Day.
It’s a holiday of sorts honoring that little slice of life many of us enjoy.
The National Pie Council sponsors the event, but it’s the brainchild of Charlie Papazian, a nuclear engineer, brewer and teacher from Boulder, CO, who came up with the idea in the mid-1970s. Jan. 23 is his birthday. If you can’t celebrate with a cake, why not pie?
Things like National Pie Day really get the creative juices flowing on social media.
So, pull up a chair, grab a plate and a napkin. You’re about to be served.

This pie is a little creepy.
Obligatory pie-in-the-face tweet.
What would National Pie Day be without a pie chart?

You can’t have pie day without “D’oh.”

Everyone wants to have their pie and eat it too.

Time to lick your paws.
Great, it’s #NationalPieDay! Another day I have to eat standing on my hind legs or knock a whole plate of something on the floor...Can you humans just not put a little pie in my bowl and save me the work? pic.twitter.com/XmyGn1k4cA
